THE CIRQUE SERIES (2018 Schedule announced in December)

The Cirque Series is redefining what mountain running is all about. Starting from the base of a world-famous ski resort, you’ll rally up windswept ridges and glacial cirques to towering peaks, power down a quad-burning descent, and break the tape into a festival of live music, food, drink, and vendor tents. The elevation is serious but the mileage is manageable, and the race is as hardcore as you want it to be--beat the pros down to earn legend status and cash prizes, or enjoy the views and let the challenge be its own reward.
