Moonlight Miles 10k & Half Marathon
|Date: Oct 7, 2017|
|Start Times: Half - 6:00 pm • 10k - 6:30 pm|
|Location: 361 32 Road, Grand Junction, CO|
Join us on the evening of October 7, 2017 for this beautiful night race! The 10k is an out and back and the Half Marathon is a 2 loop course of the James M Robb Colorado River State Park.
Both courses encompass the Corn Lake and Pear Park Sections of the Riverfront trail where you'll traverse through protected wetlands and watch the moon rise over the Grand Mesa. The course will be dark by the middle of the race with solar lights lighting the areas of the course but it won't be enough to light your way, so headlamps, knuckle lights or a flashlight are required. Each runner is required to wear a safety vest and we strongly encourage the creative juices to flow with as much glow-in-the-dark stuff you can fit (and wear comfortably) on your body!
With a 5 hour time limit for the Half Marathon and a 4 hour time limit for the 10k, Moonlight Miles is ideal for walkers and runners of all abilities.
All participants MUST wear a safety vest and have some form of light (knuckle, head, flashlight). These are not provided by the race.
Required (not provided):
Safety Vest Head lamp or Knuckle Lights
Anything "glow-in-the-dark" Costumes Insect Repellent - STRONGLY recommended!
Dogs Cats Mice Scooters Bikes Anything motorized or wheeled
All participants get to celebrate their finish with a good ole fashioned cook out with hot dogs, veggie dogs, all the fixin's, chips, fruit, soda and 3.2 beer (Colorado State Parks prohibit liquor or beer over 3.2 percent alcohol). Hunker around the campfire after your race and enjoy time with friends, family and fellow runners sharing tall tales, funny experiences and ghost stories. Finish up with the flagship dessert for summer camping, S'mores, and rest well with memories and stories to last a life time.
