About This Activity

Up in the San Juan Mountains of Southern Colorado, the Rio Grande begins it's 1,800 mile journey to the Gulf of Mexico. The Runoff Runoff marathon and 6K follow the scenic headwaters of the Rio Grande ending to the historic mountain town of Creede, Colorado. Organized by the Willow Creek Reclamation Committee and the Rio Grande Headwaters Restoration Project, this event raises funds to support river restoration projects that improve water quality, wildlife habitat, recreation and the overall condition of the Rio Grande headwaters. 

The Runoff Runoff event includes both a marathon and a 6K race.  Following the race, there will be a fun celebration for the whole family complete with a silent auction, raffle, food venders, live music, and local beer!
