Experience 3,566' vertical feet in 8.7 miles.
From Olympians to first-timers, come see what all the fun is about. The most beautiful challenge you will ever face - ages 8 - 82 have competed in this series.
The 8.7-mile course with 3,566 ft of climbing starts at Creekside base area, runs up towards Mid-Gad, then heads east onto Rothman Way, connecting you to the steep Peruvian service road on Peruvian Gulch Trail. Turn onto the Ridge trail and feel the burn in your legs with large sweeping views of Snowbird’s Cirque and Mt. Baldy, ending up on Hidden Peak with expansive views of the entire Wasatch Range. Catch your breath, loop around Hidden Peak's backside, go down to Gorilla Pass and head straight up to the Summit of Mt. Baldy, the highest point in the race.
Make your way down a steep and technical trail section, saving enough energy for one more uphill section to the cool refreshing shade and air of Snowbird’s Ski through Tunnel. Now a final mix of dirt roads and single track for the final 3-mile stretch down Peruvian Gulch, single track and roads, passing by Plaza Deck & the Mountain coaster, then into the Finish Line back in Creekside. The race course is located in the Salt Lake Ranger District, Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest.
