Need to Know
This is the September, 2021 42k race route.
The Mogollon Monster includes the advanced degree endurance race of 100 miles, with the addition of 105 Kilometer race and 42 Kilometer. The races navigate up, down, around and through the beautiful Mogollon Rim (Pronounced: mug-ee-yun or muggy-own by locals).
The Rim rises out from the earth 2,000 some feet for a span of 200 miles across Arizona and into New Mexico, defining much of the eastern part of the state. This Rim takes the race from elevations of 5,500 feet at the start to upwards of 7,900 feet at the top of the Rim, changing ecosystems along the way in distinct flora changes as the elevation changes switch the scenery from high Sonoran Desert to the largest contiguous Ponderosa Pine forest in the world.
