Description

_ The 2022 Running Up for Air - Grandeur:
 

The Up For Air Series is a collection of endurance events created to amplify informed dialogue and empower organizations actively working on air quality solutions. Proceeds from Up For Area events are directed at carefully selected non-profit groups who demonstrate high value influence strategies. The race platform is used to expose participants and the general public to science-based material about the importance of healthy air. All events are conducted with a minimal footprint philosophy.

Running Up For Air - Grandeur - is a 6, 12, or 24 hour winter endurance challenge that takes place on Grandeur Peak in the Wasatch Mountains. The event was created in 2012 to raise money in support of the fight for improved air quality for those who live along the Wasatch Front.  The race is simply stated, run from the Church Fork picnic area up to the summit of Grandeur Peak (at 8,299' elevation) and back as many times as possible in the allotted time. While only 5.8 miles long, each lap has ~2,600' of gain and is often tougher than folks anticipate. Repeat this as many times as possible until you Refuse To Continue (RTC). The time of year (February!) is intentional as it coincides with the latter part of the winter inversion "season".  Given the time of year the route is almost entirely snow covered and can easily involve harsh winter mountain conditions.
