Races. Races. And More Races!

OK, if you haven’t already signed up, get your calendar out now and check these upcoming race dates:

Grand Teton Races - Saturday, September 3rd.  This year we’re offering a 50K option in addition to the 50 Mile, Trail Marathon, and 10K.  As in the past, Grand Targhee will be our host and provide the centerpiece for our traditional cloverleaf course.  Please note however,  this year all of our races will take place on Saturday, with post race festivities beginning at 6:00 PM  at BBQ Wild Bill’s Restaurant.  Click here for all the details.

Jackson Hole Marathon - Saturday, September 24th.  Join us for the inaugural running of the Jackson Hole Marathon.  Or consider the Marathon Relay or Half-Marathon options.  The Marathon courses start on the Town Square, with the Half starting near the Community Bible Church at H.S. Road and S. Park Loop Road. Both courses finish at Teton Village, and  both will traverse some truly spectacular scenery along a fast, mostly flat running surface.  The temperature should be ideal, and with the trees in their full fall colors we think this promises to be an ideal race day combination.  Click here for all the details.

Tucson Marathon - Sunday, December 11th.  If it starts to look like winter  sports season in early December where you live, but you still won’t have filled your fix for another foot race, then come on down to Arizona and join us for the 17th annual Holuoloa Marathon.  We also offer a Marathon Relay and a Half- Marathon. This is a fast and fair course, and a certified Boston qualifier.  So come out and run your first marathon or your fastest marathon or anything in between.  Click here for all the details.
