JACKSON, WY – Head to Jackson Hole Mountain Resort on Saturday, August 3rd for the most demanding and FUN hill climb running event in the West! Start at the base of the mountain and run to the top of the tram for little over 4100′ vertical on nearly all singletrack. Whether you plan to hike and take your time or sprint your way to the top, all styles and ages are welcome. This non-profit annual race is run in honor of friend and longtime JHMR Aerial Tram mechanic Chris Onufer (Captain “X”), who on March 7th, 2012 tragically passed away in an avalanche.
Starting in 2015, the Teton Trail Runners and Jackson Hole Mountain Resort reinvigorated the Rendezvous Hillclimb with a new and improved course. It’s a pretty “X” course as Onufer would say! Its 95% singletrack all the way to the top and the route takes you up the Wildflower and Cirque Trails predominantly. And, to keep the spirit of running alive for future generations, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort donates 100% of the proceeds to the trails division of Friends of Pathways, all in the name of Chris Onufer.
