3/14/16 | Race Registration Starts Tomorrow: JHMR hosts the Rendezvous Mountain Hill Climb: August 6, 2016
(March 14, 2016), Teton Village, WY - The annual Rendezvous Hill Climb running race registration opens tomorrow, Tuesday March 15th. The Hill Climb is one of the most challenging mountain running races in the west, and is hosted by Teton Trail Runners and Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (JHMR) as a non-profit fundraiser. New this year the race comes with a $5,000 cash purse with a $500 bonus for the first runner to break an hour.
The course which climbs over 4,100 vertical feet in only 6.1 miles is 95% single track trail. Last August was the first year the race took place on this single track course, and the course record was set at 1 hour and 9 minutes. With only 250 spots available, the race is expected to sell out. Hosted the first weekend of August annually the Hill Climb is a tribute to friend and longtime JHMR Aerial Tram mechanic Chris Onufer (Captain "X"), who on March 7th 2012 tragically passed away in an avalanche.
