Cruise - 10.5 km

Cruise is the third and final stage of the Half Pint.  This is a beautiful, rolling 10.5 km jaunt on the northern slopes of the Columbia River valley, featuring the rotary trail and the 2016-built new trails. The first and last 2.5 km of the course is on the double-wide, gravel-surfaced town trail, so you can bask in the glory of cheering spectators.  The remaining running is on some buff and flowy single track.


Important Course Update - September 20, 2017

Due to trail closures within the Town of Golden we've had to reroute the first 2.5 km and last 2.5 km of the course.  The distance remains the same and the elevation remains the same.
