Inaugral race for a local race director. breathtaking scenery, same course as the vacation races Rockies. No expo , just packet pick up. Hubby registered last minute purely based on how beautiful it was there. Picked this race since we were going to the area anyway and I could cross of Colorado. Had to walk a lot since running at altitude was very hard on my breathing. Only about 150 participants, friendly race director was open to all suggestions. hope this race will survive coming back again! A really nice after party, a kids race after and everyone just hung around taking in the scenery and cheering for the all the racers!
