September 9, 2010, Beaver Creek, CO- After six days, 117 miles and more than 25,000 feet of climbing, the 2010 GORE-TEX ® TransRockies Run came to a finish on Friday, August 27th, in Beaver Creek, Colorado.

They share the trails, spectacular scenery, great food, and customer service that all leads to the most amazing "vacation" they have ever experienced."
