This scenic wilderness trail run is on a gravel jeep road from Beatty, NV through the picturesque Titus Canyon, finishing in Death Valley (entire run is in Death Valley National Park). The desert is beautiful this time of year with mild temperatures; lows at night between 30 and 40 degrees and highs during the day from the low-60s to mid-70s. This is our most spectacular trail event of the year and well worth the weekend away. Truly, an experience you won’t forget.

The event is limited to 250 total participants (due to National Park Service rules) and sells out months in advance so don’t wait too long to register!

IMPORTANT: In the 30+ years that we’ve produced this event, nature has forced us to run an alternate course outside the canyon five times and cancel the race completely three times. By signing up for this event, participants acknowledge the possibility of a last-minute course change or cancellation, and agree to run the alternate course (if able) or, if not, agree to abide by the rules set forth by the Death Valley National Park Service (i.e. if the road through Titus Canyon is posted as closed, registered participants of this event must abide by the closure as any other park visitor).

Registrations are 100% NON-REFUNDABLE, even in the case of a cancellation, but a credit toward a future race will be given if the race is cancelled.
