Top of the World: Day 2 at The Pursuit Series, New York

By: Pursuit Series + Save to a List

Nothing ventured nothing gained. Images and words from a day and night of outdoor adventure.

Cans of frosty Brew Dr. Kombucha helped adventurers stay cool in the humid Catskill summer. Runners tried the latest trail shoes from Merrell and swapped their low-profiles for the latest socks from Wigwam. 

High-up on Hunter Mountain would-be climbers tried their hands (and feet) at sending their first routes while the hydration experts and mixologists at GU whipped up “SanGUria”: a remarkably tasty concoction of diced GU and iced wine (thanks Kenwood!). 

Late in the afternoon attendees rode the lift to the summit of Hunter Mountain for a happy hour with an epic view by Melvin, Kenwood, and Titos. Some adventurous souls jumped in gnarly overlanding Jeeps and climbed their way to the summit.

Revelers played late, enjoying the cool nighttime air and the company of good friends, old and new.
