Part of the "2013 RUN TO THE SUMMIT SERIES"
The 2013 Targhee Hill Climb - Wrun For Wray, is part of the Run To The Summit Series, which includes the Snow King Hill Climb and the Rendezvous Mountain Hill Climb at the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort . Competitors who complete all three Hill Climb events, for a total of 12 miles and over 7,500 feet of climbing, will be eligible for overall awards and a raffle with special prizes.
Targhee Hill Climb Course Description:
The 2.9 mile uphill run starts at the base of the Dreamcatcher chairlift and climbs 1840' to the top of Fred's Mountain. Following the Teton Vista Traverse, the course will feature a water station at the finish line; every competior should plan on carrying a water bottle or hydration system as the trail is exposed, the weather could be warm and is entirely at altitude (8,000 - 10,000 ft).
Competitors can send extra clothing to the top of the lift with a race official and ride the Dreamcatcher chair down after crossing the finish line.
