Vail Mountain race attracts 150 runners

The annual 10K at 10,000 feet running race was a 10K at 8,000 feet instead this year, but it still attracted more than 100 participants. A 5K version of the event also saw dozens of competitors.

Organizers used a staggered start format this year in an effort to keep people from being in the same area at the same time, but the prolonged start waves also prevented organizers from utilizing the gondola to access the traditional start/finish area atop Vail Mountain. While runners still took to Vail Mountain for the annual event, this year they ran from Vail to Lionshead before finishing in Golden Peak.

Cameron Wolfe, winner of the men’s 19 & Under division, said the new format felt like a safe way of racing.

“I’m just happy the race happened at all,” Wolfe said. “Considering the situation, I don’t think it could have been run much better.”

Wolfe, a Vail Mountain School graduate who now attends Dartmouth Academy, is hoping to stay in shape over the summer in case he is able to return to cross country ski racing next year at Dartmouth. Amid the pandemic, that’s still up in the air, he said. The race atmosphere helped him “find that extra gear and dig a little bit deeper, which is super useful for racing and in general, for mental health and that kind of thing.”
