Peak Crushers Program is Open for 2022

The CMC is excited to announce year two of the Peak Crushers program. This program is aimed at competent runner-scramblers wishing to improve their speed and efficiency in higher altitudes and on ridges and those interested in the art of light & fast movement in the high peaks of Colorado. 

The program is open to the first 20 people who apply and meet the minimum fitness and competency qualifications, and can commit to attending most, if not all, of the sessions (while attendance will not be mandatory, the program is best taken advantage of through full completion of all sessions). The program runs May – September (dates below).

Program participants should:

  1. be able to run 5 miles on rough trail with a minimum average pace of 12-minute miles,
  2. be extremely comfortable with 3rd and 4th class terrain un-roped, and
  3. be familiar & comfortable with lightweight gear in the mountain environment.
