You Should Run Tushars: A Photo Essay

I ran the Tushars 70k this weekend, and can’t stop thinking about it.

I keep describing it as the “Hardrock for everyone else”. It has the breathtaking beauty I’ve only ever found in Southwest Colorado, without having to run 100 miles or go through a lottery to experience it.

The 70k was a perfect distance for me, seeing a full day of the mountains and finishing before it got too tough. Lauren did the marathon, and the half marathon is something a beginner could tackle with some patience.

My race went well, starting off easy and staying steady all day before taking the lead at mile 30 and cruising to the finish. But I don’t want to talk about my race. I want to convince you to do it yourself next year.

I spent probably 20–30 minutes taking pictures throughout the day. Just as I’d put my camera away I’d turn another corner and take it out again. So do me (and you) a favor right now. Put Tushars on your calendar for next year right now, then share my journey by scrolling below.
