Overview

A newly imagined 50K from the Flagstaff Sky Peaks Mountain Trails for 2018.

Description

The Flagstaff Sky Peaks Mountain Trails' Aspen Dream 50K ultra marathon begins with a climb straight up the Arizona Snowbowl up to 11,500 feet on the western edge of the San Francisco Peaks then back down to the Humphrey's Yurt where the race began. From here, runners exit Snowbowl on the Aspen Loop linking up with the Arizona Trail heading northbound through some thick aspen forests down to the White Horse Aid Station.

From here, you'll climb back up, giving high fives to the other braves souls heading back to the yurt before taking the Arizona Trail southbound. Then the real work begins. One more lung-busting climb begins subtly at first, but becoming increasingly steep as you enter the infamous power line section just before entering back on the ski area.
