On April 16, 2023 we will be celebrating 50 years of the Horsetooth Half. What started out as a bet between friends in April 1974 has grown to become a beloved Fort Collins spring running tradition.
Whether a veteran race participant or a first-time runner, we’d love to see you on the start line to help us mark the 50th running of the race. We’d also love to see you at some of our anniversary events leading up to race day. These will include a speaker series, a pre-race meal and other events to be announced.
If you’re local, please also consider joining us at any of our free weekly training events, beginning in early January and leading all the way up to the race. The Horsetooth Half Marathon is more than a race. We believe in building community and nurturing a love for running through shared experiences.
