Climb from the base of Sunrise mountain up to the peak at 10,700ft, catch your breath and enjoy a short descent, then climb again to the top of Apache peak,at 11,100ft. As you leave Apache and make your way back to the summit of Sunrise, you’ll have the chance to high five other runners making their way to the summit. Then, wake up your quads and bomb down a different route from your ascent. Once you’ve made it back down to the base, to conclude your one and only loop, or to head out for more, we’ll be ready for you with aid and encouragement.
