Run The Ranch

The Highlands Ranch Half Marathon is a premier race that celebrates and promotes the beauty and uniqueness of Highlands Ranch, while encouraging fitness and raising money to help its community.

Highlands Ranch Half Marathon

The Highlands Ranch Half Marathon combines the beauty and serenity of the Douglas County Backcountry with the charming streets and neighborhoods of a pleasant community that was quite literally once a ranch. With over 11 miles of gorgeous mountain views of the Colorado Front Range, 4 miles of groomed dirt roads through pine trees and rocky bluffs, and a 1,000 foot vertical descent, this half marathon is a must run for all ability levels.

Our Mission

The Highlands Ranch Half Marathon is produced by runners with the goal of creating a second-to-none running experience. At the same time, the race promotes community service initiatives and causes that stimulate healthy living, volunteerism, and charitable giving as ways to transform lives for the better.

We strive to make a measurably meaningful and
 positive difference in the lives of our community members and beyond. We are committed to producing a premier, professionally operated running and entertainment event that leverages and celebrates the unique qualities of the home we call Highlands Ranch.
