No matter the distance run, pristine red rock canyons and primal trails await! This race links several canyons, dry washes, remote sections of the Paiute ATV Trail system, and the brand new Pahvant Mountain Bike Trail System, into a unique experience. Run up a slot-like red rock canyon, trek atop a packed natural clay fin under colorful hills, power up and speed down remote trails, and catch great vistas along ridgelines.

The race is located in Richfield, Utah, just a 2 hour 35 minute drive South of the SLC International Airport.
