Run the Rocks
September 11 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm MDT
Run the Rocks is a race like no other! This isn’t a traditional cross-country run; it combines running with scrambling, and maybe even a little parkour. Then you douse it all with adrenaline. Your goal is to make it across the infamous Frank Slide and back. Historically, this was first done by Sid Choquette in order to warn an oncoming train, but you’re doing it to get the best time. Beyond a short trail run at the start, there is no set route through the rocks, so you need to pick the best line. The Slide isn’t flat either; it rolls like waves, so you need to keep your head up and get to high ground in order to see the next CP. Depending on your route, the course is approximately 5km. The elevation depends on your approach but your heart rate will be way up there.
