Overview

The series finale is not the event to miss. With lots of climbing, river crossings, sandy beaches, and endless singletrack, this course has something for everyone.

Description

This is a point-to-point half marathon course. The race starts off of Table Mesa Road and follows the Black Canyon Trail to Black Canyon City and Rock Springs Cafe. Along the way, there are 4 aid stations, although it is strongly recommended that runners carry additional water. Along the singletrack route, runners will encounter lots of climbing, sandy beach sections, and river crossings.
