2024 Race Update - The marathon and half marathon are both full, and while runners are still being invited off of the waitlist, there will be no race day registrations for either event. Online registration for the 2 mile run will remain open through Thursday at noon. You may also register for that event on Friday night/Saturday morning for $15. The runner pre-race email will be sent out on Monday. Pictures of current course conditions will be posted early in the week as well to this website. Course conditions are really good overall, and we look forward to seeing everyone soon at the Run Through Time!
The 19th Annual Run Through Time Marathon, Half Marathon, and 2 Mile Run will take place on Saturday, March 9, in Salida, CO. These beautiful, challenging courses are run on dirt/jeep roads and narrow, hilly single track with fantastic views of Salida and the Arkansas Valley. Elevations range from 7000-9000 feet. Foot travel only. There is a 7 1/2 hour time limit for the marathon, and a 5 hour time limit for the half marathon. No crews or pacers on either course. Prizes will be awarded to the top three M/F in each race and top three F/M in each 10 year age group. A light hot meal will be available at the finish for contestants. All registered runners will receive custom race socks. There is a 500 person combined limit for the half marathon and full marathon (split mostly evenly between the two events).
Race takes place on the Arkansas Hills Trail System, BLM and Forest Service land, and Chaffee County and City of Salida roads and property. Donations from proceeds from this event will be made to Salida Mountain Trails and Chaffee County Search and Rescue-South (over the last 15 years, over $60,000 from race proceeds has been donated). We greatly appreciate their support of this event, and their contributions to the Chaffee County community in general!
There will also be a 2 mile run (first 2 dirt road miles of the marathon and half marathon course), and a free kids’ 400 meter run, which will take place in Riverside Park. Please contact Kristy Falcon at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or if you are interested in sponsoring or volunteering at this event.
