We were honored when we found out that the readers of Elevation Outdoors, as
well as thousands of Coloradans had voted our company for not just one, but three
categories in their annual Best of the Rockies issue! Not just because we have the
best guides and staff in the country, not just because we are an official
concessionaire for Rocky Mountain National Park, and not only because we put on
Colorado’s best Mud Race, but also because we’re more than a guide company.
We’re a community resource, an adventure and education hub, and a company that
is proud to represent the state of Colorado.

Boulder, to full-day trips around Rocky Mountain National Park, and exciting multi-

Guides has an excursion that’s going to be thrilling for everyone.
Best Mud Race Event
Over twenty obstacles, a mind-blowing slip and slide over 400-feet long, and the
support of the local Colorado community, Hard As Nails Obstacle Mud Race is
Colorado’s only locally managed obstacle race. Utilizing the natural terrain around
the city of Westminster, the race, put on in cooperation with the Westin
Westminster Hotel and the city, tests racers mental and physical fortitude as they
run, jump, crawl through obstacles that will test their every skill. The key to
finishing is teamwork. Competitors rely on each other to encourage, pick up, and
assist across the challenging terrain. With a separate course for kids and adults, we
make sure that each course is age appropriate, safe (no electricity or fire), and most
of all, fun!
