High Park Fire Has No Impact on Quad Rock Course – 2013 Date Set

While the effects of the devastating High Park Fire will be felt for years to come here in Fort Collins, we were very fortunate that the trail networks of Lory State Park and Horsetooth Mountain Park were left essentially untouched by the blaze. In fact, the Timber Trail at Lory acted as a line of defense for the rest of the park, with back burning taking place west from the trail to keep the fire from moving east and south into the park and towards town.

This means that the 2nd annual Quad Rock will go ahead as planned on May 11, 2013.

We are in preliminary discussions with sponsors and vendors, but the event focus will be much the same as last year: great course, impeccable marking, great awards, great food, great music, and tons of fun for everyone.

Registration will open in December.
