Course Info - Kyhv Peak

May 31- June 1st, 2024

Kyhv Peak Course

 

Note: Due to construction at the trailhead the Start/Finish area and base aid station is being move to Rock Canyon Park (pavilion 4). The park is located approximately 0.2 miles to the north west of the normal Start/Finish area.

Running Up for Air (aka RUFA) Kyhv Peak is a 3, 6, 12 and 24-hour spring endurance challenge that takes place within Rock Canyon and summits Kyhv Peak east of Provo, Utah. Each “lap” starts and finishes at Rock Canyon Park located at 2620 N 1200 E, Provo, UT. Parking is available at the park but we encourage participants to carpool, walk or bike to the event.

The race begins at the pavilion by the Rock Canyon Park, continues up Rock Canyon for approximately 1.9 miles, then forks left for 2 more miles to the Kyhv Peak summit. A small summit check point awaits at the top. Follow your footsteps (likely in snow) back down to the base station. Each lap is approximately 7.8 miles long, with 2,800’ of elevation gain. Repeat this route as many times as possible.

This is an open course and the trail must be shared with other trail users on foot.  Please be courteous to other trail users.
