Ready for this intense challenge?! As an Elite Runner, you race against the clock as you chase a defined 20 mile course conquering all 4 peaks! All finishing times will be published!
Begin your adventure at the church campus and head south to the Sunrise Mountain trail head. Start heading up the hill. When faced with choices o this hill choose the right-hand direction. Run around the west side of the first hill and head up to the top of the middle hill. Relax as you head down, and then run along the ridge towards the third mountain. Run the circumference of the 3rd peak on Sunrise and smile for a picture before you head back to the Saddle after the ridge. Enjoy the zigzag down to the right and complete hill #1 back at the church campus.
Continue to WestWing Mtn at the 4 way stop and begin your 2nd hill at High Desert and Herrera. Head up the hill and run along the front side (SW side) of WestWing until you reach the end. Here is where you start your trek to EastWing Mtn. Follow the trail markers to the fence line on the North side of Rock Springs community. There will be a patch of rocks to navigate, but there will be markers too! Continue to 75th Ave and follow the markers to the back side of EastWing Mtn. When you join the path, stay to the right until you get to the ‘difficult to Top’ marker and head left. Smile for a pic before heading back the same way you came, to the back side of WestWing! This part is tough but the worst is over so you can smile again for picture #3!!
Head back down the hill…back to the 4 way stop at WestWing Blvd and run west towards Lake Pleasant Blvd. At the lights, head North to the underpass and head West following g the markers to 99th Ave. Head towards the Calderwood Butte trail head about 1/2 a mile south. Head up the hill and along the ridge to the top! Smile before heading around the North side and back the way you came: North on 99th Ave and back to State Land, under Lake Pleasant and your last mile to the finish line!!!
