2017 Race July 29-30
New race director as of 2016!! Awesome trail races in western Colorado: high elevation, great scenery, great singletrack, along with a relaxed and fun atmosphere!
Local time: 4:02 AM
Come enjoy some good old fashioned Colorado mountain trail races run at high elevation! You will love the terrain: It varies from technical rocky climbs, fast flowing forest track, remote off-trail sections, and as much awesome single track as possible! Wildflowers, wildlife, alpine meadows, endless lakes and streams, pine and aspen forests with views galore! The average elevation is 10,000', the highest point (and greatest views) for each race is the rocky summit of Crag Crest at 11,200'.
The races take place on the uncrowded West Slope of Colorado (between Grand Junction & Cedaredge) on the Grand Mesa which is known as the largest flat-topped mountain in the world. Come see why the West Slope is the Best Slope!
We have 4 race distances to satisfy all sorts of running needs: 100m, 50m, 55k, 30k!
