Description:

The course starts at the base area of Purgatory Resort and follows single-track trails up the mountain to the top of Lift 8, the highest point on the mountain. The elevation gain is roughly 1800 feet. The course will be well marked and easy to follow. This is some of the most beautiful running terrain you will ever find!

Don’t be intimidated! While it sounds hard, this run is very doable. The trails are non-technical, and the grade is fairly steady throughout, making it easy to get into a nice rhythm as you run. Unlike other trail races that take you deep into the backcountry, in this race you will feel relatively close to civilization. Even when you are five miles out, you will be passing by Resort warming huts and ski lifts, and you will always be able to orient yourself back to the base area of the mountain.
