I ran the trail run today. It was well organized. Great weather, great scenery, great volunteers, great shirts, great medals, and an awesome time!

Course Description

The 8K is a Desert Trail Run starting and ending in Prospector Park. The course is mostly on dirt trail in the northern and eastern portions of the park that is undeveloped. The only elevation changes are where the course crosses dry washes, otherwise the course is flat. It should be considered relatively easy as trail courses go. There is no time limit for the 8K.

Aid Stations

For the 8K trail race there is one aid station that all runners will pass twice.

Aid stations are staffed by our tremendous volunteers without whom our event could not happen. Please thank them along the way.

Colthing Drop

Courtesy Clothing Drop: There will be clothing bag drop zone in Prospector Park for the convenience of the runners not wishing to return to their cars.
