AVSC youngsters chase bucks in 2.4 Hours of Aspen
There may not have been enough snow on the hill for the big kids to run the 24 Hours of Aspen last weekend, but that didn’t stop a slew of young athletes from the Aspen Valley Ski/Snowboard Club from taking to the Little Nell run for the 2.4 Hours of Aspen, a benefit fund-raiser for the club.
Skiers raced continuously and collected money on a per-lap pledge basis, raising a total of $4,937.10 for the club.
Audi of America, one of the race’s sponsors, agreed to meet the total raised by the racers and presented the Aspen Valley club with a check for $5,000.
Ten-year-old Matthew Tapper, wearing bib No. 1, appropriately enough, took top honors in the race, skiing 13 laps and singlehandedly raising $468.
Following are the results from the 2.4 Hours of Aspen:
Thirteen laps: Matthew Tapper, Liz Laman, A.J. Smollen, Sam Mitchell, Jenny Hearn, Cory Runge, Sam Coffey and Mary Margolin.
