COLORADO SPRINGS - When it comes to racing, Ruth Winder and Katie Hall with team United Healthcare have raced across courses all around the world.

And they’ll be the first to tell you at the professional level it’s not often men and women get to race the same courses.

“I’m really excited! These courses are challenging courses,” said Hall.

It's giving fans twice as much excitement on the race course.
