The course will take place almost entirely on remote dirt roads. It is a single loop course beginning at approximately 8,700 ft. and traveling above 9,500 ft. Climbs and descents are fairly mellow for a mountain race, but we promise it will be challenging. At least four aid stations will be on course complete with water, sports drink, and food.

 

The course will begin at Grand Park and go through the Town of Winter Park on King's Crossing, Forest Trail, and Vasquez Roads. The course will then head out on backcountry, dirt roads following Hwy. 7, 725, and CR 72. It will then finish on some beautiful trails at Grand Park.
