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!
