Guts & Glory Adventure Race September 4, 2021

Sitting at 7,500 ft in the southernmost part of the Rocky Mountains, Glorieta Adventure Camp will play host to this year’s Guts & Glory Adventure Race. Racers will be treated to thousands of acres of aspen stands and thick pine forests that traverse between the high peaks, rugged granite canyons and hidden, high-mountain meadows.  The Camp has over 20+ miles of mountain biking trails, tons of elevation, a waterfront that will make you miss being a kid and awesome special test activities. The race will happen rain, sleet, or shine, so be prepared for any type of weather. Choose the sprint race or the 16 hour ‘Extreme’ option. Too Cool Racing is proud to have Guts & Glory as part of The RMAS ( The Rocky Mountain Adventure Series)
