Chip Salaun was a world class triathlete, mountaineer, author and environmentalist, and co-founder of the “Frost Giant.” He devised the name, drew the original logo, laid out the course, pulled the trigger on the fist start, and was the catalyst behind the success of our mountain run. In late April of 1985, Chip vanished in the snow and ice of Mt. Cook in New Zealand. If the wind should blow, it will be his spirit challenging us, then pushing us to another adventure with nature and ourselves.
The Estes community and Frost Giant Run lost a dear friend, Katherine Bricker Kent, on July 15, 2000. As one of Northern Colorado’s most prestigious female runners, “Kate” was a multiple winner of Frost Giant Runs, three time Olympic Marathon Qualifying participant, co-founder of Kent Mountain Adventures with husband Harry, and mother to a son, Owen Kent. A portion of the proceeds from the Frost Giant Run will be donated to the Katherine Bricker Kent Memorial Fund and the Estes Valley Youth Activities Assistance Fund.
The 34th Annual Frost Giant will be held on Sunday, January 27th, 2013.
