100 Mile Endurance Run (Friday 6 PM Start)
28,000 Vertical Feet of Climb. 12 Aid Stations. 7 Substantial Climbs. 1 Complete Loop of the Pioneer Mountain Range.
The 100 Mile option is an incredible test of high altitude trail running fitness. There is nothing easy about this course and is recommended for those looking for a legitimate post-graduate run.
Qualifier UPDATE: qualifying races from January 2019 to now will be accepted.
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 2021 is to raise $3,000 for the ARPKD/CHF Alliance.
30K OPTION: This will take place over the last half of the 60K, and is no joke. Please do not sign up for this event unless you are prepared for a long, tough day in the mountains. 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. Runners typically take four to six hours to finish this incredible 30 Km race. Much like the Sarlacc from "Return of the Jedi," you will find a new definition of pain and suffering, only maybe not over the course of 1,000 years.
