Targhee Hill Climb Course Description:
The 3 mile (distance extended from 2.9 miles) uphill run starts at the base of the Dreamcatcher chairlift and climbs 1840' to the top of Fred's Mountain. Following the single-track Bannock Trail, (or the Teton Vista Traverse if snow pack is an issue), the course will feature a water station at roughly 1 mile and at the finish line. IMPORTANT: every competior should plan on carrying a water bottle or hydration system as the trail is 100% 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 chairlift down after crossing the finish line.
Click Here to register on-line.. Hard copies can be picked up at Dreamchasers (47 South Main Street - Driggs) after June 1st. Race premiums (shirt, hat or something similar) are guaranteed to those who register before 6/11/14; since this event is a fundraiser, only a limited number of premiums are ordered.
Race day registration will be available on the Plaza at Grand Targhee Resort from 8:30am-9:30am (but, as mentioned above, a limited number of race race giveaways are produced each year so please do not be upset is none are available during race day registration).
Proceeds benefit the Wray Landon Legacy Fund at the Teton Regional Land Trust.
The 2014 race WILL utilize the Bannock Trail. Here's the course map for the 2014 Race - there is snowpack near the top of the course that covers the Bannock Trail, so the total distance will be just under 3 miles. Also, participants will be crossing a snowfield for just over a tenth of a mile (near the top of Fred's Mountain and the Dreamcatcher lift).
**Stick around Grand Targhee after the race and enjoy mountain biking, hiking, frisbee golf and the Trap Bar. More information available on www.grandtarghee.com
