The Course

All 3 legs of the race course are the same. It is a wide fire road 6.6 miles out before turning around and heading back the same way you came, for a total of 13.2 miles. The first leg will be horse riding, followed by running, then mountain biking. There are some awesome hills and great views.

The fire road is very wide, and not very technical, footing will be good no matter what the weather brings. Aid stations will be plentiful along the course for athletes, and water and hay will be available for horses as well. A volunteer will be taking numbers at the turnaround to verify you made it

This race course is located in the Pine Creek Wilderness with permissions granted by the U.S.F.S. so be sure to respect the course and the surrounding lands.


For Friday night, you are welcome to camp on a private ranch where porta potties and potable water are available. The ranch is also the parking area for race day, and post-race activities - you will already be there! Corrals are available for horses also. You can sleep in your car, a tent , or your horsetrailer. Please call the race director if you are contemplating another option.

This year camping fees are waived! We want to make everyone feel welcome so be sure to plan ahead and avoid the race morning rush!

Camp will open at noon the day prior to the race.
