The Flyathlon is a unique race event that integrates three of the West's greatest activities; trail running, fly-fishing, and craft beer. The premise is simple... run. fish. beer. During an official event, your score is determined as the time it takes you to run (with all of your fishing equipment on your back) through the entire course, adjusted by a “fish factor” based on what you caught during your run. Both the night before and after the race, fine local craft beer is served.
The 1st Annual Lake Fork Flyathlon is a fundraising event for coldwater conservation projects, with a focus on native trout. Our 2016 501(c)(3) partner for this event is Colorado Trout Unlimited (www.coloradotu.org).
