Virtually travel the length of Colorado from the “Welcome to Colorful Colorado” sign near Alamosa to the sign near Walden.

The Challenge

This year’s Great Colorado Sign Challenge will virtually travel a mountainous 325 miles from New Mexico to Wyoming. Starting from the “Welcome to Colorful Colorado” sign on US-285 near Alamosa, we will travel north past Salida and Buena Vista before heading into Fairplay. Here, we will turn onto CO-9 and head over Hoosier Pass and into Breckenridge, Frisco and Silverthorne. When we reach Kremmling, we will turn onto US-40. Just before the summit of Rabbit Ears Pass, we will turn onto CO-14. Once through the small town of Walden we will make our final push along CO-125 to the finish line at the Wyoming border.

How many weeks will it take you to cover that distance? Take as long as you want, starting this summer. Do the Great Colorado Sign Challenge solo or with a team. This challenge should provide you an excellent test of fitness and a chance to plan to increase your training no matter how many miles you exercise weekly.
