It is with great regret that we have postponed the 2019 Romp In the Rocks, secondary to very low registration numbers. We do intend to reschedule for sometime in 2020, will keep you posted or check back here for details. Enjoy your fall!
Located at Hartman Rocks Recreation Area in Gunnison, Colorado, the ROMP in the Rocks Ride + Run races will be timed lap events for solo-ists, duos, or teams wishing to test their stamina for 10 hours of riding, running or both on some of the best singletrack that Gunnison Valley has to offer. REGISTRATION CLOSES THURSDAY, OCT 3 at MIDNIGHT.
The races will start and finish at the base area of Hartman Rocks. The mountain bike RIDE course will be about 12.7 miles in length, with 2,001 ft of elevation gain. The RUN course will be about 5.25 miles with 1,100 ft of elevation gain. Both will feature some technical singletrack and lots of flowy sections and downhills. The run course also contains about 2k of elevation gain and is open to all levels and all adventurers; however this is not a course to be taken lightly. Please be sure you are well equipped, well-trained and very well prepared for all types of weather. There will be no aid stations, so please come prepared with water, food and any other types of self support!
ROMP in the Rocks directly benefits the gOgirls and gOguys programs under the gO Initiative umbrella. All proceeds for this race will help the gO Initiative fulfill its mission by keeping kids and adults healthy and active physically and mentally.
All racers (ride + run) get a chance to win a pair of ROMP Skis with entry!
There will be a “10 minutes in the rocks” kid’s bike race during the afternoon – more info to come.
