The 15K starts by taking the JHMR running trails (Saratoga Trail) across the hillsides until you connect with the Wildflower Trail at the Casper Chair Lift. This junction will have an aid station. Zip down the Wildflower Trail and descend the switchbacks until reaching the finish line.
15K Runners will gain ~1,800 FT. over the first 5-6 miles and descend the same amount in the last 4 miles. This is a great beginner option for those who don't want to reach the elevation or distance of the 30K.
The course will be marked with RED flagging, caution tape, chalk and more.
The 15K race is capped at 200 runners. Registration will close once this cap is reached, so we encourage you to register early.
There will be 1-2 cupless aid stations along the 15K course. Aid stations provided will be administered with as little contact as possible and set in areas where social distancing guidelines can be implemented. All stations are cupless.
*We reserve the right to make adjustments or changes to aid station locations and operations if COVID-19 guidelines require us to for 2021. The number of aid stations may be limited.
