2022 Burro Days

This year, Ass Kickers United is participating in the 73rd Burro Days race. Never done burro racing, but this sounds bad ass.

The first year of the World Championship Pack Burro Race in 1949 saw 21 entrants with only 8 finishing the race. These days there are nearly 100 racers and burros that take on this historic challenge. Some choose the “lower altitude” short course of approximately 15 miles while others take on the long course and attempt the grueling climb to the top of Mosquito Pass and back, 29+ miles and an elevation change of 3,232 feet! The racers start at 9,953 feet in Fairplay and hit the halfway point at the top of Mosquito Pass, elevation 13,185!
