Rally Point Notes:

18 different trails are on the itinerary this year as well as a visit to Animas Forks, CO! For those brave enough to join, we will also be running Black Bear Pass AT NIGHT!!!



In addition to the sightseeing along the trails, we’ll hang out in Telluride and ride the Gondola into Mountain Village. We’ll swing down to Silverton and take a tour of the Old Hundred Gold Mine, a 1 hour tour starting with a 1/3 mile rail-cart ride into a mine drift inside Galena Mountain where we’ll walk thru the mine and see demos of the equipment the miners once used. We’ll visit the Ouray County Museum and see artifacts of the rich mining history and how the town came into existence, and relax at the Ouray Hot Springs, which is a PERFECT mid-week intermission from trail-running! There are many other cool, fun things to do and see as well as cool places to eat and shop! We’ll try to do a little bit of everything!
