And if you canʼt make it to Colorado,
join us in spirit with a Virtual Run
In memory of Capt. William “Pyro” DuBois who died defending our country when his F16 crashed in the Middle East on 12/01/14. All proceeds from the race go to Pyro’s Wings Scholarship which provides financial support to future fighter pilots. The donations create a longstanding legacy for Capt. DuBois and help aspiring Air Force ROTC Cadets fulfill their dreams of becoming an aviator. There will be a barbecue following the race and participants will receive a mug to fill with a beverage of their choice. Be aware that this trail run is at an elevation of 9,000+ ft., and it is a rigorous trail riddled with roots, rocks, and uneven terrain!!!!
Wear your Pyro t-shirt or order one here.

Come help us celebrate a life well lived!
