A very difficult and exceptionally beautiful run through the Pioneer Mountains. Entrants will reach a high point of 11,000' during the course of the race. Entry should NOT be taken lightly. This race is an excellent trainer for any high-altitude 50 or 100 Miler. Runners will receive a unique award for finishing this event. Our major goal in 2016 is to raise $3,000 for the ARPKD/CHF Alliance. We raised $2,000 in 2015!
30K OPTION: This will take place over the last half of the 60K. Please do not sign up for this if you are a wimp. With an average vertical climb of 325' per mile and the added challenge of traversing remote terrain this race will challenge even the best athletes. ALL your aid is hiked in.
2016 Stage Race
The stages will be 27 mi/15 mi/38 mi over the course of three days. This SIMPLY will not be the event to miss. 80 miles with over 22,000 ft of elevation gain over some very remote and beautiful terrain. Your entry fee will get you free camping and shuttling, some very nice race schwag, some cool clothing, plus all the standard race amenities you typically see at backcountry ultramarathons.
