The 10-Miler will start at the Head of the Rocks Scenic Overlook on Utah’s Scenic Byway 12 and end at the Escalante City Park in Escalante, Utah. Runners will enjoy one of the most amazing views in southern Utah while preparing for the race start! After a short uphill beginning, the course runs mostly downhill until Mile 5.5, where it levels out to a series of flat stretches and rolling hills. Like the marathon, the course runs first southwest, then northwest. You can check out the entire route by clicking here.
The course will be run in the westbound (right-hand) lane of Byway 12. Six aid stations are planned for the course in conjunction with the marathon aid stations.
Slickrock and canyon vistas grace the beginning of the course, which then traverses the Escalante Flats, high plateau terrain with constant views of the 50-Mile Mountain and Straight Cliffs against the unending sky.
Bib Fee: $50
