On Saturday, Aug. 12, our very own Rachel Saurer and Tyler Bouldin took first place in this year’s competition. The eight-legged race (four human and four equine) started and ended at the Double Eagle Casino on Bennet Avenue in Cripple Creek.

It consisted of two media team members and a real-life donkey running side by side to the finish.

The last day of the festivities ends Sunday, April 13. Vendors, a kid’s zone, beer gardens, and live music will all be happening up on Cripple Creek.
