The overall winner was Boulder resident Galen Burrell, who completed the backcountry course in 1 hour, 32 minutes and 31 seconds. Lindsey Knast of Lafayette, Colorado, topped the women’s field with a time of 1:50:50. Complete race results are available at

The city of Aspen and Ute Mountaineer were the race hosts.

This year’s race was presented by Adidas Terrex with additional support from Darn Tough Socks and Skratch Labs. The post-race party included a prize giveaway and lunch to the racers provided by Slow Groovin BBQ.

Noted singer to honor John Denver with concert

Vocalist Laura Angelini, a Billboard Top 40 recording artist, will support the Aspen Camp for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing with a performance at Aspen Camp on Oct. 2.

Her first single — “Share that Love/What The World Needs Now Is Love” — recently reached No. 36 on the Billboard Dance Charts.
