Pack and Walk Llama Race
What Happens on Race Day?
Race day is Saturday, July 27, 2019. Race day registration begins at 9:00 AM on Front Street and the races begin at 11:00 AM. We run three different heats on race day, beginning at 11 AM and usually ending around 1:30 PM.
- The first and oldest is the Pack Llama Race where all llamas must have a saddle, panniers, and 30 pounds of gear. The object of this heat is to make it through the course and to the finish line as quickly as possible. The main goal since day one has been to replicate what it might be like if you were out on the trail with a pack llama while in a controlled environment.
- The second heat of the day is the Lama Rama. This event is sponsored by Rocky Mountain Rural Health. This wacky race is run by medical professionals who dress up in costumes. Each team of four participants runs with a single llama. The purpose of this event is to generate awareness of the need for organ and tissue donation.
- The third heat of the day is the public walk of the three-mile course. Folks can take an enjoyable stroll with a llama to just get a feel for the wonderful world of llamas at a slower pace.
The Llama Lunacy Course for the children is free and opens around noon. Each child who walks our gentle PR llama through the small obstacle course receives a ribbon and a coupon for an ice cream cone at the Silver Scoop Creamery.
This year instead of watching someone else head down that trail and off over the horizon please join us in Fairplay for the 37th Annual Pack Llama Race. It could change your life forever.
