Packet pick up, bus loading location changed for Basalt Half Marathon

Staff report

Due to the construction at Basalt Middle School, there have been a couple of changes to Saturday's Basalt Half Marathon. Race day sign up, packet pick up and bus loading will now take place at Lion's Park in Basalt, and not the middle school.

Registration will be held from 6:15 to 7 a.m. on Saturday. Cost is $80, with the proceeds benefitting the Basalt High School cross country program.

The bus leaves at 7 a.m. sharp to make the 7:45 a.m. race start near the base of the Ruedi Dam.

Most of the course takes place on the paved Frying Pan Road with a finish at Lion's Park. There are three aid stations along the course.
