This will be our first year in Mesa County Colorado for a little bit of fun among the mesas. With elevations ranging between 8,000 and 9,200 feet, this race is a good candidate for newer racers to the sport. The location is arid with trees, sand, and rocky outcrops. As is our specialty, this course is lovely and remote.
This race is full. If you missed registration because the race is full, please email the Race Director to be added to the Waiting List. Use the emailer below.
We are holding this race southeast of Grand Junction, Colorado in the National Forest.
Racers will navigate the unmarked course by hiking/trekking, mountain biking (dirt road/trail), and paddling (lake class I).
Racers must form teams of 1-4 in order to participate.
