There will be a limit to the number of teams that will be able to choose the non-profit volunteer option this year. Non-profit groups have understandably been affected by the pandemic too. Once our capacity is reached, teams will be required to provide volunteers. We will have a waiting list but no promises can be made.
"... it was the most fun I've ever had while running." John Meyer, Denver Post
Thanks for a wonderful experience. This was by far better than Ragnar Colorado and I would love to do this again next year!
CK Commerce City, CO
Colorado is home to some of the most inspiring landscapes in the country. With mountains that reach to the sky, rushing rivers, and starry nights like you’ve never seen, the Centennial state is a runner’s dream – and you have the chance to experience it like you never have before!
The Wild West Relay starts in the foothills of beautiful Fort Collins before sending runners deep into the heart of the Rocky Mountains. This scenic and remote course takes athletes over two mountain passes and through three national forests before reaching the finish line in the idyllic ski town of Steamboat Springs. Along the way you’ll pass picture perfect mountain communities, working ranches, and the jaw-dropping vistas that typify the American west. You’ll run on dirt roads and under starry skies and when you and your team cross the finish line at the Steamboat Springs ski resort, you’ll be rewarded with a cold beer and an even colder dip in the Yampa River that winds its way right through town.
FINISH LINE MOVED DUE TO STEAMBOAT RESORT CONSTRUCTION
Due to major construction at the Gondola Plaza at the Steamboat Resort, events are unable to finish there this summer. The Resort offered us a parking lot to finish at, but that didn't sound very appealing. So the finish will return to the original, and where the finish was for years, at the Steamboat Springs Middle School for this year.
