Competitors can enter into one of three categories: Sport, Expert, and Pro, with the latter being for professional runners.
There’s prize money for top finishers and sponsored award packs for unique categories like “middle of the pack”.
From their website,
The Cirque Series is redefining what mountain running is all about. Starting from the base of a world-famous ski resort, you’ll rally up windswept ridges and glacial cirques to towering peaks, power down a quad-burning descent, and break the tape into a festival of live music, food, drink, and vendor tents. The elevation is serious but the mileage is management, and the race is as hardcore as you want it to be–beat the pros down to earn legend status and cash prizes, or enjoy the views and let the challenge be its own reward.
