1/2 MARATHON REGISTRATION
Early Bird Registration is now open!
Ready for this intense challenge?! As a 1/2 Marathon Runner, you race against the clock as you chase a defined 13.1 mile course conquering 3 long peaks! All finishing times will be published!
Begin your adventure at the church campus and head West along the north side to West Wing Mountain. Cross West Wing parkway at the four-way stop onto High Desert to the trailhead at the corner of Herrera. Run along the trail through the community and head up the hill to the saddle. Continue to the top on the backside of West Wing. Smile for your picture and continue with care down the rugged backside of West Wing Mountain. As you begin to wrap around to the front, make a hard left. Here is where you start your trek to East Wing Mountain…
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 front side of WestWing!
Head back down the hill. Back to the four-way stop at West Wing Parkway. Cross back to the north side of the church and to the side walk through the park towards West Wing school. The trailhead for Sunrise Mountain is just before the school. Begin heading up the hill.
When faced with choices on 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 your final hill in the grassy bowl to the south side of the church campus in the park!
