Phoenix Summit Challenge (Nov 2017)

What: My 33rd birthday plans!

When: Nov 18, 2017

Registration is $85. Option for 4, 5 or 7 summits. Opens August 19 @ 10:30 AM

7 Summits is about 25 miles and 5,000′ of elevation gain. Starts at 5 AM and you have to leave the last trailhead by 4:30. Need to complete at least a 23 minute mile for the entire event to finish on time.

Jon and I decided to do the 7 summits option, which also had three “routes” (actually order of summits) that you can chose from. I was in the enrollment form exactly at 10:30 when it opened, and in the 3 minutes it took me to get through the registration process our first choice route already sold out!! That threw me for a loop, so I quickly picked the first alternative option I could click on, and thankfully we were able to successfully register for 7 summits. Phew!
