Race in Review: XTERRA Pagosa Springs

Despite a rainy, damp week leading up to the event, Sunday Sept 15th was a pearler of a day for the inaugural XTERRA Pagosa Springs. Not too hot, not too cold, just right. It was fun to be part of history in the making - there'll never be another first XTERRA Pagosa Springs. First ever swim in Lake Pagosa (or any of the lakes for that matter!); first ever XTERRA and first ever off-road triathlon! 

We are proud to share that we had a professional photographer at XTERRA Pagosa Springs, snapping happy action shots of you all day!  

Thanks to Trent Bona Photography, we've posted some incredible photos of the race on our Facebook page. Please LIKE the page, check out the Album, TAG yourself and your friends and SHARE the love!

There are also Facebook Albums posted by Melissa Webber, Stephen & Randi Durham, Joanne Irons and Teal Noelle (our GOAL Academy student entered into the Photo contest)...so many memories of the event!
