Mount Carrigain is deservedly renowned for the fantastic views from its summit tower in the heart of the Pemi. We'll run up, spend a few minutes at the summit, and run on down before the afternoon is old. We'll cover about 10.6 miles and climb 3450 feet out-and-back. Our pace will be about 12-15 minutes/mile on easier terrain, slowing to a 20-minute power-hike on steep uphills or very technical sections. The priority is enjoying scenery and company rather than a hard workout. Some experience with trail running at or near this distance is required. Grades are mostly gentle but there is some gnarly footing. This trip will start early morning and finish in about 3 ½ - 4 hours.
Jon finished a round of the New England Hundred Highest just before heading off to the Southwest for four years. He's thrilled to be back in New England and working seriously on the winter 4000-footers. Other fun had in the meantime includes the Pikes Peak Marathon and a rim-to-rim-to-rim run of the Grand Canyon. Goal-oriented but interested in keeping things safe and fun.
