LOCAL SPORTS BRIEFS | PostIndependent.com



Run or walk along stunning mountain trails through fragrant wildflowers, hopping streams, while honoring a fallen hero.

The 3.5K is a very beginner/family friendly trail, while the 7.7K offers more terrain and challenge, but the 13K Double Down is only for very experienced, fit trail runners as there is a steep 1,000-foot change of elevation.

After the run is a barbecue for all. All the proceeds go to the Pyro’s Wing scholarship fund for future fighter pilots and military families. This event also honors Captain William “Pyro” DuBois, who lost his life when his F-16 crashed in Jordan defending our freedom. You can register for the run at: https://www.raceentry.com/races/pyros-push-it-up-trail-run/2017/register. For any questions contact Donna at pyrostrailrun@gmail.com or 970-876-2324.
