STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — There might be snow and ice covering the sidewalks of Steamboat Springs, but an early sign of spring is here. Registration for the 2020 Steamboat Running Series opens Jan. 1, 2020, on the organization’s website.

The series is composed of 11 races, as well as the Steamboat Marathon and Run Rabbit Run, which are hosted by separate entities.

Runners can register for one race at a time, or for multiple races at a discounted price.

Participants who compete in more than one race can accumulate points from each performance. To be eligible for the end-of-series awards, runners must have completed three races longer than 10-kilometer and two races 10K or shorter. However, those younger than 12 or older than 70 do not have to complete a minimum number of races.

Points are awarded to overall placers and the top finishers in each age group.

The first race, the Luck of the Irish 7K, is just over three months away on March 14. The majority of the races are on Saturdays throughout the summer, with the series concluding Oct. 31 with the Halloween Foundry 5K.
