Wild West Relay rolls through Steamboat on Saturday


— The eighth annual Wild West Relay began Friday in Fort Collins and will see runners trickle into Steamboat Springs throughout the day Saturday.

The relay takes runners 200 miles from Fort Collins into Wyoming, back down to Colorado and eventually into Steamboat, where they’ll finish at Strawberry Park Elementary School.

The last runners should arrive no later than 4:30 p.m. Saturday.

The event features teams of four to 12 runners trading off legs of the race.

Racer Phil Purdy is trying to become the third man to complete a solo race.
