A recent jaunt to Breckenridge for more than just a little exercise has a local group of athletes relishing in the fact they completed one of the most demanding challenges of their lives and are now debating whether or not to return for a second challenge next year.
On June 13, eight local athletes challenged themselves to tackle the Breckenridge Spartan Sprint Race.
According to Bill Heddles Recreation Director Whitnee Lear, there were 75 participants with a total of 62 teams that played in the two-day tournament hosted at Bill Heddles Recreation Center.
The range of ages for contestants in the tournament stretched from 13 to 76.
Tournament organizers touted the Horizons-Cedaredge Rotary Summer Scramble Golf Tournament on June 20 at Cedaredge Golf Course to be a huge success with 91 players taking part. The event was co-sponsored by Cedaredge Rotary Club and Volunteers of America Horizons Health Care and Retirement Community.
