Welcome to the Discrete Peak Series, a new trail running series focused on shorter distances with an emphasis on conquering peaks.  Each race, starting at the base lodge of various mountain resorts, you will run, scramble, hike, and trek your way to the top of a peak before descending back down to the finish.  Once you are done competing, hang out in our vendor village, grab some dinner or a drink, and listen to live music.  The post race festivities are complete with a raffle, ceremony presentation, and gear giveaways.

You’ll find no gimmicks in this series, just you and a peak. Unlike any other local trail series, you’ll find short distances with an emphasis on max elevation gain. Do you have what it takes to be the fastest to the top? Come out and test what you’re made of and enjoy the sights from classic mountain ranges. Lets bag some peaks!

The races will award equal prize money for male and female: $1000 for 1st place man and $1000 for 1st place woman. The fastest man and woman to the top of each venue will win a new GoPro camera. The events are 100% solar powered thanks to Goal Zero. And aid stations will be stocked with delicious and energizing PROBAR products including BOLT and FUEL.

Registration is now open to the first 300 runners at each venue.

Alta – August 9th – The event will be based out of Albion Lodge with a course that includes famous trails like Greeley and the High-T, while taking you to the peak of Baldy, before returning back to Albion Grill.
