It took 20 days for Adam Wirth to cover the 46 trails and 164 miles of the Teton Trails Challenge. He finished it July 23 to become the first person to complete the valley’s newest athletic endeavor, blending the well-worn paths throughout the mountains and technology that follows along on the those trails.
The challenge came together through organizers Cary Smith and Forest Dramis, who lifted the idea last year from a similar challenge in the Boise, Idaho, area.
To make it work in and around Jackson, Smith supplied a list of trails and the team of computer programmers, and global information system professionals from Boise got to work on mapping it out.
Using the social fitness network Strava to track miles and hikes, bike rides or runs completed, the challenge in Jackson was born.
Read about Wirth’s approach to the challenge in the July 31 Jackson Hole News&Guide.
