Wild Idaho Loop

Team UltraPedestrian is back in the wild heart of Idaho to redeem themselves with the Wild Idaho Loop!

A map of the route can be found HERE. You can track their progress via their InReach satellite tracking page HERE. They will also be posting regular updates to the Team UltraPedestrian Facebook Page.

The Wild Idaho Loop is a roughly 550 mile route through some of the most remote Wilderness in the lower 48 states. The route links together the main Idaho Centennial Trail with the West Alternate of the Idaho Centennial Trail, the exception being the Gospel Hump Wilderness Alternate, which traverses even less-traveled ground.

In 2018, during the UP North Loop, Ras & Kathy were forced by encroaching winter weather and resupply issues to route around the Selway Bitterroot and Frank Church/River Of No Return Wildernesses, which had been intended as the crown jewel of the UP North Loop. Now they are back to immerse themselves in this vast wilderness.

Special thanks to Trail Butter for making this adventure possible!

Thanks also to the other companies who help make Team UltraPedestrian's adventures happen, including Gossamer Gear, Altra Running, Injinji Performance Toesocks, Seven Hills Running Shop, and Nathan Sports.

98 Days Of Wind: The Greatest Fail Of Our Life

On March 4th, 2017, Team UltraPedestrian set out to do that which had never before been done: a double thru-hike of the Grand Enchantment Trail. Through this collection of trail dispatches, video transcripts, journal excerpts, and short narratives their journey unfolds in a rapid-fire staccato stream-of-consciousness. Join Ras and Kathy while they push their minds, bodies, and relationship to the limits and beyond as they struggle to endure 98 Days of Wind.
