Overview

This XTERRA series finale is not the event to miss. Lots of climbing, river crossings, sandy beaches, and endless singletrack. The best part? Our after-race party is hosted at Rock Springs Café which means … DELICIOUS PIE!

Half marathon, 10k, or a 6k fun run. This course is awesome! If you've never been out here, be prepared for a treat. :) Shuttles will be provided to transport runners to the start line for the half marathon. Runners may use their own transportation to be dropped off at the start line; however, there will be no parking permitted at the Table Mesa Trailhead. There will be coffee, music, and a fire at the 13.1-mile start for those of you who take the earlier shuttles. First shuttle leaves at 5:30 a.m. Last shuttle leaves at 6:40 a.m.

The wildflowers will be blooming and the bar will be open! Join us for the series awards ceremony, have a drink, hang out in the creek, and enjoy the pie! 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.

Description

An upside-down lollipop starting and finishing at the legendary Rock Springs Café. Meander through Rock Springs to BLM 9925 for 1.5 miles. Turn around at the aid station and come halfway back before heading down to the river. Meet up with the Black Canyon Trail at the second aid station. One last climb and you'll be ready for pie.
