Others in the group report they spent 3-4 hours on the trail and turned around when they ran into large snowbanks prior to the biggest obstacles on the trail.

Kingdom Days Outhouse Race Results
the seventh annual Kingdom Days. Celebrate over 150 years of Breckenridge’s diverse history with mining, exploration and adventure. Founded in 1859, Breckenridge was inadvertently excluded from some copies of the U.S. maps, becoming known as "Colorado's Kingdom" until 1936 when it finally became incorporated. For an entire weekend, this real town turns upside down to pay tribute to gold fields and mining, exploration and adventure, brothels and saloons, booms and busts. The top three finishers in the 2013 Outhouse Races are as follows:
1st (Golden Throne) and People's Choice: The Dreaded Runs (four-time champs).
2nd (Silver Moon): Cleveland Steamers.
3rd (Bronze Bucket): Beaver Run.
