Overview

A scenic yet challenging course that makes for a memorable first time ultra or a great outing for more seasoned ultrarunners.

Runner Notes

Put on in cooperation with USFS Prescott National Forest, Yavapai County Trail Association, and the City of Prescott.

Description

The 60 kilometer trail run (formerly 57K) runs a point-to-point singletrack from Thumb Butte Day Use Area to Watson Lake along the Prescott Circle Trail in Prescott, Arizona. Runners head first through dense ponderosa pine forests, past lakes, and climb to to high desert grasslands that open to sweeping views of the mile high Arizona landscape. A challenging and scenically diverse ultra marathon, this is a dream for first time ultra trail runners!
