Black Canyon Ultras
Experience the beauty of winding Sonoran Desert trails in the shadow of the Bradshaw Mountains. The course is point-to-point with net elevation loss.. but do not be fooled: this is a tough and taxing course with the majority of elevation gain coming the 2nd half. Challenge yourself in 2019 and join us for the 5th annual Black Canyon 100K! The course runs along the non-motorized Black Canyon Trail (a National Recreation Trail) featuring a mixture of single track trail, jeep roads, and pieces of an old stagecoach route. The Black Canyon Trail is located on Bureau of Land Management land and is overseen by the Black Canyon Trail Coalition. In addition we offer a point to point 60K starting at Mayer High School and finishing at Black Canyon City.
Anything else you may need to know is located on our Black Canyon Ultras website! Information on the website includes: course maps, aid station chart, pacer & crew information, race perks, and more.
Race entries are non-refundable and non-transferable. For other options, please check out our Race Withdrawal Policy.
