Course Description

The ascent begins immediately, eventually winding through pines, rocky crags and cascading creeks. Its a shame the burn distracts so much from the beauty of the surrounding scenery. Its as breath taking as hyperventilating! Incidentally, this road destroys more brakes and transmissions than any other road in Utah! Yes, the infamous Pow Mow Road to Powder Mountain ski resort. If you’re a local, enough said. To describe this road as steep is deceptively understated.

Aside from all the race hype, don’t be put-off from participating in this one-of-a-kind half marathon. This is a serious feather in the cap. We invite all – young and old, male and female. There is no cut off time, so take your time.  We’ll keep your breakfast burrito warm!  You can do it! Just finishing is winning!  Are you tough enough?  Bring it on!
