Not the prize but the struggle. Sent off course in the early miles of the Ouray 100, Avery Collins finds himself near last place at one of the world's most difficult trail races. Rather than accepting defeat, Avery spends the next ninety miles enduring foul weather and high altitude terrain in a daring attempt to reclaim his lead. In loving memory of Al Lawrence. Non laurus luctatio. Not the prize but the struggle.
