Mt. Evans Ascent
Intermountain Repeater Group provides radio communications in support of the Mt. Evans Ascent foot race, happening this year on June 9th. A portion of the entry fees for this race is donated to Alpine Rescue.
IRG operates our portable repeater station at the summit, and club members man the aid stations along the race course to relay information about the progress of the runners, and call for assistance when needed. We also have a mobile station driving the course to provide communication from any point in the race.
Cystic Fibrosis Cycle for Life
IRG also supports the Cystic Fibrosis Cycle for Life bicycle race, this year on August 18th. Our radio operators provide communications at the start/finish line, and at the aid stations along the race course.
Note that this year, the Cycle for Life is moving to routes around the NOAA Table Mountain Facility, and up Lefthand Canyon.
