Formerly known as the Steamboat Stinger, the Honey Stinger Emerald Mountain Epic aims to provide a challenging backcountry race experience showcasing some of Steamboat Springs’ finest singletrack. Beginning at the Howelsen Hill Ski Area in the heart of Steamboat Springs, the course takes an extended tour deep into the beautiful backcountry of Routt County before returning to the transition/finish area. Racers wind through open meadows, aspen forests and wild sage gardens offering incredible views of the surrounding peaks and valleys.

The Honey Stinger Emerald Mountain Epic will feature marathon or half marathon distance trail running in-person races, as well as those same distances and a 10k in a non-competitive virtual format.  Get more info at emeraldmtnepic.org.
