New For 2015, The Teton Pass Kicker is part of the 2015 Teton Trail Series.
Teton Pass Kicker is an endurance race weekend on the wonderful and burly trails of Teton Pass in Jackson Hole Wyoming. This race is meant to showcase the new trails that were constructed as part of the JH Trails Project and to establish an annual event to provide consistent funding for trail construction and maintenance through Friends of Pathways. There are two separate races; a mountain bike race and a trail running race.
The event will be based out of the town of Wilson, WY which is nestled at the base of the Teton Range. The event will be on August 22nd and 23rd, 2015 and will include a 30K mountain bike race on Saturday the 22nd and a trail running half marathon on Sunday the 23rd. The race will use the Arrow, Snotel, Phillip’s Canyon, and Phillip's Ridge trails, all of which have been maintained and or built with help from Friends of Pathways. There will be an after party each day in the town of Wilson at Owen Bircher Park with music, food, beverages, prize raffles, and awards.
Friends of Pathways is a local non-profit that focuses on promoting a complete pathway system, safer streets, and great trails in Jackson Hole. They have helped establish 33 miles of paved pathways, promoted “Complete Streets”, organized the Commuter Choice Challenge, funded a front country trail crew, and provided bike and ski ambassadors.
