In 2023 we are starting the brand new DC Peaks 50K! The 50K is an awesome way to enjoy most of the beautiful trails that make up the 50 miler. This race starts off with a nice, tough climb to Bountiful Peak and then you come bombing back down one of our favorites trails called Zig Zag. You then finish the race like the 50 miler by making your way to Mueller Park and up our fan favorite trail towards the Jacob's Hill Aid Station and then down to the finish line at Tunnel Springs Park! If 50 miles isn't quite your cup of tea then come enjoy running these beautiful trails that make up the 55K!
