TransRockies Run is a trail running stage race also known as “Summer Camp for Big Kids”! Normally a six-day stage race traversing the continental divide between Buena Vista and Beaver Creek, the route covers 120 miles through the spectacular Colorado Rockies with stunning fourteener views all along the route. This year due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, you’ll have 2 weeks to run/walk/crawl the 120 grueling miles to earn a coveted TRR Belt Buckle!
This August First Descents will be fielding a team of runners to take on the virtual run challenge all in the name of supporting FREE outdoor adventures for frontline healthcare workers and young adults impacted by cancer and other serious health conditions!
