Race routes integrate beginner and intermediate levels of single-track trails, dirt and gravel roads. The venue of the San Juan National Forest could not be more perfect for athletes as they trek through aspen groves, grassy fields, and the dreaded rocky Piedra Stock driveway. The course is fast, testing each competitor’s endurance, speed and ability.
