Durango Baluarte 2013 Go Fast Games! BASE Event


More then 40 BASE jumpers gathered at the Baluarte Bridge in May, 2013 for the first ever Go Fast Games! Baluarte Bridge event to celebrate the 450th anniversary of the founding of Durango.

Over 100 jumps were made during the event with no injuries. This was quite a feat as the canyon was so tight it really tested the dexterity and skills of the jumpers in a way that no other official BASE bridge event ever did.
