Fastpacking Trip

July 1 to July 4, 2017

Coordinator: Noel Tavan

Elevation Gain: 27000 feet
Round-trip Distance: 120 miles

More details to come. I would like to do a 4-day fastpacking trip with some mountain climbing here and there. Must be able to cover 20-30 miles per day at a slow jog or fast walking pace (~15 min/mi on flats) and carry your own equipment (shelters, sleeping bag, etc...). You must be familiar with your equipment. This means your pack must be light and comfortable enough to let your run with it. Typically, those weight between 10 and 20 lbs with food and water. First timers are welcome. If you are hesitant, we can go on a few trail run together to access your level of fitness.

Here is more info what fastpacking is

Here is the route I was thinking - out and back

Distance: 120 miles

Elevation gain: 27,000 feet
