Elk Run 5k: September 30
Emma Coburn, World Champion, Olympic Medalist and Crested Butte Native, is coming home this weekend for the inaugural Elk Run 5k. She created this race in hopes to continue to inspire others to go after their dreams as well as encourage physical fitness and health. Emma hopes to show others the beauty of Crested Butte and bring runners to her favorite training trails, so they too can enjoy what the Gunnison Valley has given her.
The Charity Beneficiary of the race is Living Journeys which is a non-profit organization that provides financial assistance, emotional support and enrichment programs to Gunnison Valley residents affected by cancer.
Although the race is full at this time, they are still looking for voluteers to help with various tasks. Whether you are racing or just happen to be in town, everyone is invited to join the post race festivities (band, drinks, food, and games). For additional information or to volunteer to help with the race, go to ElkRun5k.com.
