Built upon the 18 year legacy of the famed Grand Traverse ski race, the GORE-TEX Grand Traverse Mountain Run navigates the same alpine route between the iconic mountain towns of Crested Butte and Aspen, Colorado. In the pre-dawn light of downtown Crested Butte, athletes gather on Elk Avenue for a goodwill blessing before setting off on their 40 mile trans-mountain journey to Aspen. Racers will climb close to 8,000 vertical feet, ascending both Star (12,507′) and Taylor Pass (11,928′) in their effort to cross the Elk Mountain Range, completing the course at the base of Ajax mountain.
