We are pleased to introduce the Chugwater K9 Classic. This dog-friendly event will feature a half marathon, 10K, and 5k. Nestled in the valley, the Chugwater K9 Classic starts on Iron Mountain Road and ends at Chugwater School. The elevation profile shows the course as downhill, but it will feel more flat than downhill. The first 5.2 miles of the half marathon course is hardpack/gravel road. The remaining 7.9 miles are asphalt. The 10k and 5k courses are all asphalt.
