Joe Flores: 24-HOUR FINISHER 2017 3-Peak Challenge

Back to the 3-Peak Challenge Finishers Page

About Your Experience:

"This was my first year running the 8000m challenge and I have to say, it has been a privilege to be on Adventure 16's rookie team. I was really excited to try out 2 different pair of shoes that we sell, the Lowa Aerox and the Salomon Speedcross. I can now describe to my customers how these 2 shoes feel first hand, and hopefully point them to the right direction with their shoe purchase. I also have never hit the mental barrier named "The Wall" until I reached near the peak of San Gorgonio. I, at the time was not thrilled to experience "The Wall" but now that I look at it in hindsight, I am glad I overcame "The Wall" and continued to push forward with my team. I am willing to take the challenge again next year."

Challenge Highlight:

"My challenge highlight has be the trail of headlamps I saw behind me on the Baldy trail at 5am as the sun was rising."
