Are you ready for a challenge of a life time? If so, 135 miles of tough Colorado roads await you.

 Runners will go over two paved mountain passes at an average altitude of almost 9,000 feet. You will travel the road from Walden Colorado along the Continental Divide- you will see wildlife, trees, rivers and mountain ranges. You will experience weather ranging from 90 degrees to snow. The divide will be in full view as you run over  "Muddy Pass" and see the sign the indicates the Pacific and Atlantic watershed point. You will run through the self proclaimed "sportsman's paradise" town of Kremmling and into beautiful downtown Silverthorne- you will run miles around the amazing Dillon Lake and into historic downtown Frisco. From Frisco the course takes you along a beautiful and secluded path that snakes along the base of some of Colorado's highest peaks and into the ski village of Copper Mountain. From the base of the ski resort you will experience the signature of The Divide 135- The last 24 miles of the race are a steep uphill  for 8 miles to the summit of the 11,300 feet Fremont Pass, and then (if your fried quads can take it) you have a blistering fast downhill finish into the iconic Ultra- Marathon mecca of Leadville, CO for a finish line you will never forget.

You have my utmost respect for taking on such a great challenge, and you have my personal commitment to attempting to bring you the best race experience possible.

 I look forward to meeting you all.
