Rocky Mountain half marathon

Rocky Mountain Half Marathon  – August 12, 2017

Unleash your awesome!

The Rocky Mountain course has the highest overall elevation of the Vacation races series. There is one steady long climb, along with several shorter ones, and several sweeping descents! All this takes place at an average 7,500 feet above sea level, in glorious Estes Park, close to Rocky Mountain National Park. It is a challenging course, while also one that will inspire your senses as you reach incredible views of the majestic Rocky Mountains. It is definitely a race for the bucket list. Our customized activacuity® app provides a training program for your mind to get you race ready and prepared for your best race experience at Rocky. You can be just like the elites, and imagine yourself having your best race experience at Rocky ahead of race day.
Our unique category creator app will empower a positive attitude to deal with the common mental traps that runners can fall into ahead of a race:

  • Nerves – strategies that result in galvanizing your race performance and give you a positive race experience, rather than be paralyzed with performance limiting anxiety
  • How to relax running at altitude – a key session using a powerful technique to enable you to run at the appropriate intensity at altitude
  • Goals – how to set flexible goals and reduce mental pressure
  • Joy – how to connect with the joy you feel as a runner
  • How to unleash your awesome! – tips on how to maximize the awesome runner you truly are
