The Amazing Race in Eagle Ranch

Saturday, September 19, 2020

2:00pm start time at Colors Coffee Roasters

A casual, open-to-all, social, semi-competitive treasure hunt, in and around Eagle Ranch taking about 2 hours with 10 Pit Stops.

Maximum 20 Teams, of 2-6 people (max.) Families (parents and kids) and costumes encouraged. First come first served! REGISTER NOW (we are filling up fast! Teams with any member under 13 must include an adult (18 or older).

Human-powered transport ONLY – bikes and scooters (not electric), skate boards, … Shanks’ pony (= your feet!)

Start time 2:00pm at Color Coffee Roasters – staggered start, 2 minutes between teams.  Teams must arrive 30 minutes before their start time (to be advised).

The course is approximately 5 miles around Eagle Ranch mostly on bike paths. With 5-10 minutes at each Pit Stop it should take between 1 hour 45 minutes and 2 hours 15 minutes to complete.

Teams will solve Clues that lead to each of 10 Pit Stops where they will complete ‘challenges’ before solving the next Clue and moving to the next Pit Stop. Clues will be simple, poetic and engaging, but one or two will be more cryptic.

Teams will take a photo and text it to Amazing Race HQ, to confirm successful completion of each Challenge.

Points will be awarded for each Challenge completed, for finishing under 2 hours, for creativity (in the photos taken) and for having a young team member (we don’t want the fast youngsters to have an unfair advantage!)

Finish at Color Coffee with beverages and music.

Awards for 1st, 2nd, 3rd and best team costumes.

Branded buffs (neck gaiter – see it?!) will be provided for each team member and volunteer.

Entry Fee – $25 per team (non-refundable), payable to/at Color Coffee Roasters. Payment secures your place!

Mountain Rats Ultra Race

September 19, 2020

Eagle, Colorado

We’re excited to bring the 2020 Mountain RATS Festival to Eagle, CO. We are grateful to have this chance to celebrate the Eagle outdoor community. We will have a full list of protocols and rules to make this event go off in a triumphant and respectful manner. As the pandemic continues to evolve, there is a strong chance some of these protocols will too.  We promise to communicate any changes via email, social media and our website – but it is ultimately your responsibility to read, understand and follow the full list.

This is a friendly community based event. Politics has no place here in relation to these rules. Our ability to hold these races is contingent on following these safety rules put into place. If you do not wish to abide by the rules you will be asked to leave the venue. This is a chance for all of us to get off social media, enjoy the mountains and challenge ourselves. We can accomplish this if we’re able to ensure everyone is following county health guidelines.

Here is a summary of the main points:

  • ALL participants (runners & volunteers) are required to:
    • Sign a COVID-specific waiver
    • Wear a mask at all times, except when 1) running 2) eating/drinking
  • Limited Menu & Service at Aid Stations
  • Crew and Spectators Strongly Discouraged
  • Modified Awards Ceremony
  • Wave Starts
