Get your running (or walking) shoes ready for the race, which winds 6.2 miles through breathtaking Indian Creek Canyon in the height of the fall colors. A race application is available on page 16.
The course is ideal for a 10K race, with a gentle downward slope and constantly turning road. The fall colors of the cottonwood trees are stunning.
In November, 2007, soon after the inaugural Newspapers Rock race, Runners World highlighted the Indian Creek corridor in their monthly Rave Run feature.
The magazine raved about the canyon, stating there “is a scenic treat around every corner.”
Race director Scott Burton encourages runners to sign up early to secure a t-shirt, which designer Andrea Montgomery says is sure to become a collector’s item, like the shirts from previous years.
Early registration hints that there will be significantly more runners for the 2010 race.
