The Flyathlon is a new multi-sport event that integrates three activities: trailrunning, fly fishing, and craft beer. The primary mission of this event is to raise money for native trout related projects in Colorado to protect our spectacular trails and waters as well as a state fish species of special concern, the Rio Grande cutthroat trout. The money raised also invests meaningfully in our local mountain towns and communities. A significant percentage of funds raised through each Rocky Mountain Flyathlon event is specifically targeted towards river and trail improvement projects within the watershed in which the individual event itself is held.
