The Adventure Xstream Race Series returns to Glenwood Springs this Saturday, with 12-hour and sprint race course options.

Racers will mountain bike, kayak, trail run, rappel, trek through a cave and navigate an option river boarding section during the course.

Registration for the Glenwood Springs AXS race is now open at http://www.GravityPlay.com.

Local volunteers are needed for the race as well. Contact the organizers via the website http://www.GravityPlay.com if interested.
