Run, run, run this weekend

Runners can choose from a couple of unusual options this weekend – they can waddle or they can run a half-marathon.

The 23rd annual Basalt Half-Marathon will be held on Saturday morning, for those interested in a downhill 13-mile run.

The Basalt Half-Marathon will take runners from the Ruedi Dam down the Fryingpan Valley to the finish line in Basalt.

The race will start at 7:45 a.m. at the base of the dam.

A bus will leave Basalt Middle School at 7 a.m. to transport runners to the start.

Advance registration is $20 with race-day registration $25.

Registration forms are available from longtime race director Ron Lund at 927-3524.
