Join us in beautiful Western Colorado for the tfourth annual DreamCatcher Half Marathon. Following the Riverfront Trail along the Colorado River, you'll get to experience the views that the locals brag about - the Colorado National Monument, The Grand Mesa and the Bookcliffs. This event is geared to every level of participant - to the first-timer to the seasoned half marathon runner - there's something for everyone.

Our goal is to get EVERYONE happily to the finish line - through cheer and encouragement stations, ample aid stations, pacers and the ultimate reward - a unique finisher's medal that you will be proud to show off.

New this year!  a One Mile Kid's Dash!  Bring the kids out and get them into the sport that welcomes everyone at every ability!

All runners will receive a gender-specific t-shirt.  However, anyone registered AFTER February 1, 2017 will not be guaranteed a shirt.   *** Please note that the women's cut t-shirt runs small ***

Online registration closes at midnight on March 1, 2017.  If space is available, packet pick up and race day registration will be available.  

Make sure you check out and like our Facebook Page!  You never know when there will be a discount listed there!

Starunner Enterprises is pulling out all the bells and whistles for the fourth running of the DreamCatcher Half Marathon! This is a perfect event for all levels of runner - from first time to seasoned runner.

DreamCatcher Half Marathon is USATF Certified! USATF Certificate #CO15018DCR!  

For the Half Marathon -

Full course support (water, hydration, fuel, encouragement, porto-pots), gender specific t-shirt, after-race party, SWAG bag and the most awesomest medal. In addition, there will be 4 Over All Awards presented to the first place male and female and to the "Had to Work the Hardest for the Goal" (last) male and female (4 awards, total).

The course does have a 6 hour limit BUT if a participant reaches Mile 9 by Noon, they will be able to continue on with full course support and full finish line amenities. If, by some chance, a participant is not able to make it to Mile 9 by Noon, they will have the option to continue on without aid station support or be leap-frogged to the last mile to walk it in. Finish line amenities WILL STILL BE AVAILABLE.  After all, we're celebrating the effort of crossing that line and the accomplishment that it shows.

Hang around the finish and cheer runners and enjoy your post-race meal.   Prize raffle will begin about 11 am so keep a hold of your raffle ticket (must be present to win)!

Your registration includes full course support, chip timing, aid stations with water, Skratch Labs, Honey Stingers (located around mile 9), unique race shirt in men and women's cut, unique finisher's medal, finish line snacks and hydration, a post-race celebration meal and a beer from Kannah Creek Brewery.  The Kid's Dash includes everything but the Celebration meal.

Guaranteed T-Shirt size is only available for registrations received BY February 1, 2017.

DreamCatcher Half Marathon utilizes a reverse-wave start system where the longer expected finishers start before the quicker finishers.  This ensures course support for EVERYONE and an exciting finish line thrill! You will be asked to select your start time when you register.  In order to ensure accurate timing, we ask that you stick with your designated race start time.

Start Times:

  1. Expected finish of 4-6 hours: 7:00 am
  2. Expected finish of 3-4 hours: 7:30 am
  3. Expected finish of 2-3 hours: 8:00 am
  4. Expected finish of 2 hours or faster: 8:30 am

The Kid's Dash will start at 10:00 am.  If you are running the Half marathon and want to run with your child during the Kid's Dash, please pick the appropriate start time so you can finish your race in time for the Kid's Dash start at 10:00 am.
