We’ve been hard at work fine tuning the Haulin’ Aspen to comply with regulations surrounding the COVID-19 mandates. We’re excited to offer a safe, state-of-the-art mountain trail race that complies with mask requirements and social distancing protocol and is supported by superb event and medical staff.

The spacious Wanoga Sno-Park allows for abundant elbow room at the starting line. Find your space!

Spectators will be limited. (Please invite only one of your people for support at Wanoga).

Runners should wear a mask at the starting line whenever social distancing is not possible. If you need a mask, just ask!

The race is chip timed, so feel free to hit the starting line whenever you feel the coast is clear (within a couple minutes of your wave start time!)

Runners will start in small waves for social distancing purposes and to prevent any clogging on the trails.

Please show up for your race no more than 30 minutes before your wave start time to keep our gathering size to a minimum.

Start times are as follows:


  • Waves 1 & 2 – 7:00am
  • Waves 3 & 4 – 7:10am

Half Marathon

  • Wave 1 – 8:00am
  • Wave 2 – 8:15am
  • Wave 3 – 8:30am
  • Wave 4 – 8:45am

Half -As

  • Wave 1 – 9:00am
  • Wave 2 – 9:15am
  • Wave 3 – 9:30am
  • Wave 4 – 9:45am

Due to COVID-19 guidelines, we are not offering a gear drop this year. Fortunately, there is ample parking near the start area. Please leave all gear and valuables locked in your car before the race start.

The event will be timed by Eclectic Edge Racing. The Haulin’ Aspen trail runs will be timed using a disposable timing transponder, commonly known asa “bib tag” that will be embedded in your race number. Please follow these instructions carefully:

  • Do not bend, fold, expose to heat, crinkle or otherwise modify your race bib as this will cause your tag to malfunction.
  • Wear your race bib on the front of your shirt, on the outermost layer of clothing. Not wearing the bib properly at all times during the race may prevent you from being timed, and therefore, not showing up in the results.
  • Bibs can only be transferred by going through the formal transfer process at packet pickup. Be careful not to switch with friends, family or others. It is critical that we have the correct names assigned to the correct people racing for safety reasons.
  • Make sure you cross the timing points at the start and finish of the race.
