Hut Run Hut is a six-day, one-hundred-mile, Aspen-to-Vail mountain running adventure with a priority of fun over fast. Running ten to twenty-five miles (15-40kilometers) per day along the iconic and breath-taking Continental Divide, participants will traverse a portion of the Rockies while resting at the secluded 10th Mountain Division Huts along the way.
As a former hut-keeper and trail-worker with the 10th Mountain Division Hut Association I am eager to share the experience of running remotely through the mountains that have long been my backyard.
2016 Guest Guides: In addition to the perennial Jenn Shelton, British Fell Running Champion - Ricky Lightfoot - the Wonder from Down Under-er - Anna Frost - and a guest appearance from a man that needs no introduction, Scott Jurek - will each be joining us for a week.
We will be pairing up with local and knowledgable Aspen Alpine Guides, so that participants can rest assured that at least somebody out there will actually know what they are doing. AAG has been guiding people into and up the Rockies for a lot of years and I'm happy to be able to work with them.
Chef Dave will be joining us for a second year to again provide the finest cuisine above eleven-thousand feet.
Cell phone coverage will be minimal, oxygen will be average, antics, fun and beauty will be at the highest level. The total cost for the trip will cover all food, beer, all hut fees, local transportation and photos following the trip.
WAIT! THERE'S MORE! To make sure that you have the right kit to run across the Rockies we are including a Salomon Advanced S-Lab Skin pack ($200 value) for each participant.
Due to the size of the huts the group size is set at 11 people.
Hut Run Hut with us!
