Travis Rolph is an old friend of mine. When he told me he was going to run the Grand to Grand Ultra race I must admit, I was a bit skeptical. That’s a lot of race for a first time out. But I also know that nothing stops Bad Travis. I mean, the guy’s got a posse. But I digress. He did it. The stories he’s told me about the race have been fascinating and I’m glad to say that he shared some of the experience with some other guys that I like, Adventure Operations Group.
At AOG our mission is to train for “beyond normal limits” mindset and performance. Drawing inspiration and influence from the Special Operations community, as well as other elite performers and outdoor athletes, we lead individuals and teams to accomplish more than they imagine possible by applying “SOF Focus”. The principles of SOF focus are grounded in the truths of Special Operations Warriors and in the mindset of constant preparation and improving capabilities that all elite performers possess.

The Grand to Grand ultra is a 7 day stage race that covers approximately 169 miles over an epic course.
