Be the GOAT! The 4th Annual Broken Goat Recap:
The 4th annual Broken Goat 50km/25km/12km Trail Race took place this past Saturday July 21st at RED. 400 racers summited between1-4 of the peaks along the remote & challenging point to point, high-alpine 7 Summits Alpine Trail and the steep face of Red Mountain. Runners flocked from all over British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, USA and even Australia to compete for fastest time while soaking in some absolutely gorgeous 360 degree views of the Rossland Range.
The initial climb for all categories was steep and relentless, but made more enjoyable with the cool alpine air – some referred to it as natures air conditioner.
Once in the finish, racers enjoyed an afternoon bbq, cold beers and companionship with their friends and family.
James Crossman, from Rossland, placed 5th in the 50km race and Dave Thoss & Kim Hemstreet from Rossland, placed 4th and 5th overall in the 25km race and Kim was 1st of the ladies to cross the finish. Well done to all the racers!
