Do you have what it takes?
Sign up to take part in our annual Trail Run on the Flat Tops Wilderness. Runners can choose one of three courses to suit their ability, and all proceeds raised go directly to the Capt. William H. "Pyro" DuBois Memorial Scholarship.
About the run
The donations create a longstanding legacy for Capt. DuBois and help aspiring air force ROTC cadets fulfill their dreams of becoming an aviator. There will be a barbecue following the race. Be aware that this trail run is at an elevation of 9,000+ ft., and it is a rigorous trail riddled with roots, rocks, and uneven terrain!
One event - 3 courses
In memory of Capt. William “Pyro” DuBois who died defending our country when his F-16 crashed in the middle east on 12/01/14. All proceeds from the race go to Pyro’s Wings scholarship which provides financial support to future fighter pilots.
