THE STORY:

It started as a way to be a part of something new and fun and now well I am 'hooked'. Trail running and fly fishing is a blast, and oh yea there will be beer ... It is a great cause and it is something that is challenging and I hope that you will be a part of this newest Colorado grow Flyathlon. We are doing some great things with the money raised money for native fish - in particular the trout species. For those of you that donate I will place you into a drawing. One ticket for every $10 you donate. The winner will receive a full day fly fishing lessons, all gear needed along with food and beer. If I am able to exceed my goal of $1,000 this year I will turn this into an overnight camping trip on a local lake about 1.50 hours from Denver that is not only stocked with lunkers, but a supreme location that you will love! The more money you give the greater your chances of winning!! Here's The Story: The Rocky Mountain Flyathlon is an event series that combines trail running, fly fishing, and the celebration of craft beer, all to raise money for native trout education and restoration projects around the Western U.S. Life is more than just trail running, fly fishing, and craft beer. Through the Rocky Mountain Flyathlon and our parent 501(c)(3) organization Running Rivers, we are raising money to protect the very streams that we fish and the trails that we run. In the three years that we have been holding Flyathlon events, we have raised more than $65,000 for on-the-ground restoration and education projects through our conservation partners Colorado Trout Unlimited and the Western Native Trout Initiative Here are the course details this year: When: August 11th-13th, 2017 Where: Saguache, CO Number of Participants: 60 Course Map and Elevation Profile: Details about the Middle Creek Flyathlon course can be found here https://www.trailrunproject.com/trail/7019155 at the Trail Run Project. Details: Now in its fourth year in the Middle Creek watershed, this event is our flagship race. As many of you know, the purpose of the Flyathlon is to get people out onto creeks that they wouldn’t ordinarily fish to have fun and raise money for native fish-related projects. There are two course options, the short course (~7 miles) and the long course (~12 miles, featuring WTF Hill). Check this link out for more details and articles about this event : http://flyathlon.com/media/ What projects are we working on? Funds raised through the Flyathlon are currently being used for projects in the San Luis Valley, as well as for cold-water conservation around the state of Colorado.
