Sporting Events in Steamboat - Summer 2013

04/21/2013 21:48, Published by Christina Freeman, Categories: Sports, Community



To paraphrase a famous Steamboat marketing slogan: When world champions gather in Porto Vecchio, it’s the Tour de France. When they gather in Steamboat, it’s called summertime. Biking, running, swimming, softball, soccer or kickball, Steamboat Springs hosts a full calendar of races and tournaments — some seriously competitive, others with a casual, recreational approach.

.

TRIPLE CROWN SPORTS

Steamboat’s longstanding partner in hosting summer tournaments for adults and children alike, Triple Crown Sports hosts young players’ World Series baseball tourneys, girls’ fastpitch camp and events, and Mountain Magic, a men’s and mixed-team slow pitch softball tournament. Games are held on fields throughout Steamboat. This summer, Patty Harsch and the Pitchers Women’s Slow Pitch team will run the traditional Mountain Magic tournament, adding a partnership with USSSA for a fully sanctioned National Invitational Tournament. This event is promoted as one of the most special adult slow pitch softball tournaments in the history of the game. www.triplecrownsports.com

.

STEAMBOAT RUNNING SERIES

With more than a dozen running races slated for summer 2013, the Steamboat Running Series hosts everything from marathons to 10Ks, from a pentathlon to a 100-miler. Run along the Continental Divide or sprint 400 yards down Lincoln Avenue. The series attracts world champions and kids alike. www.runningseries.com


.

TOWN CHALLENGE RACE SERIES

The Steamboat Town Challenge consists of seven mountain bike races, including both hill climbs and cross country events. The venue changes weekly and includes some of the most scenic settings in the county. Categories range from kids six and under to adult pro. www.townchallenge.com


.

STEAMBOAT MOUNTAIN SOCCER

The 29th annual Steamboat Mountain Soccer Tournament will be held Friday-Sunday, July 19-21. This event attracts teams from throughout the region, including competitive and recreational teams, from U10 to U18. Limited premier teams will be admitted. Up to 110 teams, including more than 10,000 coaches, players, parents and family members attend the tournament. www.steamboat-soccer.com

.

ERIKSEN TOUR DE STEAMBOAT

A long distance, non-competitive road ride, the Tour de Steamboat started in the late 1970s with bike building legend Kent Eriksen, as a century road ride amongst local friends and riders. Today, the Tour de Steamboat boasts the same vintage style with some refined conveniences including stocked aid stations, more cowbells, and one heck of a grand finale BBQ party (where complimentary massages are provided and the beer flows like wine)...and includes 800+ riders. In addition to the 110-mile ride, 25- and 40-mile rides are also planned. Benefactors are all local organizations and charities. www.tourdesteamboat.com

.

STEAMBOAT STAGE RACE

Time trials, a road race and a criterium constitute the Steamboat Stage Race, a three- day event. With Moots, the internationally known company that locally manufactures hand-built bikes as its sponsor, the Steamboat Stage Race attracts more than 300 riders, including some of the top names in the sport. Spectators have many amazing vantage points, especially during the downtown criterium. Saturday-Monday, Aug. 31-Sept. 2.

.

TRIATHLONS

The Steamboat Lake Sprint, Sunday, July 21, is exactly half the distance of the Olympic Triathlon. Swim the clear waters of the lake, ride through the rolling countryside, then run along the trails of Steamboat Lake State Park.  The Steamboat Olympic at Catamount (1.5k Swim, 40k Bike, 10k Run) is slated for Sunday, Aug. 18. This course is suitable for the first-time triathlete or experienced veteran. The 1.5k swim takes place at Lake Catamount. Triathletes then transition to the 40k bike course, followed by the 10k run along Lake Catamount. Race is capped at 600 participants. www.withoutlimits.co/steamboat-springs-triathlon

.

RUN RABBIT RUN ULTRA MARATHON

These are not your beginner’s 50- and 100- mile runs. The possibility of heat, rain or snow, plus steep uphill and downhill sections and nearly two miles of high altitude running add to the challenge of the Run Rabbit Run Ultra Marathon. This well-marked and challenging run takes place amid fall foliage in Routt National Forest. Saturday, Sept. 14. www.runrabbitrunsteamboat.com
