Nolan’s 14 is also known as the Mount Everest of Ultrarunning. That pretty much says enough. But if it doesn’t, there’s a film made to prove it.
Nolan’s 14 is a 100 mile route through the heart of the Colorado Rockies that traverses 14 14,000 foot peaks, hence the name. Only a handful of people have ever completed it within the 60 hour cutoff time. It is not a race though. Anyone may climb the Nolan’s 14 route at any time of year, and these records will be recognized. The object is to climb as many 14ers as you can, traveling on foot, within the 60 hours time limit. You may complete the summits in any order and may use any route you want (on foot) between summits.
