TRR logo no GORE(1)TransRockies Run
TRR is a multi-day point-to-point trail running race which allows athletes to access and traverse wild and fantastic scenery, while building camaraderie, overcoming adversity and sharing a singular adventure.
There are 3 day and 6 options for single runners, or teams of two. The races have been described as “summer camp for adults”, a pretty accurate description from my own experience. You can also benefit from a discount code for either 3 day or 6 day races – when you enter, use eta100 for $100 off a RUN6 entry, and eta50 for $50 off a RUN3 entry.
