The mother of all mountain races

The Gore-Tex TransRockies Run is looking for runners. For this first-ever event, 150 teams of two will run, eat, and live together as they cover 125 miles Sept. 16-21. Based upon the popular Gore-Tex TransAlpine Run in Europe and the TransRockies/TransAlps mountain bike races, the TransRockies Run will feature a multi-day point-to-point format. The race will start at Beaver Creek Resort and go through Leadville to Aspen on a course of single-track trails and forest roads with nearly 25,000 feet of elevation gain. Each night, racers will be fed and housed in a tent city with showers and other amenities; the next morning, they run another stage until they complete seven stages. There are seven stages; a day's mileage ranges from 10 miles to 29 miles. To register or get more information, go to
