I've decided to take on a new goal- this September I will be participating in the Lake Fork Flyathlon near Gunnison, CO. 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). 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. The 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. As much as it is a fun weekend getaway, the money raised through the event will be put toward conservation of cold-water fish species. Any donations you are willing to give will be put toward a great cause!
