    Looks like a challenge but good time.

  2. Debra Scott says:

    I participated in Run3 several years ago and as a Michigan flatlander, was unprepared for the climbing. I finished near the very end every day. I have unfinished business now that I know what I would be up against I want to go back and make a better showing!

  3. Hope Hyatt says:

    I’ve looked at doing this race before. I’ve completed some 100 milers and feel like this is the next level of challenge for me to take on. I’d love to do a multi-day race and see a new area I haven’t been to before! And hopefully bring a friend or two along!

  4. Nicole Smyth says:

    It is my bucket list dream to come from Australia to run the TransRockies to raise awareness and demonstrate how running can reduce the symptoms of depression and mental health disorders and at the same time run through the most amazing scenery in such a beautiful state.

  5. Sharon Campbell says:

    I have watched this every day it was running this year. Summer camp for big kids in the middle of an Australian summer would be fantastic. Cresting those hills, the camaraderie of tent city, all looks amazing!

    Mountain running challenge- here I come!

    I love the Rockies and all they offer. Those high peaks leave almost as breathless as the views. My wife and I have hiked several and she even crewed me for my first ultra and an attempted 100 out there. We love that area like it’s our own backyard. It also helped lead us to marriage knowing we could count on each other when it got tough. Love it there!

  32. Falana says:

    It would be easier to say why I DONT want to run this race…wait there are NO reasons why I wouldn’t run!!! Pick me!!!

    I want to have fun with awesome people. Period.

  34. Lucas Piontkowski says:

    Opportunity of a lifetime! As runners we all have different reasons why we do what we do… an event like this brings together all of those reasons for me and so many others. Pushing your limits, camaraderie, overcoming limitation, feeling free, proving you can, health and fitness, mental and emotional strength and wellbeing… bringing together so many amazing people for an event like this to share our love of running and adventure is not just an opportunity of a lifetime, but a life changing experience… that’s something I WANT to be a part of. Don’t you?

  35. Georgia O’Carolan says:

    I have fallen in love with the Rockies and am so amped to have a red blood cell count now that can manage that crazy altitude! I’ve been pushing endurance and next year wanna do a 100km, 100mile and multi day and Transrockies would be such a crazily amazing event to do that with!

    Rockies runners are the best gang of runners so much love for the community and the people who put on these great events! 💖

  36. Tina Garstad says:

    I have wanted to run this race for years!! The challenge, the hurt, the knowing that the impossible is possible, is definitely appealing. And, being surrounded by so many damn inspirational peeps sounds AMAZiNG!!

  37. Allison Cromwell says:

    I have been wanting to do this run for a while now, but life always gets in the way! I would love to run this race for 1.) the gorgeous scenery but more importantly, 2.) to run & play in the mountains with like minded people who appreciate and respect Mother Nature

  38. Leanne says:

    I would love to run the trails with like minded and crazy people like myself… living each day to it fullest with a cold beer to wash it down at the end… mmmm yer.

  39. Sierra DeGroff says:

    It would be super fun to spend more time adventuring the Rockies doing a trail dance party with friends!

  40. Terry says:

    I’ve always wanted to do transrockies, it looks like a blast!

    Transrockies would be an amazing event to add to my training plan next summer…perhaps in preparation for a first 100 miler. 🙂

    The community, the sceneries and the challenge.

  43. Alissa R Keith says:

    Because nothing is more fun than an adventure in the mountains with friends!

  44. Vicki Trees says:

    I’ve been to the Denver airport many times but have never set foot on a CO trail. I need a Colorado trail adventure!

  45. Catriona Forrest says:

    I need to redeem myself after crashing and burning in 2018!! I’d better start training now….

  46. Jeff Hart says:

    All my friends are doing it and I feel left out! Real problems!

  47. Diana Elliott says:

    I’d love to head to the US from Australia for the Transrockies Summer Camp for Big Kids – hot showers, gourmet meals, tents put up, smores by the fire and FREE BEER! Sounds like an Adventure of a Lifetime!

  48. Lorena Gutierrez says:

    Just enjoying mother nature with those amazing views. Definitely would love it!

  51. Scott Snell says:

    The Transrockies run has been on my to do list for a few years now. I’ve been wanting to give a stage race a shot and I’d love to make next year the year to do it. Plus, who doesn’t want to go run trails in Colorado for a few days?

  52. Tim Cigelske says:

    I’d like to enter because beer tastes better after a trans rocky run

  53. Marcel says:

    My friends and trail running buddies Jess and Blake ran in Trans Rockies in 2018 and came away with one of the greatest and most powerful experiences of a lifetime of running. I would love to be a part of this community in motion of fun-loving trail runners and honor the amazing Colorado terrain it covers.

  54. Todd Wiggins says:

    Ran my first stage race this year (13, 26, 13 mile trail race in Tennessee) and loved the camaraderie that comes with running and camping with friends and with strangers that become your friends over those days. I enjoyed the challenge of running on tired legs while spreading out the ultra distance over multiple days. I’ve been trying to coordinate a group to take on the 6-day TransRockies run but with a Zion Traverse in the works for Fall, I’m having trouble getting commitments. We just completed a R2R2R a few weeks back and I’m looking at the next challenge and would love to make some new friends in Colorado.

  55. Laura Allred says:

    This has been on my bucket list for a few years now. I never believed I could really do an event like this but I’ve become an avid ultra runner and even ran 136 miles across Utah in May to raise funds for MS and realized you can do anything you put your minds to. This run would be so beautiful, so challenging, so rewarding. All of the things I look for in an adventure! 🙂

  56. Jameelah Abdul Rahim Mujaahid says:

    I know it will be a blast running.
