Black Squirrel Half Marathon

Saturday September 11th, 2021

Fort Collins, Colorado

Official Website


Taking place on the trails of Lory State Park to the northwest of Fort Collins, Colorado, the Black Squirrel Trail Half Marathon offers a perimeter tour of the park, providing breathtaking views to the east of Horsetooth Reservoir, Fort Collins and the Great Plains; and to the west of the awe-inspiring Rocky Mountain peaks.

The race covers a variety of terrain, with a mix of technical and non-technical hard-pack trails. After a mile of dirt roads, the trail ascends a little under 4 miles and 1,500 feet to the apex of the course on Lory’s west ridge. The views are well worth the climb. A rapid and – at times – technical descent follows, leaving three and a half miles of gently rolling and smooth singletrack into the finish.

After the race, kick back and enjoy a hearty breakfast, awards and generous sponsor giveaways at the newly updated Soldier Canyon Picnic Area. Our aim is to offer a trail running experience that is challenging, yet accessible to all.
