Love the Run You’re With race set for Saturday
February 15, 2012
Steamboat Springs — Don't worry, powder hounds. She wasn't complaining. Lisa Barbour just said the Howelsen Hill course set for this weekend's Love the Run You're With 10-kilometer race was just about perfect before the snow gods finally smiled on Steamboat Springs.
The dump of powder had her and other runners out trying to pack down the trails, and on Thursday, she said they'd be ready.
The race costs $20 and begins at 9 a.m. Saturday at Howelsen Hill in downtown Steamboat Springs.
"It was beautiful," she said with a laugh. "We've been out working on it a lot."
Racers can hit the course in shoes or hiking boots, or they can strap on traction equipment or even snowshoes to navigate the course.
Barbour said she'd provide course updates on the Steamboat Springs Running Series website at http://www.runningseries.com.
The money for the race will benefit Yampatika's environmental education efforts.
