Description

The course was designed to highlight the technical slickrock trails of Moab, the views of the Behind the Rocks Wilderness area, and the snow capped La Sal mountains.

The race will start at the 24 Hours of Moab and head north for a mile and a half to the Behind the Rocks trail. For 6.5 miles, continue south on Behind The Rocks trail. Once you get to, White Knuckle, a very steep technical section at around mile 8, turn left.

After turning left run for 2.5 miles until Kane Creek. Turn left onto Kane Creek and follow it for less than a mile until you reach the aid station.

At this point, you'll continue on Kane Creek until the finish line.
