Overview

A great course that follows the Arizona Trail and the historic Flagstaff to Grand Canyon Stage Line route with stunning views of the Painted Desert, Navajo Monument, and Grand Canyon.

Description

The race begins north of Flagstaff, Arizona, at the Flagstaff Hotshots Ranch off Snowbowl Road and finishes in Tusayan, Arizona, near the entrance of the Grand Canyon National Park. A majority of the Stagecoach course follows the Arizona Trail and the historic Flagstaff to Grand Canyon Stage Line route used by adventure seeking tourists between 1897 and 1901. Many of todays race-day aid stations are located at the original stage line rest stops and watering holes.

Course footing varies from singletrack to varying degrees of two-track and forest dirt roads. Runners pass from heavily vegetated ponderosa pine and alpine aspen forests to sparsely vegetated pinion-juniper grasslands and back again. The course starts at 7,400 (Hotshots Ranch), reaches a maximum elevation of 8,800 (at Aspen Corner, mile 6), finishes at 6,600 (Tusayan), and has approximately 7,000 of climbing.

Runners traverse over a shoulder of Arizonas highest mountain, Humphreys Peak, through the high alpine meadows of the Hart Prairie Preserve, across 422-square mile Babbitt Ranch, and along the Coconino Rim where views of the Grand Canyon, Painted Desert and Navajo Mountain await.
