BEARTOOTH 27 TRAVERSE - Nate Bender
Tuesday, November 13th, 2018 6pm-8pm
at Imagine Nation Brewing - Missoula, Montana
Over four days this past August, Nate Bender completed the first successful traverse of all 27 of Montana's 12,000 foot peaks. The route covers 100 miles of mostly off-trail, rugged travel through the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness, and includes 48,000 feet of ascent. Nate had a dozen friends and family as a support crew, plus three good friends as pacers. This presentation explores how community and camaraderie can be such a powerful force in tackling ambitious, uncertain goals, as well as the preparation (training / nutrition / logistics, etc.) for such an endeavor.
Nate is a trail runner and mountain athlete based in Missoula, Montana passionate about the intersection of conservation, public lands, and moving quickly through the mountains. He is a Montana native and has a background in endurance & adventure running, from ultramarathons to a 100-mile double crossing of Zion National Park.
This presentation is free and open to everyone. Doors to "The Center" room open at 6:00PM. Seating limited- first come, first served!
