Why: The goal of the event is to incorporate an athletic event into the Fourth of July festivities. An athletic event seems to be the only thing missing from the fabulous weekend of festivities in Telluride. The event is put on by the Telluride Foundation and any proceeds from the event will benefit the Telluride Foundation and the Telluride Volunteer Fire Department.
Awards: podium and breakfast will be held at Oak about 10a.m. Medals will be awarded to top three athletes in each category. Prizes will be announced in June.
