Georgetown Pack Burro Race @ 11:00am
In the early days of the mining industry in Colorado, miners would take burros through the mountains of Colorado while prospecting. Because the burros were carrying supplies, the miners could not ride the animals and so they would walk, leading the donkey.
The Georgetown Pack Burro Race commemorates these miners and their burros. Observe this unique, 8 mile race from the streets of Georgetown starting at 11am!
Rotary “Call to Doo-ty” Poop Drop
Before the race, the Clear Creek 2000 Rotary tapes off and numbers 300 3×3 squares on the ground that makes up the first stretch of the race. After the Pack Burro Race, the Rotary then meticulously weighs out the poop droppings collected within each square to determine which square collected the heaviest pile – the heaviest pile wins! First, second, and third place prizes available – Good luck!
Want to bet on a square or ten? Check back here for a QR code to access Poop Drop Squares available for purchase online!
