The 45th annual Basalt half-marathon is set for Saturday, June 4, 2022, to benefit the Basalt High School Cross country team. The 13.1 mile race is open to individual racers and two-person relay teams (6.1 & 7 miles). The race starts 13.1 miles up Basalt’s scenic Frying Pan road that parallels the Frying Pan River, home to gold medal fly-fishing. After a ¼ mile start on a dirt road, the racers descend approximately 1,000 feet in elevation along the paved road with clearly marked mile markers and finish in downtown Basalt at Lion’s Park. There will be three aid stations along the way and each mile is clearly marked. CAUTION: This road will be open to traffic, racers should run single file or on the shoulder when they encounter oncoming vehicles. No cutting tangents is allowed and runners will be instructed to stay on the left facing traffic the entire course.
