A gluten-free and vegan buffet is also offered nightly. Participants are welcome to go through both food lines which includes items such as a quinoa/brown rice blend, peas, steamed potatoes, raw nuts, olives, pumpkin seeds, beans, beets, diced fresh fruit, assorted raw vegetables/salad greens, Colorado diced chicken, shredded cheese, hard-boiled eggs and cottage cheese.

New products and menu revisions were a collaborative effort between the Gourmet Cowboy Catering Team and a sports dietitian. * Items may vary based on availability and freshness.

Lunch is the responsibility of the participant, however, the TransRockies™ Run route is designed to finish in areas where food is readily available throughout the afternoon.
