This past Saturday Teton Village was abuzz with runners and hikers- 181 to be exact for the Rendezvous Hill Climb. This was the first time the historic race was run on new single track trail all the way up to the top of the tram, and the course record has now been set.
Jackson local, Matt Chorney, took the win with a time of 1 hour and 9 minutes. Winning woman, Jenny Wolfe of Bozeman, MT finished the course in 1 hour and 21 minutes.
There were people participating from all over the country, and all ages! For the complete race results, click here. Youngest finisher was 8 year old Edan Hautamaki. The oldest finisher is Jackson local, Jon Parker 79 years young – who also competed in Snow King and Grand Targhee hill climb races.
It was a great turn out for the race and very special to see Chris Onufer’s family participating and enjoying the day. Big thanks are in order to the Teton Trail Runners, race day volunteers (yes, the last aid station had bacon – best thing ever!) and Doug Cook, JHMR lift supervisor, who organized the event. All proceeds went to the local high school cross country teams, who showed up in force to run.
