Seven feet of snow hampering Colorado marathon

Snowdrifts in some areas up to seven feet high. 

Well that’s inconvenient. 

As of two days ago, runners in Colorado were still clearing snow from their marathon path. In fact, there was so much snow that they could ski as of last weekend.

“Due to late season snowfall in the Rocky Mountains, the organizers of the Blueprint for Athletes Leadville Trail Marathon and Heavy Half Marathon are still shoveling out trails to prepare for race day,” says

The shovelers are clearing snowdrifts in some areas up to seven feet (2+ meters) high.
