About This Activity

Chosen by Trail Runner Magazine as one of “America’s 14 most scenic races” and by Colorado Runner as 2008′s Best Half Marathon, the Salomon Golden Leaf Half-Marathon is one of the most beautiful foot races in the Rockies. This 13.3 mile half marathon traverses from Snowmass Village to the heart of Aspen on mountain trails and roads at the height of Colorado’s breathtaking fall colors.

Event details and schedule

Online registration opened at noon on April 16 and closed at 5pm the same day. We reached our race cap of 100 people at that time. We will not be taking a wait list or allowing cancellations. It is possible to transfer in you can connect with a registered participant who has decided not to race.

Estimating Your Time is MANDATORY: Typically you can add 30 minutes to the time of your road half marathon with no elevation gain (more if you are unaccustomed to an elevation of 8000 feet). Another way to estimate your time is to compare yourself to how racers finished in 2013. Out of 761 finishers in 2013, the following results were achieved:  1st place - 1hr 35min; 50th place - 1:56; 100th place - 2:06; 190th place (top 1/4) - 2:16; 380th place (middle of the pack) - 2:33; 570th Place (top 3/4) - 2:51. Please try to be realistic with your time as this will allow the waves to work properly and reduce congestion on the course.

Wave Placements will be posted the Wednesday before the race. Placement in waves depends on racers historical times or estimated time.

Race Start Time is 8:30am Saturday, September 26th. Timing Chips are Mandatory and are attached to your bib. Chip, bib and goody bag pick-up is scheduled at the Ute Mountaineer 9/23 & 9/24 9am-8pm and on 9/25 9am-9:30pm. Race day packet, bib, chip pick-up is 7-8:15am at the Westin Hotel in Snowmass Village.

A gear shuttle is available from race start to finish. Public transportation leaves Rubey Park (3 blocks from the finish line) in Aspen for Snowmass Village regularly - bus and race shuttle schedules have not been determined at the time of registration posting.

2015 Race Results will be available after the race at the finish line and at the Ute, as well as online at
