What Does it Take To Break The Grand Teton Speed Record?

Well, the short answer is: training. For recent Jackson Hole transplant Stephen Mulherin, chasing a vertical dream turned out to be tougher than anticipated. The 24-year old’s mission is pretty simple: run up hills and try to be the fastest one to do so. He balances life as a full-time river guide with 14+ mile runs after work and competing in the town’s many uphill races like the Rendezvous Hill Climb at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.
