Event Description

The CB3P is a multi-sport, endurance race that spans the length of the Gunnison Valley, starting in Mt. Crested Butte and finishing in Gunnison, CO.  With an uphill/downhill ski leg, bike leg, and kayak leg the CB3P will take participants and spectators on an exciting tour that follows the valley’s spring runoff path.  Competitors start at Crested Butte Mountain Resort with an uphill/downhill ski race, then transition to bikes which will carry them south on Hwy 135. When competitors reach the banks of the Gunnison River at the North Bridge put-in (across from Garlic Mike's), they will transition to kayaks and paddle to the Gunnison Whitewater Park for a thrilling race finish.

Competitors can race as indivuduals (doing all 3 legs of the race solo) or as teams relay-style (each member of the team does one leg of the race).

Thanks, Tim!  I lived in Jackson for 7 years and participated in the PPP several times ... it was part of my inspiration for this race.  Fingers crossed this first year event is a success!

This is great. I once participated in the Pole, Pedal, Paddle in Jackson, Wyo. Downhill ski, cross-country ski, 20 mile bike, followed by kayak down the Snake River. I did the bike leg on a team. It was a blast. Good luck with your event!
