Running The Grand Canyon-Rim to Rim to Rim 04/25 by The Natural Running Network Live | Sports Podcasts.

rim2rim.psdTrail Running is on the rise; one of the most epic challenges for an Ultra Trail Runner is traversing the Grand Canyon.  Listen as Vanessa Runs shares her journey from rim-to-rim-to-rim, running through one of the 7 great Natural Wonders of the World.

How long will it take?  Well, first of all, it’s not a race. It would be crazy to do this run and not take some time to enjoy the incredible scenery.  A mid-pack runner should plan on at least 13-15 hours.

It is a tough run, with a little bit of everything as obstacles: some rocky sections of trail, some exposure, two BIG hills, heat, cold, altitude (7000 feet at the south rim, 2600 feet at the bottom, 8000 feet at the north rim).

You will definitely feel like you’ve accomplished something when you finish.  And you will see the Grand Canyon as few have ever seen it!
