This is a difficult and beautiful race in the Bannock and Pocatello mountain ranges surrounding Pocatello Idaho. Previous editions of the race were known as the Pocatello 50 but due to course changes the event has evolved. The full course is 100 kilometers long (62.5 miles) with 12,700' of vertical gain and 12,700' of vertical loss. In 2013 there are three different solo race lengths: 100k (62.5 miles), 60km (actually 37.3 miles w/ 8,900' of gain), and 35 k (actually 21.3 miles w/ 5,100' of gain). See map below to see the different “legs” of the route. Note that the full 100k race runs all three legs, the 60km race runs legs 2 and 3, and the 35km race runs leg 3.
