All 3 races start at Expedition Island promptly at 6:30am at an elevation of 6100 feet. The first 2 miles are on paved city streets and the paved Green Belt along the river, (which is a walking path). You will head west on Flaming Gorge Way, then turn right on Wild Horse Canyon Road where the paved road will change to a graded dirt road and climb up the canyon for approximately 2 miles to the top of White Mountain that will plateau at approximately 7300 feet in elevation. You will then continue running along the rolling hills at elevations up to 7500 feet. The views from the top are stunning. Many runners bring pocket cameras. There are several herds of wild horses and other wildlife that can often be seen near the top of the canyon and along the course. This is a challenging course! As this is a high plains desert, there are no shade trees along the course, so be prepared for wind and temperature changes between the start and the finish. The course is up and back with turn-arounds at the halfway points of each race.
