TransRockies Run is a trail running stage race also known as “Summer Camp for Big Kids”! 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. At the end of each stage, runners gather in camp to recover, socialize and celebrate. Fully supported with tents, luggage service, mobile shower truck, catered meals and massage. TransRockies Run is a running vacation where you will make memories and friendships that last a lifetime. With a capacity of only 350 runners, the event sells out every year!
This August First Descents will be fielding a team of brave runners to take on the 22,500 ft of elevation gain (jello legs anyone?) over 120 miles, all in the name of supporting outdoor adventures for young adults impacted by cancer and other serious health conditions!
