IntelliTec College of Colorado Springs and its National Technical Honor Society participated in the the 19th annual Emma Crawford Coffin Races and parade on Saturday, October 25th.
The races began in 1995 as a way to remember Emma Crawford, a beloved member of the community. Each year of team of four runners and an Emma compete in the races. This year a record 50 teams competed. The day began with a parade of coffins, hearses, and costumed participants.
Emma Crawford Died of Tuberculosis and was buried atop red mountain at her dying request. In 1929, after lots of rain and bad weather, her remains were washed down the side of the mountain and into Manitou Springs. Thus bringing about the annual coffin races.
Hopefully you had the chance to join in on the fun and cheer on the IntelliTec team!
