Tweet In 2012, I nearly convinced a friend to run a 6 day, 120 mile trail race in the Rocky Mountains that reaches an altitude of over 12,500 feet. That race is the Transrockies Run, a mostly singletrack ultra that includes nearly 20,000 feet of elevation gain. Needless to say, it’s a daunting endeavor. And […]
