Boneyard Boogie running race coming back to Eagle
Vail, CO Colorado
EAGLE – Runners are already training for the Dusty Boot’s second annual Boneyard Boogie, scheduled for 9 a.m., May 15. More than 80 runners competed last year.
New this year, runners are competing to break the course record and win some cash. East West Resorts is donating a cash purse – $200 each – for the male and female course record breakers. Course record holders are Josh Smith, 41:52, and Anita Ortiz, 47:25.
Registration and bib pick-up will be open from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. at the Eagle Valley Middle School soccer field on the morning of the race. This is a point to point run with a one mile distance between start and finish. Runners are encouraged to park at the Eagle Pool and take a warm-up run to the Eagle Valley Middle School for the start of the race. Parking will also be available at Eagle Valley Middle School near the start. AmericInn has kindly offered to provide shuttle service to race participants from the pool to the trailhead. For more information please call 970-328-2172.
Register before May 14 for only $25; race day registration will be $30. Registration locations include Eagle Ranch Fitness Club, Gypsum Recreation Center, Everyday Outfitters, Westin Riverfront, and http://www.active.com.
A new sponsor this year, Darn Tough Socks will be providing fashionable footwear for the first 100 darn tough finishers. Dusty Boot will once again host the post race party with food, drinks and prizes. Everyday Outfitters is donating Keen shoes for a raffle – racers making it out of the Boneyard alive will be entered in the raffle.
Land Designs by Ellison employees cleaned up the trailhead of the Boneyard in Eagle and removed a rusted out water heater and 5 bags of trash. Further up the trail – where the single track starts – the volunteers removed an old abandoned truck topper that was about 50 feet down in a ravine and had to be hoisted out.
