Course

The WILD Iris 5k/10k Mountain Run is an out-and-back race that starts from the climbers’ parking lot at Wild Iris on Limestone Mountain. It immediately climbs north on FR327 past the radio towers and then takes a steady descent to the turnaround at the halfway point. The rolling descent is beautifully framed by the Wind River Mountains to the west and Red Canyon to the east. The first of two aid stations will be at mile 1.5 (this is the 5k turnaround); this aid station will also be stocked for the return. The second aid station will be at the 10k turnaround. Aid stations will be stocked with water and sports drink.
 
2014 is the 6th year for the 21k, or half-marathon in length. The course follows the 10k route to its turnaround, then does a technical and “elevation intensive” 11k loop (includes one aid station). From here, runners rejoin the 10k course for the 1000' climb back up to the finish. This is an exceedingly hard race.
