Stage #1 Round Valley Rambler – June 16, 2018:
This 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 7100′. While athletes will find the trails foot-friendly, the rolling, high-desert terrain presents a few long and steady climbs followed by fast downhills.
Stage #2 Jupiter Peak Steeplechase – July 14, 2018:
This is a Park City favorite 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!) A 16-mile loop from Park City Mountain Resort (7,000′) to the top of Jupiter Peak (10,000′) and back down.
This year the course has been rerouted at mile 26 where you will take a left onto the service road for a downhill to flat cruise to the finish at the base of the 120 mete Olympic Nordic Jump – NO MORE UPHILL FINISH.
The new race course begins at Silver Lake/Deer Valley, where it follows the iconic Mid Mountain Trail for nearly 20-miles, to it’s terminus. There is one last uphill push before a long, winding descent down through the Utah Olympic Park trail system, with an epic finish at the base of the 120 meter, Olympic Nordic jump. The course rolls across the Wasatch Back, through aspen and evergreen forests, at an average elevation of 8,200′ and 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.
