RunColorado Pagosa Peak Trail Series begins in June

RunColorado Pagosa Peak Trail Series event No. 1 is just a month away.

These events are the primary fund-raisers for the GECKO Scholarship fund. (already committing more than $7,000 to get local kids and students unplugged off the couch and outside).

As fellow citizens, we feel it is important for you to know about these events. We are bringing tourists to town and, if nothing else, we want you to know who these people are when they arrive and visit Pagosa Springs.

Our June 6 Turkey Track Trail marathon and half marathon is attracting participants from around the country and around the state.

We are always in need of volunteers. If you would like the opportunity be involved, we could use your support. You could help with welcoming and registration, put a group together to help at a race aid station (giving out treats and drinks), be a course marshal or help with scoring and timing.
