Course Description:

The goal of these races is not to be hard but to be scenic, fun and safe. The 50k consists of a single 14 loop and then a lollipop. The half marathon is a lollipop route, and the 50 miler is the 50k course, but with another lollipop off that course. The 5 mile will be a beautiful route thats a lollipop with roughly 600ft of gain - this is NOT a flat run! The 50k and 50 miler consist of mainly rolling hills with a few 200-500 ft climbs, and of course the plunge down to the bottom of the canyon and back! Expect 7500 ft gain on the 50 mile, 4500 ft gain on 50k and 2300 ft gain on the half. You will pass massive waterfalls, jaw dropping open views of valleys, and a sunrise as far as you can see into the horizon! The half marathon is tough with all the beauty and hardship of the 50k / 50 mile course in one. It’s totally worth it and features a plunge down to the bottom of the canyon and back up. BRING YOUR CAMERAS!
