RACE DESCRIPTION: 11k/4k Trail Run
4k(2.4 miles) Is a single track ravine trail that is a gentle out and back uphill and downhill.
11k(6.7 miles – 1400 ft gain) is an uphill then downhill trail loop showcasing the beauty of the Sagebrush Steppe and Rattlesnake Mountain. Includes a very tough ascent and descent of Rattlesnake Arm from mile 3.75 – 4.65 which ascends 660 feet over 0.45 miles. This portion is called The Mountain Goat Challenge where we see who can ascend that 660 ft the quickest.
