Dear GTRelay Tribe - Unfortunately, life and the running industry has taken a detour and we will be cancelling the 2017 Grand Teton Relay. This decision was not made lightly, but we don't want you hung out to dry with no relay adventure on the horizon. For this reason we have teamed up with Ragnar to give you more reasons to get out and run through the night. READ MORE >>
The Grand Teton Relay™ is a 12 or 6 person running relay covering 180 miles of beautiful and challenging terrain beginning in Ashton, ID and traveling through Island Park, Grand Targhee, and finishing in Jackson Hole, WY. Running in the shadows of the Tetons with your best friends is the ultimate road trip!
Henry David Thoreau observed that most men lead lives of quiet desperation. This day, night, day adventure through one of the best kept secrets of the west could be the exact opposite of quiet desperation-boisterous contentment? It’s hard to imagine a setting that is further away from the “office”.
So leave the kids with grandma, strap on your runners and pack your party wagon! What happens in the Tetons stays in the Tetons (until it shows up on youtube).
Grand Adventure Let’s face it-you need adventure to look forward to and this course will deliver. Barring alzheimers, you will never forget your relay through the Tetons.
Connect with Friends Nothing says friendship like 24 hours in a cramped, stinky, wild party wagon. You will connect with your friends in ways you never could at home. Just think of the stories you will tell!
The Tetons The views you will see are unmatched. The Tetons will follow your team across rolling farm hills, steep mountain roads, and fast running trails. Imagine the stars shining over the Grand, lighting your way. It might make you cry (If you are into that sort of thing).
