Grand Canyon 2022 Part 3 - Hiking out of the Canyon

After 3 enchanting nights at Phantom Ranch, we started very early our ascent out of the Grand Canyon. We decided to take the Bright Angel Trail route in part because it is less steep. Additionally the trail brought us through Havasupai Garden a beautiful oasis of green in midst of the try desert landscape. It also ended next to the Bright Angle Lodge, were we will spend the next few nights. Follow us on one of our toughest and most amazing hike.

Land Between the Lakes Trail Runs 2023

In 2023 The Late-Runners participated in the Land Between the Lakes Trail Runs. We were planning on running the full marathon, but had to admit that we were not ready yet and changed half way through to the 23km distance which we finished successfully. We also got the special award for running both the LBL and the Louisville Lovin' the Hills 6mi race.

Cades Cove Loop Lope 2023

This November the Late-Runners participated in the only race inside the  Great Smoky Mountains National Park, a 10 mile run along the loop in Cades Cove. The race offers beautiful views off the mountains and if you are lucky some animal encounters. With its steep hills, its one of the more challenging races we have participated in. We thank the Friends of the Smokies and the army of amazing volunteers for putting together this great event.

Late-Runners running the Kentucky Derby Festival Mini-Marathon 2023

Welcome back to the second of the back to back races on April 29th and 30th. Convinced by a friend of ours we though it would be a "good" idea to add this trail run after finishing successfully the KDF Half Marathon. So join us on this "relaxing" 3 hours "stroll" through Seneca and Cherokee park.


Thanks to all the volunteers who make this race possible
