Spanish Peaks Striders: Aguilar 125th Anniversary 12.5K
August 3, 2019, marks the 125th anniversary for the Town of Aguilar, CO, in the shadow of Southern Colorado’s Spanish Peaks on the Highway of Legends Scenic Byway. What better way to kickoff the festivities than a 12.5K (7 & 3/4 mi.) race?! Or team up as a couple, family, or best buddies partnership for the 2-person relay by splitting the essentially flat “out and back” course half and half. The race begins at 146 Main St. at the Park area in the vicinity of the Fire Station and Library. Runners will briefly head east on Main Street, turning left on Balsam, then right on Linden, before turning left to head northward on the asphalt surface of Fir Street (CR 53.7). The course then goes eastbound at CR 60 (gravel/dirt surface) to the turnaround point which is also the relay exchange location for those competing in the relay division. The route back is over the same path before sharing the joy of the accomplishment and joining in the celebratory activities that await in downtown Aguilar. A total of 11 awards will be made as follows: The top three male and female finishers, the top male and female Grand Masters finishers (age 50 and over) and the top 3 relay teams. If these categories are not filled the remaining awards will be presented to females and males evenly according to the finish within the gender categories. Note: Relay entries should be aware that the team is responsible for stationing the second leg runner at the relay exchange/turnaround location. (Shuttle service will not be available.)
