Alley Loop Nordic Marathon

February 1

Alley Loop Taylor Ahearn Photo

Hosted by the Crested Butte Nordic Council, the course winds its way through snow-laden streets, alleyways and narrow bridges through the heart of downtown Crested Butte. At any given time you may be cheered-on by town revelers, find yourself surrounded by Oompa Loompas, or navigating a crazy costume train assemblage… Racers are sometimes forced into making daring passes and depending on their luck, may even get waylaid on a bridge for a brief moment. Once you make it through town, you are rewarded by pristine tracks and exhilarating vistas throughout the Crested Butte Nordic trail network. If you like normal, you may want to look for another race. If you are up for anything, this is right up your alley!
