“Happy 2019 Everybody! Let’s start this year off by kickin’ our butts in gear with a healthy dose of challenge and friendly competition. Ruta del Jefe is on February 16 and registration opens January 9 a.m. MT.
Ruta del Jefe is a 125-mile self-supported adventure race following a variety of dirt, rocky, and sandy surfaces around the Santa Rita Mountains, the lair of El Jefe, one of only three North American Jaguars to remain in the U.S.
The ‘fun’ doesn’t stop there. We’ll be having a camp out the night before and the night after the race/ride and word on the street is @ultraromance will be cooking everyone a very special post-race dinner.
