Enjoy some of the best trails and scenery Davis County, Utah has to offer. The DC Peaks 50 is a point to point ultra marathon that will have you breathing heavy through a big smile. This 50 mile race is fun! It starts at East Mountain Wilderness Park in Kaysville and takes you on an adventure of trails (71%), service roads (24%), and 2.5 miles of paved road. You’ll hit a sweet climb on the Great Western Trail, go through some of the most popular hiking trails in Mueller Park, and end at Tunnel Springs Park in North Salt Lake. We guarantee it beats lying on the couch all day! It’s a tough course with approx 11,700’ of vertical gain and 8,637’ of descent - it’s designed to take you along trails with the best views in the area. The start line has an elevation of 4,888’. The average elevation of this race is 6,604’. This race was designed by ultra runners who felt Davis County needed a 50 miler. Many things make this course badass - A great course, fantastic people, live footage of the race on YouTube, and runner tracking that wasn’t invented in 1943 - See you kids in October!

Aid Station 1: Francis Peak
Net From Start: 6,000’
Continuing southbound on the service road, this puppy starts to get fast as you travel down the open road. Stay on the main road and bust it right down the canyon. After a long, can-be grueling, fast downhill run on the Farmington Canyon service road, you’ll arrive at our aid station. There is nowhere to go but straight.
No pacers allowed. There is driving access for spectators, but it’s a bumpy dirt road. Don’t drive your Tesla.
Aid Station 2: Farmington Canyon
Net From Francis Peak: -2,005’
Out of the aid station take a left (South) and head towards Bountiful Peak...home of the Brave. There is road access here for spectators. Same bumpy dirt road as Aid Station 1. No pacers allowed. Drive up Farmington Canyon Road for about 8 miles and you’ll see the aid station on the left.
Aid Station 3: Bountiful Peak
Net From Farmington Road: +2,025’
From here you’ll continue south on the service road to Parrish Creek Trail. Enjoy this 5.3 mile stretch. Very fun and very beautiful.
Aid Station 4: Zig Zag (Pacer start)
Net From Bountiful Peak: -4,666’
After that downhill bomb it will be nice to roll on the Bonneville Shoreline for a few miles towards the Bountiful “B”, then hit the road for 2.5 miles. This is a great place for family and friends to come cheer you on. Enjoy the small stretch of road and get ready for the ensuing climb. Crew: Pacers allowed. Must check-in. Access for spectators. Yes. 40.922747, -111.866443 This is the Parish Creek Trailhead in Centerville.
Aid Station 5: Mueller Park (Pacers start)
Net From Sessions: +641’
Gorgeous, heavily trafficked area, that will usually have runners, hikers, dogs, bikers, and possibly even horses or motorcycles on our trail. It’s a nicely groomed trail with lots of shade. This trail winds around through the trees up past Big Rock (Now called Elephant Rock) at 3.4 miles, but unless you take a small detour runners won’t be able to visit the enormous rock. The course will continue on a single track delight up to Rudy’s Flat.
Crew: Great access here. Full Aid Station. Last spot for pacers to join the dance.. Pacers must check in PRIOR to their racer arriving. All runners must LEAVE this location by 5:00pm. Parking: Small parking area before the fee booth, or along the road.
Pacers: This is where you kids will run with your peeps. 40.8639013, -111.8366743
Aid Station 6: Dude Peak
Full Aid Station:
Crew: tough to have your loved one visit you here, unless he/she is a real badass. And if that’s the case, they’re probably ahead of you in the race anyway.
Finish: Tunnel Springs
Net From Woodbriar: -177’
1080 Eaglepointe Dr, North Salt Lake, UT 84054
