+++ Complete both Wild West Relay and Flaming Foliage Relay in Same Year and Earn a Colorado Mountain Goat Belt Buckle+++

NASA astronaut Steve Swanson competed in the Wild West Relay twice before with his team. But this year, his participation was much different - he is currently stationed on the International Space Station. That didn't stop this Steamboat Springs native. He ran as part of the Ultra 6x6 team 200 Miles, 20 Orbits, & 90 Shillings. He ran his six legs on a treadmill on the Space Station while coordinating with his team on the ground. Here is a video posted on YouTube by NASA of him running one of his legs.

Steve also sent this photo of a Wild West Relay hat from the Space Station.
