High above timberline last Saturday morning, a mile below Imogene Pass, Rick Trujillo re-positioned an orange cone bearing a large black numeral 9.

That meant that hundreds of us had run and hiked up 9 miles so far, and gained about 4,000 vertical feet. Looking behind and below us, one could see hundreds more runners, putting one foot in front of the other. Ouray native Rick Trujillo had first put on this race 49 years ago.
