This race starts at the new Butterfield Trailhead Regional Park. Amazing area nestled right at the base of Butterfield Canyon with Kennecott Mine overlooking the area.

The first segment will be your most difficult. This segment will have it all, smooth single track, rocky steep climbs, ridges with great vistas, and densely wooded trails as you cruise down to the aid station.

After reaching Yellow Forks Aid you will begin your Moon ridge and Big Rock loop. A steep climb up moon ridge will soon have you back in the woods flying down some more amazing single track trails.

After reaching Yellow Forks for a second time you will head out on a steep and rocky Water Forks Ridge trail that turns into an equally steep single track trail. At the top you will be rewarded with great downhill running on the Butterfield Peaks Road. Don't let the word road fool you, this dirt road has no equal in scenery.

After your scenic downhill run to Yellow Forks Aid for the third and final time you will begin climbing up the incredible Yellow Forks Trail to reach the ridge once more using a new smooth single track trail to do so. From there you will enjoy these new single track trails all the way back to the finish line.

*We will have trail marshals, signs, and cones directing runners at the Yellow Forks Aid station due to this being the main hub. Makes it easy for your friends and family to cheer you on!

**Hydration vest or bottle REQUIRED. This course has 3 aid stations. This is due to the remoteness of the area. Butterfield Peaks Road does not allow vehicles or we would be all over that. This also lets us offer this race for less money. There will be trail marshals to ensure safety and course adherence.

Navigation

Course is well marked with pink flags, ribbons, signs, and trail marshals. The flagging will come before, during, and after the turn. This flagging will be on the same side of the trail as the turn. For example, a right turn will have flagging on the right side of the trail before and after the right turn.

We will only mark turns, trail changes or areas we feel need it. If you come to an intersection or see a trail branching off the main trail and there are no flags stay on the same trail and continue straight.
