Every year our club provides communications support for the Hard Rock 100 Mile Endurance Race. These hardy hams staffed the Ouray and Governor’s Basin aid stations. The club trailer, shown in the picture, was used at the Ouray aid station. This race is considered an “elite class” race and people come from all over the world to participate. The race officials were delighted we were there to provide essential communications, and showered us each with a tee shirt, hoodie, and all the food we could eat.

Other club members participated at other aid stations.
