The North Face Presents ‘The Crown Traverse’ in Chicago


The North Face presents an evening with professional ultra runners, Mike Foote and Mike Wolfe, at Café Brauer at Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago, IL on Wednesday, August 9. As part of The North Face Never Stop Exploring Speaker Series, Foote and Wolfe will lead a short group run, share their video The Crown Traverse and lead a live discussion on their ultra-running experiences followed by a Q&A session.

The film highlights The North Face Athletes and professional ultra runners Mike Wolfe, Mike Foote, along with National Geographic Photographer Steven Gnam, as they set out on a journey from Missoula, Montana, to Banff, Canada, traversing 600 miles north through the Crown of the Continent. Suffering through whiteout snowstorms, busted knees and bruised egos, the three undergo a quest to complete one of the most audacious running challenges to date.

Join The North Face and experience what it took to run cross the continent at a live presentation with Foote and Wolfe.
