Known as America’s Highest Road Race, The Mt. Evans Ascent is a half marathon plus and it is all up hill. As one of the runners told me yesterday “the first hill is the toughest”. Runners start at Echo Lake at 10,600 feet and climb 4,000 vertical feet – much of it above treeline – 14.5 miles to the finish line located at the summit of one of the most recognizable peaks on Denver’s mountain skyline – 14,264 foot Mt. Evans. No easy task. LEG LUBE Performance Shave Gel is proud to be a sponsor of this years race and we want to congratulate all of the runners who participated yesterday. It was a pleasure to see you all succeed – even if we did get a little rained on :-).
