Incredibly similar to the original and infamous TMR route, this course capitalizes on the picturesque trail system surrounding the Telluride region while delivering almost 14,000ft of ascent/descent over 40 miles. In the words of race founder, Dakota Jones- "The course is really hard". We have retooled this years 40 mile course to minimize our time running the dirt roads on the ski area and spending more time on single and doubletrack trails. You will go over 13,000 ft twice along with two additional climbs over 12,000 ft.

This year’s course still includes 1.5 miles of sharp ridgeline above 13,000 ft between Ajax Peak and Imogene Pass. Not to mention the 13,500 ft summit of Telluride Peak along the ridge. We are calling this new section the "Mile and a Half of Sky". Prepare for difficult day in the mountains!

You should know... there are sections of this course that are extremely technical, steep and loose. THIS IS A TECHNICAL MOUNTAIN RACE, NOT A TRAIL RUN- participants will be running to altitudes of over 13,000 ft on exposed ridgelines and steep, rocky summits. The trails are extremely rocky and at times there are no trails at all. There are many sections of this course that will be exposed to falls, potential rockfall and hazardous weather. There will be safety personnel along sections of the route monitoring these hazards but all participants should be responsible for their own safety. THIS IS NOT AN EVENT FOR BEGINNERS
