CREEDE — Almost a decade ago Forrest Getz and Heather Dutton organized the High Country Hustle 6K run/walk as a way to raise awareness about water issues. Since then with the help of the Rio Grande Headwaters Restoration Project (RGHRP) and the Headwaters Alliance (HA) the High Country Hustle has evolved over the years into the Runoff Runoff.

The aim of the annual event remains as a medium to help spread knowledge and awareness about local watershed issues. In addition, all proceeds from the event benefit RGHRP and the HA, which work to improve the health of the Rio Grande Watershed. Over time the Runoff Runoff has expanded to be more than just a running event. The after-party included merriments from a music festival featuring Bruce Hayes and Moors and McCumber to a barbecue featuring beer from Three Barrel Brewing Company of Del Norte.

The Marathon itself follows the Rio Grande as it flows down hill on fairly even ground. The complete results are as follows.
