Clubs and Trifecta

Prize Change: Due to expressed concerns from the parks, we will no longer offer the 50% and 20% discount to those who complete a club or the trifecta. We will still continue with the clubs and trifecta, but instead will be sending those who complete the challenge an awesome piece of memorabilia. We’re still hammering out design and details, but we’ll announce as soon as it’s finalized. We will be honoring the discount for anyone who completed a club or the trifecta in 2016.

This hike is a 6 mile loop up to Bradley Lake and back down past Taggart Lake, with extremely scenic views of the Tetons, pretty much the whole way. You’ll start at the Taggart Lake Trailhead, then connect with Bradley Lake Trail. You can get detailed directions and stats on this hike the Trail Run Project website.

Be sure to take your picture at Bradley Lake (at about the 2 mile mark) and don’t forget to bring lots of water!

This hike is BEAUTIFUL and offers amazing views of the Grand Teton range. It’s a 12 mile round-trip hike that will take about 8 hours to complete. During race weekend, there will likely be some snow toward the top of the trail. Please bring plenty of water and do not act irresponsibly!

*If you’re participating in one of the Doubles, or taking part in the Yellowstone Half Marathon, this will be a great hike to do! It’s in Grand Teton National Park, but near the south entrance of Yellowstone!

This hike is just under 10 miles round-trip and actually takes you up into the Teton Range. Please bring plenty of water and do not act irresponsibly!

Grand Teton Trifecta

The Grand Teton Trifecta is made up of 3 different activities, which focus more on you experiencing the park rather than doing one big hike. You must complete all 3 in order to complete the Trifecta. Same rules as the club hikes apply: take your picture at each of the 3 locations with your bib and finisher medal and send them to us 72 hours after finishing the race. If you complete the Trifecta you will receive a special prize to commemorate! We’re finalizing details and design of this prize and we’ll update once it’s set.

The Trifecta is meant to be challenging, but less strenuous. Each section of the three-part challenge is iconic to the park, but doable with children. The three Grand Teton Trifecta activities are:

1. Cascade Canyon (via Jenny Lake).

2. Snake River Overlook.

3. The Jackson Hole Tram to Rendezvous Point.

Be sure to bring your race bib and finisher medal to each location and make sure they’re clearly visible in each picture!

Cascade Canyon (via Jenny Lake)

jennylakeYou’ll take the Jenny Lake shuttle boat across the lake. You’ll then make a short hike into Cascade Canyon. The boat ride and the hike are both beautiful! Cascade Canyon itself was formed by glaciers and is where many popular hikes in the area begin. Though you do not have to complete any of them for the Trifecta, they’re worth looking in to.

Note that there is a fee for taking the boat shuttle and please be mindful of the boating schedule. Learn more here.

Snake River Overlook

Snake_River_Overlook,_TetonsThis is the location where Ansel Adams took his iconic picture of the Tetons in 1942. The overlook is easily accessible from the roadside parking lot located nine miles north of Moose on the main highway. This is easily one of the most beautiful views of the mountain range. You don’t want to miss it!

The Jackson Hole Tram to Rendezvous Point

Rendezvous_Mountain_WY1The last of the three trifecta hikes isn’t exactly a hike. We want you to take the Jackson Hole Tram from Teton Village up to Rendezvous Point. The views on the 15 minute tram ride, alone, are breathtaking. At the top you’ll get an incredible view of the Snake River Valley and Grand Teton National Park and the Gros Ventre Range. It’s amazing!
