Southern Teller County Focus Group, POB 328, Victor, 80860
Experience a day of fast, furious, and furry racing that must be seen to be believed. Load up the kids of all ages and come to historic Victor Saturday, Sept. 10 for a day of four-footed races packed with old-time fun.
The annual Victor Pack Burro Race will kick off at Noon in downtown with racers from across the region competing for cash prizes.
Proceeds from the burro race entries benefit the Southern Teller County Focus Group (STCFG), a non-profit that maintains the Trails of Gold and assists with historic preservation and mining education.
The race will begin and end in downtown so you can spend the day surrounded by the historic buildings from the gold rush era. During the day while racers are running trails you can look for unique treasures in Victor’s shops, eat and drink at four local establishments, pan for gold at the Victor Lowell Thomas Museum, or hike on the Trails of Gold for a superior view of the area’s historic mining. In addition, the Victor Lowell Thomas Museum will be offering a Gold Camp Adventure Tour at 10 a.m. returning by 11:30.
The race is produced by the Western Pack Burro Ass-ociation and sponsored by the Southern Teller County Focus Group with assistance from event sponsors Newmont Cripple Creek & Victor and the City of Victor.
