Charity races return to Marble Sunday

MARBLE – The ninth annual Lead King Loop Charity Races to benefit the Marble Charter School will take place Sunday.

There will be a 25-kilometer race, a 12.5-kilometer race and a kids 2.5-kilometer event. Racers, runners and hikers are welcome.

The course goes through some of the most scenic terrain in the area. In fact, Colorado Runner magazine has named it the most scenic race in the state. The 25-kilometer course starts outside Marble, climbs into Lead King Basin and loops down to Crystal and back to Marble. The race is the Colorado state championship for USA Track and Field.

All runners receive swag and get treated to a barbecue. Information is available at or at Independence Run and Hike in Carbondale.
