Welcome to Life’s Short 2017

Life’s Short Pentathlon was conceived as a way to bring friends together, to celebrate the lifestyle living in Colorado allows, to support local businesses, and to raise awareness about the ease of living a low impact, sustainable lifestyle.

Now in the 5th year, Life’s Short will bring together old friends, create new friendships, and will be a great way to kick off the summer of 2017 in Colorado, while celebrating the state and participating in the outdoor activities we all love.

Thanks for all of the support over the years. We wouldn’t be here today without everyone telling their friends and heading out into the mountains for a good time. This year’s Life’s Short is going to be the best yet and I’m stoked to see what everyone brings to the table.

Cheers and remember,

Life’s Short, Live It Up!
