Scheduling an event like the TransRockies Run isn’t as easy as booking a vacation, we must accommodate other major running events, other tourism events along the route and, of course, the other events run by the TransRockies team during the summer.
We’d previously announced Aug 11-16, but a pre-existing event in Buena Vista created a situation where there was no hotel or campground availability on our required dates.With that in mind, we’ve pushed our dates back three days to August 14-19. By starting the event on a Tuesday, we’ll have better access to the limited number of hotel rooms in Buena Vista and we’ll also finish on a Sunday rather than a Friday which should make for a busier, more fun finishline celebration.
Even with the change, these will be our earliest dates ever and will offer families more time between the end of the race and the start of the school year. They’ll also give our team an extra few days to reorganize after our bike event in Canada before heading to Colorado.
Regardless of the dates, we’re looking forward to making our 2012 event the best GORE-TEX® TransRockies Run ever.
