Description

_ The 2020 Rim Rock Marathon:

Winding over the Colorado National Monument from Grand Junction to Fruita, Colorado, the U.S. Bank Rim Rock Run boasts scenery unlike any other marathon. The peaceful course features views of towering monoliths, vast plateaus and canyon panoramas. Sheer-walled, red rock canyons surround the twists and turns of the course.


In addition to a marathon and marathon relay, the U.S. Bank Rim Rock Run also includes a Half Marathon or 12K featuring gravity-defying boulders, tunnels carved of stone and red-rock canyons! 

From the start at Saddlehorn, the net downhill Half Marathon course will first wind up to Monument Canyon View pull-out, and then back down into the heart of Fruita.

If you’re not feeling the 5K run uphill at the start of the Half Marathon, you can opt to do a 12K instead! The 12K racers will start from the same location as the half marathoners, but instead of running uphill for the first 3 miles, runners will enjoy an all down-hill course from Saddlehorn rest area to the post-run celebration in Frutia. 

All races finish in downtown Fruita’s Circle Park, at a celebration that includes live entertainment, local food, and a beer garden.

Proceeds from the U.S. Bank Rim Rock Run benefit scholarships for  Colorado Mesa University Track and Cross Country student-athletes and the Greater Grand Junction Sports Commission.
