Thousands of spectators turned out to cheer on 43 teams in this year’s Emma Crawford Coffin Races on Saturday, Oct. 29.
Four runners push the coffin containing the fifth team member (Emma) 195 yards up Manitou Avenue. The beloved event had been canceled the past two years.
“Border Pirates,” sponsored by Border Burger Bar, won in 25.4 seconds. “The Boys” from Adam’s Mountain Café came in second and “Feeling Nauti,” the Frozen Dead Guy Days Team from Nederland, was third.
Gina of the “Back Side of the Moon” won for best Emma, the best coffin prize went to the Aviv Tile and Remodeling team and “BauHaus Bunnanagans” won the best entourage award.
