Jared Campbell's Millwood 100

100 miles, 44,000ft of vertical climb, scrambling, bushwhacking and tons of beautiful singletrack

since i moved to salt lake city in january i've been hearing about the millwood 100. this is a dream 100 mile route that jared campbell put together. as a bad ass climber, mountain runner and backcountry skier i think he knows these mountains better than anyone. doesn't hurt that he grew up at the foot of the wasatch front.  he had shown me the route on a map a couple of times, but it wasn't until i saw this google map that it made any sense to me.

i've run or skied in a lot of these areas, but the majority i have yet to see. a few weeks before hardrock jared and ty draney tried to run the whole thing in 3 days.. but with "A" races coming up and 44,000ft of vertical gain it was just too aggressive. so when chad brackelsberg said he wanted to run the whole thing in 5 days it sounded like the perfect last push in my training for the wasatch 100 miler.  i took today off and am super excited to get started tomorrow a.m.  i'll chronicle each days route here on my blog.  here is the schedule chad put together (i added a mile to each day because of the mapping discrepancy).
