Overview

Join us and cooler weather on December 15 for the 3rd XTERRA race of our series on the Competitive Loops at Estrella Mountain Regional Park. Consisting almost entirely of singletrack, the 8k and 20k courses will challenge beginner and experienced trail runners alike.

The courses begin at the park's competitive loops. NOTE: not the main park entrance, see directions). Both courses are based at the competitive loops off of Avenida Estrella south of ISM Raceway (Formerly PIR). There are two (or three) major hills and a quite a few twists and turns as the course winds through the valley desert. You finish the last half mile with a wide descent to help propel you across the finish line.

All participants will receive a huge post-race breakfast, a super cool race tee and finisher medal, as well as entry into fun post-race festivities.

Need to Know

Do not go to the main park entrance—go to the competitive track.
