Longs Peak Marathon

Long time readers of the blog know that a) I’m a category 3 idiot and b) I also have idiot friends.

Tomorrow Luke Tilsley, Joel Bush and I will be doing the ‘Longs Peak Marathon’ or a 22.4 (we will pad some ‘lost miles’ I am sure) run from the Long’s Peak Trailhead to Bear Lake and back.  Going to be super fun, super excited to be able to do this.

Here is a map if you need to send a search and rescue or a nice cocktail.  We do need a restock at Bear Lake, so if you are overly excited to see a sweaty me, let me know.

Here is the milage and elevation.

Distance and Milage of Long's Peak Marathon

*UPDATE* We finished!  Took about 6:30 to finish.  Not a whole lot of flat out there, so the uphills were hikes / very little running and the downs were a pretty slow run protecting the knees.

Just amazing country, great running partners and a perfect weather day.  We started at 6:15 and were eating lunch in town at 2.

Jeremy Tanner met up at Bear Lake Trailhead for a restock, which saved me.  Huge thank you!
