Description

With glorious views of the Collegiate Peaks and 4,000ft of ascent along the way, these 30 miles of buttery single track and forest roads are perfect for everyone from the first time 50k’er to the veteran trail runner. Although the Arkansas Valley is famously known for its high alpine peaks, it’s a well kept secret that there’s a stash of arid, desert style trails just outside of Buena Vista (BEW-na Vista), CO - giving the West Line a feel like no other.

The West Line Winder is put on by Freestone Endurance (the same folks that bring you the High Lonesome 100) and is a perfect fall race for any runner!

West Line Winder is hosted by 14er Fest which takes place Sept 24 - 26th in Buena Vista, CO. At the heat of the festival, you'll find that 14er Fest seeks to join together a wide variety of trail users, including both motorized and non-motorized trail enthusiasts. It's visions is to create a platform where all trial groups can recreate and work together to keep trails open and maintained. Join us for trail events, clinics, festival camping, live music, local libations and amazing vendors. 

The race starts on Saturday, September 25th, 2021 at 8am and runners have 10 hours (or 11hrs if you choose the early start) to complete the course. There are five aid stations (not counting the Start/Finish) that are fully stocked with water, Tailwind and typical aid station fare as well some tasty treats to surprise you. The race is capped at 250 runners and registration is $145 no matter when you sign up. With registration runners will receive: course specific 50K training plan, finishers award, gender specific race t-shirt, free full resolution professional images, live runner tracking, entry to the 3 Day 14er Festival ($30 value), and beer token ($5 value), 

As an added challenge, runners can attempt the Sawatch 50/50 by registering for the Sawatch Ascent 50k on the same weekend! Finishers of the Sawatch 50/50 will get a special award and place awards for the top 3 overall men and women. Runners can camp at the Sawatch Ascent start/finish line (Nathrop, CO) for $10/night - space is limited to 35 spots.
