In 2015, we had a wild idea. What if, instead of the names we all know and love, we sponsored a team of two everyday trail and ultrarunners with a passion for the sport, and gave them the chance to run one of the coolest ultras around and have the adventure of a lifetime? It sounded good, so we gave it legs.
Four finish lines later, our annual Race for the Rockies team giveaway to TransRockies™ Run, aka “Summer Camp for Big Kids,” has become one of our favorite events of the year. It’s proved a great way to give back to the trail and ultrarunning community and share its fun and inspiring stories.
Nominations to win a team spot at the 13th annual TransRockies™ Run (August 13-18, 2019) are now open! We’re also excited to be joined by Kahtoola athlete and special guest Rob Krar, who will help us select a winning team in May 2019.
