“From spines to pines! Run Arizona's classes 50K foot race from Lake Pleasant to the old mining town of Crown King!”— Jubilee Paige
Race - Mar 28, 2020
The first half of the race is on rolling, smooth dirt forest roads, and the back half is on rough four wheel drive jeep trail that climbs steeply up into the mountains. You'll watch Lake Pleasant grow smaller and smaller in the distance as the promise of cooler temperatures drives you forward.
The race starts at 1,700 feet elevation and tops out at mile 28.7 at 6520 feet elevation before a final 600 foot descent into the finish. This race is perfect for first time ultra runners who want to take on the 50K challenge and celebrate properly with beer, barbecue, and a live band at the finish!
