Thanks to everyone who came out to this year's 12 Hours of Summit Suffering! Y'all came, y'all climbed for 12 hours straight, and you guys sure as sh#* conquered!
Congrats to Dalan Faulkner and Sean Vallefuoco of team "12 Hours of Sean Sweating" for winning the overall award, and receiving free entry to the 24 Hours of Horseshoe Hell competition on Sep. 23rd!
And another congrats to Team Holden Onto, for winning our hashtag contest with this dramatic, artistic Insta post.
Our costume contest was pretty close - a lot of you guys came in some pretty sweet get-ups, so we let the crowd chose their favorites!
Aaaaand in first place, was the very scantily clad team Crag Queens!
In a very close second was team Alright, We'll Call it a Draw, who deserve a round of applause for how much time and effort they put into their costumes. I mean, those things were IMPECCABLE.
And finally, in third place was team Danger Noodles, who pretty much nailed it.
And here's what you all have been waiting for! Route totals and distances, as well as placements! Bear with us with the numbers- we had a LOT of scorecards and data to sort through so there might be some discrepancies!
Shout out to Truman Stein for making the most amount of ascents, at 405! Dang, dude!
All in all, y'all ascended 371,433 feet! Which is 70.34 miles! So ... that's nearly 124 El Caps, 13 Mount Everests ... or all the way from Carrollton to Lake Texoma.
We had TEN people make the mile-high this year, which is ridiculous. Props to these folks for climbing over 5,280 feet in 12 hours! Here they are, in no particular order:
1. Dalan Faulker
2. Lan Le
3. Canon Huse
4. Tucker Black
5. Mario Stanley
6. Truman Stein
7. Jarrod Krebs
8. Rebecca Burgmeier
9. Niko Romero
10. Addison Kim
There were 112 abs classes and 111 yoga classes taken - that is about 56 hours of each class, or just over 4.5 days of fitness classes!
Congrats to anyone who won one of these — they were made with a lot of love!
And last but definitely not least, a giant thanks to all of our sponsors — without you guys those whole thing would never have been possible!
