Uncle Clyde's Run And Slide

Saturday, Mar 2, 2019 at 10:00am

The tubing hill (Columbine area)
Durango, CO 81301

Get ready for the whackiest race ever in Durango!  It’s on the tubing hill.  Run up… tube down.  Repeat!
Most laps wins!
Oh, and it’s a relay race

Team up with your best buddy for this tag-team style race.  We will have male, female, and coed divisions for adult teams, as well as race categories for kids and parent/child teams.  Teams must consist of two people in order to compete, but we will also allow three-person teams (like mom plus two kids) if you are just out for fun, not prizes and glory.

This event is limited to just 30 teams per heat, so sign up quick!

Just $25 per team.

We provide the tubes.  No need to bring your own.

And since it’s at Purgatory Resort, you know we will turn this thing into a party.  We’ll be spinning tunes while you race,  high-fiving you each time you pass through the transition area, cooking S’mores for your finish line snacks, and giving out cool prizes.

Feel free to wear a costume.  (Yeah, it’s that kind of race.)

Two Heats:
We have a 60-minute heat beginning at 10am and a 90-minute heat at 11am.  The 60-minute heat is recommended for kids, families, and less competitive folks.  The 90-minute heat is recommended for anyone who wants the full suffer-fest.

10am - 60-minute race  
11am - 90-minute race

We will award prizes to winning teams in each race category, as well as prizes for costumes, team spirit, and best cheering section.
