Yes, it’s a race. But the six days of running through high-alpine deserts, over craggy peaks, and amid wildflower meadows and forests filled with dappled light is also a fully supported running adventure. Historically organized as a team event, this year marks the first time solo participants are welcome to cover 120 miles and 20,000 feet of elevation gain through the Colorado Rockies, enjoying catered meals, gear transport, hot showers and a tent city for every stage.
