TransRockies Run Sets Off TodayPosted on the 14 August 2012 by Kungfujedi
The Transrockies is a test of endurance and determination, as each day the runners are tasked with completing a 20-mile (32km) trail run at altitudes ranging from 7400 (2255 meters) to 12,400 (3779 meters) feet in the beautiful Rocky Mountains. The 180 teams of two, plus 100 solo racers, will travel on foot all day and camp together each night as they make their way along the course, which features more than 20,000 feet of accumulative vertical gain.
As much as this is a race it is also billed as a "running vacation" and it looks like it is great fun for participants. Many of those taking part in the event are simply out for a great adventure on the trails in Colorado, but even still, they need to be in great shape to complete the entire course. Good luck to everyone hitting the trail to day and enjoy the next few days in the mountains.
