Ready for a challenge for 2017? Oh, we’ve sure got one for you with Under Armour Mountain Running Series! In partnership with POWDR Adventure Lifestyle CO, the UA Mountain Running Series kicks off in July at Oregon’s Mt. Bachelor, the largest ski area in the Cascade Mountains with a peak elevation of 9,065 ft. The next stop in the series takes place in August at Killington, touting a peak elevation of 4,241 ft. and tucked in the Green Mountains of the Appalachians in Central Vermont. The series finished up at Copper Mountain, situated in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado with a peak elevation of 12,313 ft.
Ideal for trail running enthusiasts and professionals (or wannabes, like us!), this trail running series can be done individually or as a series. Each location offers diverse climates, different distances and varying elevations built to push athletes at every level to their personal limits. This includes a 5K, 10K, 50K, Half Marathon (we are doing this one!), Marathon, Marathon Relay and Vertical K. And if the accomplishment of reaching the top of a beautiful mountain and going down isn’t quite enough for you, think about the $5,000 prize purse that will be divided between the top 3 male and female 50K finishes at each event.
What is sure to be a competitive, challenging, and life-changing experience running on a beautiful mountain, we are so psyched for this incredible event that is sure to be a test of our mental and physical abilities.
