To Imogene, a Flagstaff Love Letter
For many years, Flagstaff has sent more runners to Colorado’s Imogene Pass Run than any other town—including any town in Colorado. This book project was sparked by our inspiring running community and its unique relationship with that iconic trail race between Ouray and Telluride. To Imogene, a Flagstaff Love Letter is filled with personal stories, photos, and illustrations that intimately show what the Imogene race means to Flagstaff, and in turn what Flagstaff gives to the race. For a sneak peak inside, check out our slideshow.

Learn about the Flagstaff+Imogene project
There’s a whole community behind this book project, and our gratitude goes out to everyone who has supported it, whether by contributing stories and photos, cheering us on the steep trail uphill toward publication, or offering financial support via the Flagstaff Imogene Circle.
To find out who contributed stories and photos and learn more about the artistic team that brought this project to life, visit our Imogene team page. We’ve also listed every single person named in the book, from running buddies and crew to family and friends (with a few writers and basketball stars thrown in!).
To give back to the community that is making this book possible, we’ve chosen to donate 10% of net sales to BLE Flagstaff. This nonprofit organization performs random acts of kindness with the intent to make a positive difference in the community. These acts can take many unexpected forms and include anyone. BLE Flagstaff believes that through kindness, we can all “pay it forward” and help create a culture of giving that can benefit all of us.
