Platte River Half

April 9 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

Welcome to the 14th Annual Platte River Half-Marathon and Buckhorn Exchange Relay, benefitting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. This point to point course is certified by USATF and has been recognized as Competitor Magazine’s Best Half-Marathon and Post-Race Party and Colorado Runner Magazine’s Best Half-Marathon and Best Post-Race Party. The race will begin at the intersection of Alamo Ave. and Prince Streets next to the Downtown Littleton Light Rail Station and run through the streets of Littleton before joining the Platte River Trail to run 10 miles downstream to Denver. The course will leave the trail for the final 1.1 miles at 8th Avenue and head east over the 8th Avenue Viaduct to the finish at the Buckhorn Exchange at 10th Avenue and Osage Street. There is an approximate net elevation drop of 120 feet with only one uphill section on the course from 12 to 12 ½ miles as you cross the 8th Avenue Viaduct. The surface throughout the race is asphalt and concrete with over 50% of the trail adjacent to the course consisting of dirt and crushed gravel.
