Trail Updates

Yesterday in the sunny city of Park City we had a tough race called the Jupiter Peak Steeplechase. It involves running up 3,000ft to the top of Jupiter Peak and racing back down to the finish to complete a 15 mile course spread throughout our Park City Mountains! It is a brutal course full of climbing and scrambling but these tough competitors took to the trails to test their skills.
