GOLD RUN RUSH June 22, 2022
Greetings and welcome to 2022 Summit Mt. Challenge Series and Race #2, the Gold Run Rush.
Registration is LIVE!
All race details and information can be found HERE!
But first, here’s some news.
The Summit Mt. Challenge Series is now under the operation of the Town of Breckenridge.
Yes, you read that correctly.
The Breckenridge Recreation Department, and their very capable staff, have assumed ownership and control of this iconic series.
Maverick Sports will be on hand for at least 5 years to provide Timing, Results, Institutional Knowledge and Support.
In other words, the series will look, feel, sound and ride the same way it always has; Awesomely!
In fact, if you hadn’t read this, or noticed that registration was via the Town, you might not even notice the change.
And that’s exactly what we want!
From the Maverick Sports crew we thank each and every one of you for being such great participants over the years. It has truly been an honor to produce this series for 20 years.
So, here’s a salute to 2022 and the new operator of the Summit Mt. Challenge!
