2017 EVENTS

Upslope shooting range

1st Annual Miners Creek Flyathlon

When: June 16th-18th, 2017
Where: Creede, CO
Number of Participants:  40 maximum
Fishing Difficulty: MODERATE
Running Difficulty: MODERATE
Registration Website:  http://www.imathlete.com/events/MinersCreekFlyathlon
Details:  In its first year, the Miners Creek is the frontier Flyathlon race for 2017.  Partnering with an established race series, the Runoff Runoff, the race is approximately 7.5 miles in some very fishy water.  The wrinkle is that as the partner race hints it, June is runoff, and you may need your high water fishing skills to hook up with the fish in Miners Creek.  

Spaces still available!

4th Annual Middle Creek Flyathlon
When: August 11th-13th, 2017
Where: Saguache, CO
Number of Participants:  60
Fishing Difficulty: EASY
Running Difficulty: MODERATE
Course Map and Elevation Profile:  Details about the Middle Creek Flyathlon course can be found here at the Trail Run Project.
Registration Website:  SOLD OUT
Details:  Now in its fourth year in the Middle Creek watershed, this event is our flagship race.  As many of you know, the purpose of the Flyathlon is to get people out onto creeks that they wouldn’t ordinarily fish to have fun and raise money for native fish-related projects.  There are two course options, the short course (~7 miles) and the long course (~12 miles, featuring WTF Hill). 

This event is now full.  Please consider registering for one of our other events, as they are equally bad ass.

Details:  After an awesome inaugural event in 2016, we are bringing this event back for 2017.  As many of you experienced in 2016, the weather is unpredictable, the fishing is challenging, and the after-party is bad ass.  Looking forward to seeing our die hard flyathletes at this event!
