Meet our last man standing, Vincent Barrientos!
He came down from San Francisco, willing to run into Monday. Lots of people make bold claims but this badass, whose spirit animal is a Mexican street dog, was resilient. Vincent had no crew, outside of the occasional spectator willing to help him make a sandwich. He was regularly seen fueling on gummy worms and pop tarts. Vincent would finish each loop with about 4-8 minutes of rest between, just enough time to fuel but not enough time to get stiff. He earned a golden coin into Big’s Backyard, $400, a new pair of La Sportiva shoes, and endless bragging rights. Not many people can say they’ve run 141 miles. We are really proud of you, Vincent. Can’t wait to cheer you on at Big’s. #thegamerace

Just three days away from the race with no end.
Keep up with how the racers are doing and how they are answering these crazy questions by following us on Facebook and Instagram @spectrumtrail. Wouldn’t be a proper game without a deck of cards.

We've got a little down time until our next race (The Game on April 17th), but that doesn't mean we aren't still training hard and throwing down some long trail runs together. And it gets us thinking...how long could you run if there was no end in sight...if the race didn't have a defined finish? The Game doesn't require speed, just resilience. How well are you at turning those voices in your head off? The ones that say you can't do it, when your body says otherwise. Come see: SpectrumTrailRacing.com AzulOx Visuals, LLC

In light of recent storms that left Lost Maples devastated, which forced us to cancel the Aurora race, Spectrum directors and racers are donating $1,200 to the Friends of Lost Maples. We still plan to give them all the man power we can to fix those trails, but right now this is what they need most.

Last weekend's madness has highlighted something we always knew to be true: our racing community is made up of the biggest-hearted trail blazers. We feel lucky to be part of this community, every day.

AURORA CANCELLATION + OPTIONS

Aurora racers, check your inbox. Lost Maples State Park is closed through Tuesday due to extensive damage from the storms. As a result, Aurora will not be able to happen. We emailed you the details of our cancelled race and your options (full deferral, partial refund, or donation).

For now, stay safe and take care of each other. Reach out if we can help!

Remember those mountains in west Texas? The ones we've raced through for the past 5 years...until last year, when everything was turned upside down.

Each year, we count down the days (usually 365 of them), but now we have two years worth of counting down. To say we have missed our Sky Island family would be an understatement. We crave that feeling of dry, thin air, that endless view from each crested peak, and that perfect mix of competition, freedom, and sheer joy.

Sky Islanders, 2021 is our year to reunite. And believe me, this year is going to top anything you've ever seen before. Because #nothingelsematters.

Registration opens March 1st @ noon (February 27th @ noon for anyone who has raced/volunteered Sky Island 2019 or 2020).

That’s a wrap for Goodwater 2021! The best picture to represent this race isn’t going to be one of your standard finish line high fives. And a shot of the trail that overlooks the lake, though beautiful, wouldn’t be the single shot we’d choose. No...this race was all about love and support.
We had two engagements. Yes, TWO! We had a couple who had to make a tough call and remove her from the course for health concerns. We had a runner whose kid’s virtually ran the final stretch with her. We had a couple who both ran the double marathon. He finished first overall and she finished last, with arguably one of the most resilient efforts of any racer we’ve seen.
And we have two race directors who get to cuddle up and remember one of the best races we’ve ever hosted. More later, but for now: keep loving. #goodwaterrace

We have a little race coming up. And every year, we do something crazy to encourage more women to go after the double-marathon. Not once, but TWICE around Lake Georgetown. You'll see the sun rise and the sun set. You'll be tired as hell, but you'll go home feeling like a champion.

This year, we are going to give the next 5 women to sign up for the Goodwater Double Marathon on January 30th a FREE pair of La Sportiva Shoes ($140ish value). We will also help you craft a long run schedule between now and then to make sure you are ready!

Ladies, you're stronger than you think. Let's do this.

The last day : SPECTRUM TRIBE CHALLENGE : love yourself first! I’ll admit that there was a lot of deliberation as to how we should end this month of challenges. So many of you have given us time and space in your life. Together, we’ve gained strength, organized our lives, acknowledged our past and those we love, shared our favorites, and discovered we are capable of anything when we chip away at it day by day. So, how do we conclude such a beautiful journey? To approve of yourself. To love yourself. We are challenging you to write a love note to yourself...to put a note on your bathroom mirror that reminds you how amazing you are...to take a selfie and see strength instead of weakness...to complete the sentence “I love myself because _____.” Through this entire month, we’ve seen the most beautiful, strong, and driven people join together. Thank you, for inspiring us. We love you, Spectrum Tribe! #spectrumtribechallenge

Day # 28 : SPECTRUM TRIBE CHALLENGE : set goals! We only have two days left in this challenge! If we don’t wrap it up with a way to grow and learn from this experience, then we’ve missed a valuable opportunity. So, set aside some time today to dig deep and jot down some goals. But that’s not enough. You’re going to need two more things: a plan and a way to be held accountable. If it’s a race you’re gunning for, make a training plan and tell your running partner what your plan is for reaching that goal. Set a timeline for when you’ll achieve it. It’s time to jot down ideas that scare you, that make you feel it in your gut, that rip you out of bed, even on the cold, wet mornings. Chase down your dreams. If not now, when? #spectrumtribechallenge

Day # 27 : SPECTRUM TRIBE CHALLENGE : organize! This is your chance to find that one space in your life that needs a little attention. Maybe it’s your glove compartment, your medicine cabinet, or your desk. Take the time to go through it. Be willing to let go of anything that isn’t serving you well. Find a way to make that space bring you joy. Brighten it, clean it, and then show us your before and after picture. Maybe you’ll even be inspired to clean the whole cluttered closet or to detox the entire fridge. You’ll thank us afterwards! #spectrumtribechallenge

Trash your own state if that is what you like to do, but don't come to our beautiful state & leave it like this. You suck!
Come back to Colorado and clean up your trash.... Trash your own state.....
Is the Aurora 10/20/30 still happening given the current power loss, weather and lack of fuel situation across the state?
I was out running today and took a few photos of some of the runners.
I love this version of myself. #spectrumtribechallenge
Gonna start saving cash and stacking miles. I want to run my first marathon in Arizona in 2021. Two first time experiences. Really want to high five one of those big ass cactus and immediately regret that decision #spectrumtribechallenge
