Details: Relays are probably the best way to enjoy an athletic experience with a team. Of course, having the event in northern Colorado and southern Wyoming makes it even better. The event covers 36 legs spanning almost 195 miles in about 24 hours. The running part of the race is easy; it's the breathtaking scenery and natural beauty of the area that will be hard to forget. The relay starts at 5,007 feet and eventually reaches 10,290 feet after crossing two major passes, including the Continental Divide.
