On September 24th, I will be participating in the Lake Fork Flyathlon in Gunnison Colorado. This event is a 10 mile out and back run, with fishing equipment; followed by craft beer at the finish line (Dad would have loved this!). My fundraising for this event will help support projects that both Colorado Trout Unlimited and the Western Native Trout Initiative in the Lake Fork drainage to preserve native trout habitats as well as the surrounding trails and access points.
Although I have set a goal at $750 for this event, it is my hope that we can all come together, spread the word so that we can raise over $1000 for this cause.
I don’t anticipate finishing this race too quickly (maybe not at all if the fish are hitting) as I know I may be mesmerized by the sheer beauty of the area.
I hope you will consider helping me with this cause to preserve our Colorado outdoor areas.
