    What you'll do...

     

     

    Hike it, run it, alone or together, or in our unique FlexRelay format with your trail buddy or your team of 4.

    Rest when you need to. You will summit and descend the same mountain until reaching the equivalent elevation of the namesake mountain of your event. This is your extreme mountain long haul to manage and conquer!

  • We Bring the Highest Mountains to You! 

    We rent a ski resort for 4 days to bring you IronHike...
