On July 21, Sunlight will host the first-ever Sunny Half Marathon, with proceeds benefiting the Glenwood Springs High School Cross-Country team. The first run of its kind to be held at Sunlight, the 13.1 mile course features both double- and single-track trail ascending Sunlight’s 9,860 foot peak overlooking Mt. Sopris.
The course follows the summit of Compass Peak to the West then descends into the resort’s Babbish Gulch backcountry trail system. All ages and ability levels are encouraged to enter and the first 150 people to sign up get a free Sunny Half t-shirt.
The first place men’s and women’s finishers will win a 1 night stay for up to 4 people at the Brettelberg Slopeside Hotel-Condo at Sunlight Mountain Resort. Other prizes include 2018/19 lift tickets to Sunlight and gift cards. The cost is $55 to enter and proceeds benefit the Glenwood Springs High School Cross-Country team.
