On your mark
Get set. Go.
The annual Teton Mountaineering Cache Creek to Game Creek Trail Run returns Saturday for its 39th year.
The race will kick off at 8 a.m. in Snow King Mountain Resort’s upper parking lot. From there runners will make their way over Cache Creek, across the Game Creek Divide and then down and out along the Game Creek trail until finishing at the Game Creek trailhead.
The race is an 18-or-so-kilometer ordeal (around 11 miles), complete with 3,000 feet of elevation change. It’s sure to be a doozy, and it’s not for the weak of heart (or knees).
Registration costs $35 until race day, when the price jumps to $40. To sign up and find details, visit TinyURL.com/cacherun.
No, seriously, get pumped.
Women climbers are invited to the WomenStrong Town Pump from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Teton Boulder Park. The event presents a twist on the weekly Town Pump, celebrating women on the wall with a night of free climbing clinics.
Women and girls (transgender and cisgender) as well as nonbinary people who identify with the women’s community are eligible to compete for the evening’s prizes. The event is free and open to the public.
