Jalloween Run Party
Welcome to the 16th annual Javelina Jundred presented by HOKA ONE ONE. A unique and festive ultra unlike any 100 in the nation, the Javelina Jundred will test your endurance and challenge your sanity. Celebrate with us this "Jalloween" and experience the "party ultra" in 2018.
The 2018 event features an event within the event: Jackass Night Trail! A unique night race that grants participants a ticket to party at Jackass Junction! Put your party pants on and choose between a two loop 62 km or one loop 31 km. Invite your friends, crew, family and every runner you know to the biggest Jalloween Disco the desert has ever seen!
The 100 Miler is a 2019 Western States 100 Mile Endurance Run Qualifier & the 100 Miler and the 100 Kilometer are 2019 UTMB Qualifiers (4 Points).
The course is a five loop format with the start/finish area staged out of the Four Peaks Staging Area (Javelina Jeadquarters). Loop one will be 22.3 miles and include the Shallmo, Pemberton and Escondido Trails. Loops 2-5 will be identical at 19.4 miles including parts of the Cinch, Scenic, Pemberton and Shallmo Trails. Trails feature rolling single track through the Sonoran Desert. Run past giant Saguaro Cactus, granite boulders and dry wash-beds as you tour the most popular trail of McDowell Mountain Regional Park. 100 kilometer runners will compete the first three full loops of the 100 Mile course.
Loops are run “washing machine” style, meaning each is reversed allowing you to keep an eye on the competition, see your friends and meet other runners all day and night.
Each loop features a gentle 600 foot climb from the start/finish at Javelina Jeadquarters to the high point near the foothills of the McDowell Mountain range. The trail dips in and out of wash beds on the far side of the course before descending back to the start finish. The trail is a mix of hard packed granite, rocks and sand.
