The most demanding hill climb running event in the West! A little over 4100′ vertical in just 6.1 miles, on nearly all singletrack! This non-profit annual race is run in honor of our friend and longtime JHMR Aerial Tram mechanic Chris Onufer (Captain “X”), who on March 7th 2012 tragically passed away in an avalanche. Starting in 2015, the Teton Trail Runners and Jackson Hole Mountain Resort reinvigorated the Rendezvous Mountain Hillclimb with a new and improved course. It’s a pretty “X” course as Onufer would say! 95% singletrack all the way to the top of the world famous Aerial Tram! And to keep the spirit of running alive for future generations, the Teton Trail Runners donates 100% of the proceeds to local running organizations, all in the name of Chris Onufer (2015 recipient was the Jackson high school cross-country teams)
