The Steamboat Springs Chamber of Commerce has announced its sponsorship of the first annual Run, Rabbit, Run, 50 mile mountain run, to be held September 15, 2007 at 6:00 am. The run will start at the Steamboat Springs ski basin and run up Mount Werner before proceeding along the continental divide to Rabbit Ears Peak and back to the ski basin.
“The Chamber is proud to be sponsoring what must be one of the most challenging and beautiful ultra marathon courses in North America,” said Matt Windt of the Chamber. “We believe this race will attract ultra marathon runners from all around the country.” The race is being organized by Betsy Kalmeyer and Fred Abramowitz, two veteran ultra marathoners.
