WHAT PEOPLE SAY
I signed up for Snowbasin in early 2019. I was turning 50 later in the year, and I wanted to do something meaningful for myself. Aside from one 5k run for charity, I had never participated in a sports challenge so I was full of fear, self doubts and some extra pounds. Luckily I had Jarrod Marrs by my side. Over the course of 5 months we met 3 or 4 times a week where he patiently taught me everything I needed to know: strength training, building endurance, footwear and other equipment, nutrition, hydration, breathing, and most importantly, how to harness the power of a positive mind and attitude. I entered the event with confidence and determination, and without the extra pounds, and I Everested in less time than I expected. I left the mountain a better and stronger person, and I now apply Jarrod’s teachings in many areas of my daily life.
Jarrod has been my trainer for 5+ years and I recommend him to all my friends and family. He has prepared me for multiple endurance events, including swim-runs, marathons, and 29029. He has always taken into account my short term and long term goals and tailored his workouts and nutritional planning to meet my goals. He is very engaging, motivating and well versed in his training methods; all while keeping the workouts fun and entertaining and non-repetitious. He has prepared me to become a new person based not only on my physical abilities, but also my mental strength and perseverance. I am very happy I met Jarrod and am excited to have him as a coach in Whistler.
Frequently Asked Questions
How does this coaching differ from the 20 week training guide that is included with the registration fee that I already paid for?
The 20 week training plan that all 29029 participants receive is a trusted and proven way to get ready to conquer the mountain that starts about 5 months out from each event. 1-on-1 coaching is for athletes looking for longer-term training plans and individualized plans that account for their specific situation.
Will my coach prescribe a plan that accounts for my limitations, lifestyle, and preferences?
Absolutely. Your coach will create an individualized plan just for you that synthesizes any limitations you have, schedule availability, and any other goals and preferences you have.
When does coaching start?
Your coach will reach out to you within 48 hours of registration to set up your kickoff call and get you moving!
How will my coach and I communicate?
You’ll be able to text and email your coach whenever, as well as monthly 1-on-1 live video calls. You’ll also be set up with a premium TrainingPeaks account for tracking your progress.
When will I receive my gear/swag? What exactly am I getting?
We’ll be sending you hiking poles and a headlamp for night hiking, as well as a box of 29029 apparel. More details to come.
What’s up with the June ‘training’ event entry?
There will be a new, yet to be announced, 12-hour endurance hiking event at Snowbasin in Utah in early June. 29029 participants that sign up for 1-on-1 coaching prior to March 2022 will receive a free entry ($800 value). This will be an excellent opportunity to test your progress. Coach Brent will be at the event so this will be a chance to meet and hike together in person! Travel and accommodation at this event are not included.
