Round Valley Rambler
The Round Valley Rambler is the first race in the Triple Trail Challenge. 100% of the course takes place on prime, buff single and double track in Round Valley, which sits at an altitude between 6,500' and 7,100'. While athletes will find the trails foot-friendly, the rolling, high-desert terrain presents a few long and steady climbs followed by fast downhills. The Round Valley Rambler is a stout trail half and serves as a reality check for athletes preparing for the Triple Trail Challenge sister races, the Jupiter Peak Steeple Chase and the Mid Mountain Marathon.

Jupiter Peak Steeplechase
Jupiter Peak Steeplechase will open February 1st. This is a Park City favorite presented by La Sportiva bringing elite athletes as well as weekend warriors to Park City from all over the country. With an elevation profile that resembles an inverted “V” (for vertical!) this race is not for the faint of heart! This race is also the second stop in the Triple Trail Challenge.

Mid Mountain Marathon
Presented by Salomon Running, the "New course" follows the Mid Mountain Trail, starting at Silver Lake/Deer Valley to its terminus, then winds down through the Utah Olympic Park trail system to finish at the bottom of the Nordic jumps at the Utah Olympic Park. The course, rolling across the Wasatch Back through aspen and evergreen forests at an average elevation of 8,200′, is largely shaded single-track. The Mid Mountain Marathon embodies the essence of mountain trail running with intermittent technical sections, a few sustained climbs and fast downhills. Voted best trail marathon in Utah, the Mid Mountain Marathon is a true trail runner’s marathon and is part of the Triple Trail Challenge.

Tour des Suds
Presented by Skullcandy, Tour des Suds is a 7-mile mountain bike climb starting at City Park. Go hard and treat it like a legit mtb race (yes, there are awards) or a crazy costume party on bikes. Either way, it’s 2,700′ of vert straight up to the finish line/Skullcandy Party Station at the top of Guardsman Pass. Sponsored by Park City Brewery, festivities continue down at the Town Lift Plaza with lunch (including beverages of the carbonated sort), a killer opportunity drawing, costume contest and awards. The Tour des Suds is the zaniest mountain bike party in the west!
