8K Map 8K Desert Trail Run Map
I am so glad that I chose the LDM to run my first 10K. The views of the Superstitions at sunrise was amazing! I'll be back soon.
The 10K begins and ends in Prospector Park, and is an out-and-back over the last 3.1 miles of the Marathon course. The course is all on pavement, with broad freshly graded shoulders much of the way if you prefer to run on dirt. The route is relatively flat. The course includes a slight incline going out and decline coming back to the finish line. There is no time limit for the 10K, HOWEVER, walkers and slow runners should be aware of faster half marathoners approaching from behind and sharing the return lane; please be courteous.
There will be mile markers on the race course.
For the 10K course there are aid stations every mile with water at every aid station with Lemon Lime Gatorade at every other aid station. There are port-a-jons near every aid station.
Aid stations are staffed by our tremendous volunteers without whom our event could not happen. Please thank them along the way.
There will be clothing bag drop zone in Prospector Park for the convenience of the runners not wishing to return to their cars.
