Race Location:

Cache Creek to Game Creek Trail is an epic trail run with a 43 year old history!  The Start is below Snow King's upper parking lot. Park there and walk down to the start.  Join us at the dead-end portion of Cache Creek Dr. (no parking at the start).  The race heads out Cache Creek Dr.  to  Cache Creek  and up to the Game Creek bridge.  Orange soccer cones and orange tape on trees mark the way. There will be a right hand turn across the bridge to the pass and down to Game Creek . Limited parking at the finish.  We encourage locals to carpool pick ups.  There will be a shuttle van or timing truck taking runners back to parked cars at the upper lot of Snow King. 

We typically hand out the awards and refreshments at the GAME CREEK FINISH.  We are working on a rendezvous after party for those that want to hang out together in Jackson on Saturday afternoon. And, a do it on your own Triathlon on Sunday called TRI the WEST.  

The Teton Mountaineering Cache Creek Trail Run race covers approximately 11 miles or 18 k in the picturesque Bridger-Teton National Forest. The race begins  gathering in the upper Snow King Resort’s parking lot around 7:00am and walking down to the start.( A porta pottie will be at the start and another at the finish.)  From there the course proceeds east, up Cache Creek, then climbs up Game Creek Divide (elev. 7,400 ft.) and down Game Creek to the south and west. Total elevation change is roughly 1,400 feet.

Accommodations:

The Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce can help answer questions regarding lodging and the wide variety of recreational
opportunities that Jackson Hole, Grand Teton National Park and nearby Yellowstone National Park have to offer. (307) 733-3316 Monday – Friday, 8 am – 5 pm MST.  Plan ahead.  This is a heightened and busy time of the tourist season.  But it is also the best time to run through this area.  The wildflowers are awesome!

Aid Stations:

2 water stations are provided along the course. However, due to the back country location and rugged nature of this race, racers are encouraged not to depend on these stations as their sole supply of water. Bring your own water bottle or runner's vest to be sure!
Backcountry Etiquette: Runners using food packets, etc. during the race are reminded to carry out all their own trash. Conscientious backcountry travel ensures future access for all of us who enjoy the National Forest Service lands.
