About The Mt. Taylor Winter Quadrathlon

Racers start with a 13 mile bike ride on a paved road seeing the change from desert cactus to ponderosa pine. The course winds through the streets of Grants and begins the 1800 foot climb. At the end of the paved road, bikes are parked

Racers must run the next five miles on gravel roads. The road generally starts out dry but usually runs to snow packed. This part of the course will climb 1200 feet in elevation.

Runners then turn to cross-country skis to challenge the next 1200 foot climb of the mountaineering ski course that covers two miles. During the final yards of this course you must face the notorious "HEARTBREAK HILL" that lays waiting for weary racers.

The remaining one mile climb on snowshoes gains 600 feet to reach the 11,301 foot summit of MT. TAYLOR where a person can see for over a hundred miles on a clear day.

Then the Best Part you have to turn around and race back to where you started.

At the completion of the Ultimate challenge you will have conquered 4,900 ft of elevation gain, and 43 miles and some change in exhilarating and agonizing bliss.  Are you ready for your Ultimate Challenge!
