The 35th Annual Mount Sopris Run off & 4 Mile Fair Run is happening again in 2013! Come and join us for this funky, fun and challenging 14+ mile race or for the super fast down hill 4 Mile Fair Run. Both races are held in conjunction with and finish on the ground of the Carbondale Mountain Fair. Registration is only $30. The race starts in Basalt (Emma) climbs 1500 feet up West Sopris Creek Road, then descends 1700 feet past the 4 mile start and into Carbondale, finishing in Sopris Park, where Mountain Fair activities are just beginning. Bus service is available before the 4 Mile race (from Sopris Park) to get you to the start and after the 14 mile race to get you back to your car (if needed) at the start of that race. For more information call 970.704.0909.
