The Devil Mountain Ultra was another phenomenally successful 2014 GECKO event, and in no small part because of the generosity of time and energy from our horde of volunteers.  We had overwhelmingly positive feedback, particularly from our on-course aid stations and at the start/finish line. We can’t tell you the difference this support makes to the runners that come from miles away to participate in our events. Their personal journeys are made all the more memorable with your care and friendliness.

In addition, we are so grateful to the local businesses that continue to support our efforts to bring world-class events to Pagosa Springs, and help us to reduce our expenses in staging these productions.

Special mention to The Pagosa Springs SUN, Elite Recycling, Pagosa Baking Company, DSP Pizzeria, Higher Grounds Coffee, The Quality Resort, Moe’s Maps, The Choke Cherry Tree, Kiwanis, U.S. Forest Service (and Smokey Bear), GOAL Academy, Mountain Home Sound and Security, The Hub Bike Shop, KWUF, ReSport, Sierra Nevada and the Town of Pagosa Springs.

Thank you sincerely.

Morgan, Mike and Kirsten — Team GECKO
