The 35th Annual Mount Sopris Run Off & 4 Mile Fair Run is coming again for 2014!

Come join us for this funky, fun and challenging 14+ mile race (we’re not too picky about the distance) or for the super-fast downhill 4 Mile Fair Run.  Held in conjunction with the Carbondale Mountain Fair, both races finish on the fairgrounds in Sopris Park.

The race starts in Basalt (Emma), climbs 1500 feet up West Sopris Creek Road, then descends 1,700 feet past the 4 mile start, goes into Carbondale, and finishes 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 if you left a car in Basalt.

For more information, please call 970.704.0909.
