  • $500 bonus for the first person to break 1 hour

Need To Know:
  • 2 aid stations are provided along the course (near Casper Restaurant and top Bridger Gondola). However due to the backcountry location and rugged nature of this race, racers are encouraged not to depend on these stations as their sole supply of water.
  • The race will go on rain or shine (or snow!).  Please dress and be ready for all kinds of weather, as Rendezvous Mountain and the top of the Aerial Tram are known for variable weather.  In early August, the weather is generally clear/cool in the morning (50's), and warm/sunny by mid day (mid 70's). Thunderstorms are not uncommon in the afternoon.

The 2021 Rendezvous Mountain Hillclimb

The most demanding hill climb running event in the West will have a little bit if a twist this year! There will be a change to the course due to maintenance on the Arial tram. The race will start at the base of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, up the WildFlower Trail to the Rendezvous Lodge, continuing onto the Cirque Trail, and then utilizing the mountain road circle back to the Rendezvous Lodge. 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. And to keep the spirit of running alive for future generations, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort donates 100% of the proceeds to the trails division of Friends of Pathways, all in the name of Chris Onufer.

For 2021 there will be a $5000 cash purse!

  • $1000 each for top male/female finishers,
  • $600 2nd overall male/female
  • $300 3rd overall male/female
  • $50 for top age group winners  
  • $500 bonus for the first person to break 1 hour!
