Montrail Rises at Transrockies

In the open mixed division our own Gary Robbins and partner Tamsin Anstey won the Transrockies Stage Race. The race threw some loops but in the end they seemed to cruise to the win!

Also racing was our own Aaron Heidt with his partner Adam Campbell. They had a super hard fought battle and finished 3rd overall, and I believe winning 2 stages outright! Way to go guys!

Trans Rockies

This year from August 23-28, up to 150 teams of two will take on the Colorado Rockies for a running experience like no other. During the six days of the GORE-TEX™ TransRockies Run, runners from all over the world will run, eat and live together as they cover 113 miles of spectacular scenery, fully supported by a dedicated and professional Event Team who will look after all aspects of their food, accommodations and on-course support.

The GORE-TEX™ TransRockies Run course runs from Buena Vista to Beaver Creek, through the heart of the White River and San Isabel National Forests. The course includes a mix of singletrack and forest road with nearly 25,000 feet of elevation gain, reaching altitudes of over 12,500 ft.

Our Own Gary Robbins and Aaron Heidt will be racing. Gary is on a co-ed team and Aaron on an open male team.
