Trans Rockies is underway…

Posted in At the Races on Wed 14 Aug ’13


2012 defending champions and top US ultra-trailers Rob Krar and Michael Smith, raced to a stage one win yesterday as the 2013 Trans Rockies run got underway in Buena Vista, Colorado …

The runners lined up under the TransRockies Run arch in the quaint neighborhood of South Main in Buena Vista. Under blue skies, our Trail Striders hit the trails at 8:30 AM sharp.

For most, the TransRockies Run isn’t just a race. It’s a celebration of trail running and the outdoors and an opportunity to experience extraordinary places that most will never see. With running partners from around the world, this ‘race’ is not only about pushing your limits, but making friendships that will stand the test of time. When the gun went off this morning, three hundred and sixty new friends took to the trails of Colorado to test their minds and bodies and ‘Find out what’s inside…outside’.
