Packet pickup will take place from 3-9pm Friday and Saturday at the Western State Colorado University Field House, 600 E. Ruby Ave, Gunnison, Colorado. We will be waiting for you inside the Fieldhouse doors.


Once you’re done and back in downtown at the starting line, you’ll be smack-dab in the middle of the Growler after party. We have food and beverages (please drink responsibly) for you and eventually, we’ll do awards. We suggest that you put your bike away securely (you might want to bring a lock for peace of mind or get it back to where you are staying or on or in your car), clean up as you like and kick back and enjoy the post-race glow and feeling of abused legs.

  • Half-Growler Party on Saturday begins around 1pm with Awards around 3pm.
  • Full-Growler and Sunday’s Half-Growler party on Sunday begins around 1pm with Awards around 5pm.
