Race Day

Can I wear headphones?

For your safety and the safety of all of our participants, headphones are not allowed.

What should I wear for the race?

Please wear your race number on the front of your body.  This allows accuracy for our timers which leads to better results for you!  Steamboat is normally a ‘steamy’ day, so dress accordingly for the weather conditions.

Can I bring my dog?

As much as we love our four legged friends, they create a safety hazard for other participants.  Please leave your dog at home on Steamboat Classic day!.

Can I bring my stroller?

We encourage family participation, but strollers create a hazard for other participants.  We encourage you to participate with your family in the 2 mile race.  If your child isn’t ready for the 2 mile, please a care giver who can hang with them while you run (or jog or walk).

Post Race Party

What do I need to attend the post race party?

No tickets needed!  After successfully completing the Steamboat Classic race of your choice, proceed through the finish line, grab a water, and head to the post race party.  Food, Pepsi products, and Bud Light will be ready for you!
