Many of your questions about the Haulin’ Aspen will be answered by looking through our frequently asked questions list below. If you find that your question is not answered, send us an email!

Can I walk?2020-07-11T18:24:26-07:00

Absolutely! We encourage everyone to participate but ask that you choose an appropriate distance (not the marathon.) Walkers should start in the back to allow the faster runners to get through. The cutoff for official timing is 1 pm. All runners still on course after 1pm will be shuttled back to the finish area. (The full marathon course is challenging so we strongly discourage walking this course to avoid missing the 1pm cut-off time.)

Are there any age restrictions?2018-10-18T15:47:41-07:00

We’ve spoken to many coaches about age-appropriate distances. 12 year-olds may participate in the Half As, but must run with a parent. Children must be 16 years or older to participate in the half and full marathon.

Can someone pick up my race packet for me?2020-07-11T18:17:37-07:00

Yes, but only if you have signed your waivers online. Without your waivers signed, they will not be able to pick up your packet.
