Kokopelli Classic Run, Fundraiser

Attention All Runners, It's Trail Run Time

Mesa County, Colo. -- Calling all trail runners to the 9th Annual Kokopelli Classic 8 & 16 Mile Trail Runs, in Loma, on Saturday, August 29.

The Ground Team supports all the teams that comprise Mesa County Search & Rescue Control, Inc., a non-profit organization that operates under the umbrella of the Sheriff's Office, but is it's own entity.

Here in Mesa County, everyone (visitors and citizens) benefit from this partnership of local experts who volunteer their time allowing no charge to anyone requiring a rescue mission.

Media are invited and encouraged to cover the run on Saturday, August 29, at the Kokopelli Trailhead, in Loma. Ground Team members will be on-hand to speak with media the morning of the event, and in advance, media can contact Doug directly, at (970) 234-0763.

For anyone interested in registering for the run, there is still time! But, don't delay. Register for either the 8-mile or 16-mile trail run HERE or call (970) 270-6147.
