About This Activity

Run The Ranch

The Highlands Ranch Half Marathon is a premier race that celebrates and promotes the beauty and uniqueness of Highlands Ranch, while encouraging fitness and raising money to help its community.

Highlands Ranch Half Marathon

The Highlands Ranch Half Marathon combines the beauty and serenity of the Douglas County Backcountry with the charming streets and neighborhoods of a pleasant community that was quite literally once a ranch. With over 11 miles of gorgeous mountain views of the Colorado Front Range, 4 miles of groomed dirt roads through pine trees and rocky bluffs, and a 1,000 foot vertical descent this half marathon is a must run for all ability levels.

The Course

The Highlands Ranch Half Marathon course was designed by runners to be fast and scenic but still challenging. Youll enjoy 11 miles of gorgeous mountain views of the Colorado Front Range and 4 miles of groomed dirt roads through pine trees and rocky bluffs. With a 1,000 foot vertical descent this is arguably the fastest half marathon in the Denver Metro Area. But watch out in the last mile and a half. The uphill kicker down the stretch will test your mettle!

The race starts in the southeast end of Daniels Park (buses will take you from the Finish to the Start) and heads west towards the mountains for approximately 11 miles before turning north and then back east to the Finish Line at Highlands Ranch Town Center. Water and aid stations will be placed frequently along the course. Key elevation stats are as follows: Start Elevation: 6,583; Max Elevation: 6,598; Min Elevation: 5,576; Finish Elevation: 5,695.
