Red Flags

Dear Editor:

This coming Saturday, June 15, the XTERRA Turkey Track Trail Race will be held on the trails in the Turkey Springs area. 

The race follows trails through the forest and must be clearly marked with flags to guide runners. These marking flags are placed on the trails Friday, June 14, and removed within 24 hours after the race. We would like to ask residents living close by, and locals using the trails, to please not remove any flags prior to the race on Saturday. 

This race brings serious runners from all across the country to Pagosa, and we are expecting well over 200 registrations by Saturday. We would sincerely appreciate your help in making this race a positive experience for these visiting racers. Let’s show them the best of our Pagosa hospitality. Thanks for your support.

Mike Le Roux
