Coloradan mountain runner Rick Trujillo is one of the most central figures in the pioneering era of the sport of mountain running in United States history and was inducted into the Colorado Running Hall of Fame in 2014. He is likely one of the only people alive with a mountain running diary that dates back to 1972. In the 1970s, he won the Pikes Peak Marathon five times. As an adult, he moved back to his hometown of Ouray, in the San Juan Mountains, and decided to run over Imogene Pass to Telluride, an endeavor that inspired the start of the Imogene Pass Run—an event he continues to organize and run.
