2010 Aid Station Challenge Results
Congratulations to Manitou Springs at Bobs Road who was the $2,250 Challenge winner this year. They had the runners running through Candy Land. They also won an auto spot in the 2011 Challenge.
2nd place and $1,500 went to Peyton at the Incline Overlook.
This is one of the most popular aspects of the Barr Trail Mountain Race. All the aid stations on the course are staffed by high school cross country and track teams.
At the finish line runners vote for their favorite aid station with the winning school getting the most money for their schools running program and an automatic spot in the following years challenge. Second through 5th will be awarded cash for their programs as well. In all $6,000 is awarded to the five schools bringing the 10 year total to $60,000!
In 30 years of running and racing Iíve never seen a race able
to make these kinds of contributions to the local running
community. In this case future running community.
Coach Gary Weston and the Liberty H.S. Cross Country Teams
With more than 80 gallons of water at each station, and several stations also stocking up to 30 gallons of Gatorade, we want to thank Gatorade for providing us with a ton of coolers and cups and the drinks to go in them!
