HALF MARATHON

This half marathon offers all of the winding single track, scenic vistas and about 3000′ of elevation gain, all packed into a challenging 13 miles. There is a fair amount of climb in this race so make sure you have some hill training under your belt.

CUTOFFS (averaging 17:15/mile pace) will be in effect at:

Snyder AS (7 miles)– 2 hours
Summit AS (10.5 miles)– 3h 20m.

Even though we have aid stations at mile 2.5, 5, 7, 9, and 10.5, we are requiring everyone bring, at minimum, a water bottle that holds at least 20 oz. With varying temperatures in April, we always make sure that everyone has what they need on their person at all times.

10K RACE

This course might be one of the more difficult 10K races with a challenging 900′ climb up Dead Truck right from the start, a nice cruise along the North Loop, and a nice, soft descent to the finish when your legs are tired! There is an overall gain 1600′ over the 10K so bring your low gear! There is a 1-hour cutoff at the first aid station. If you don’t make it to the Boy Scouts within 1 hour (mile 2.5), you will be turned around.

5K RACE

The 5K course will be slightly revamped and features over 700′ of elevation to get significant trail and hill time beginners can really use. Now, all 5K runners will pass Dead Truck and turnaround at the top and head back to the finish on a nice, soft, sandy descent. This course is bound to give a new trail runner some confidence!

For all three races, be sure to spot the iconic dead truck as you work your way up Dead Truck Canyon!
