We are very pleased to anounce Something New this year $5.00 of your registration will be donated to Autism. More details to come through out the year.
If you are registering as a Pair or 3-4 person team, Each team member must register individually and your team name must match on the registration form.
Racers start with a 13 mile bike ride on a paved road seeing the change from desert cactus to ponderosa pine. The course winds through the streets of Grants and begins the 1800 foot climb. At the end of the paved road, bikes are parked
Racers must run the next five miles on gravel roads. The road generally starts out dry but usually runs to snow packed. This part of the course will climb 1200 feet in elevation.
Runners then turn to cross-country skis to challenge the next 1200 foot climb of the mountaineering ski course that covers two miles. During the final yards of this course you must face the notorious "HEARTBREAK HILL" that lays waiting for weary racers.
The remaining one mile climb on snowshoes gains 600 feet to reach the 11,301 foot summit of MT. TAYLOR where a person can see for over a hundred miles on a clear day.
Then the Best Part you have to turn around and Go back to where you started!!!
