Every November the Highlands Ranch Community Association (HRCA) Backcountry Wilderness Half-Marathon is held on the open space just south of Highlands Ranch. Running official race courses is one of the best ways to judge your fitness without paying an entry fee, and the HRCA course is one of the best in the Denver area, with rolling terrain, hard climbs, and grand vistas. This is a great run to test out your fitness, especially if you are training for a longer trail race or just want to see how you would do in a half-marathon. From the parking area, start by following the paved bike path, called the West Big Dry Creek Path, through the neighborhood as it winds out to the open space.
