Video: Burro Racing in the Mountains of Colorado

As hard as it may be to believe, Burro Racing is a thing on some of the mountain trails of Colorado. But, this isn’t the kind of burro racing you might be imagining. Instead, racers must run alongside the animal, which is not allowed to carry them but can carry their gear. In the video below, Salomon sponsored athletes and ultrarunners Ryan Sandes and Max King travel to Colorado to take part in the 69th annualΒ  Burro Days 30 Mile World Championship Pack Burro Race. Along the way, the got far more than they bargained for.
