  • Saturday 6-6:45am for the 6 hour morning event

Results from the four categories (3, 6, 12 and 24 hours) will be sorted first, by number of laps and second, by total elapsed time. Only full laps will be counted when finished within the allotted time period.

Note, the 3 and 6 hour events are run in multiple heats, so in order to be the overall winner, you must run more laps faster than all the runners in each heat.

Once again, we are using OpenSplitTime for event timing. Updates posted every few minutes to OpenSplitTime.org. Runners must check in with a timer when starting a lap, at the summit checkpoint and when completing a lap. 


Runners must inform event timers or a race director when they have complete their last lap. 



The Base Aid Station will be fully stocked with fruit, snacks, chips, pickles, candy, pretzels, cookies, hot chocolate, coffee, coke, ramen soup, miso soup, quesadillas, hash browns and bacon.  The electrolyte drink is Gnarly Nutrition of both low calorie and regular calorie mixes.

The summit checkpoint is not an aid station, but just a check point. Runners must carry enough food water for the 7.5 round trip loop. 



Flushing bathrooms are available at the trailhead and adjacent to the Base Aid Station (Pavilion).  No bathrooms are available on the trail. 



The only cutoff time is leaving the pavilion with no less time than it took to complete your last lap.  For example, if your last lap took 2 hours  to complete you will not be allowed to leave the Aid Station after 4:00 PM Saturday.

All runners need to notify the Aid Station timer upon finishing their final lap in the allotted time. If a runner chooses to stop early, they also need to let the aid station captain that they are done. From this point they are on their own and may choose to hang around the aid station to cheer on other runners or head home.


Pacers are not allowed for any event.  The only exception is for runners 70 years old or older.  



No dogs on the course during the race. Dogs are welcome at the Trailhead but must be kept on leash.


There is plenty of parking at the Rock Canyon Trailhead, although please carpool, walk or bike to the event if possible.

Note: The events are held at the Rock Canyon Trailhead and not Rock Canyon Park.
