Here’s your chance to run in the wild west on the historic Pony Express Trail in western Utah. This is a 100 mile and 50 mile run. The course is remote and a support crew is REQUIRED to provide support along the way. The course is 100% dirt road and only has about 3,000 feet elevation gain/loss. Perfect for first-timers or personal records.
The course for both races will start at Lookout Campground west of Faust, UT. The 100-mile race will go out 58.5 miles to Fish Springs National Wildlife Refuge and then head back, finishing at Simpson Springs.
Local time: 5:47 AM
The 50-mile course heads the same direction but finishes at Blackrock Pony Express station site. The course is remote, but the roads are good if you don’t drive too fast. Crews are required! You must have a crew or share a crew with another runner. Usage of a map will be required, but the course is easy to follow. In general it is: “head west.” There are signs that point the way for the Pony Express Trail at major intersections.
