EVENT CANCELED DUE TO COVID-19

Sadly, due to current Covid-19 trends we have had to once again close some of our events, including the 2020 Corral Canyon Trail Scramble. We want to thank everyone who had already signed up and wanted to get back on the trails.

We are still continuing to work with the state and local guidelines to open fun, healthy events as soon as we can. In the meantime, while we wait for our larger events to reopen, feel free to check out our Patreon page at www.patreon.com/epicrecess to get access to trails we are marking for personal use on your own time.

Please stay safe and stay aware of what we can all do to help everyone stay safe together. Thank you.

 

 

----- EVENT CANCELED DUE TO COVID-19 -----

The Courses

The Corral Canyon Trail Scramble is being staged at Corral Canyon Campground in the Cleveland National Forest. If you are interested there is camping available on site. Please check out the USFS website for info. After the campground parking is full we will have overflow parking at Four Corners and shuttle you to the starting line campground. All 3 races will start at 5:00 pm. This an evening event with the possibility of lasting past sunset for those on the longer courses, so headlamps will be necessary for anyone participating in the 9 and 14 milers. There will be aid stations on the course and refreshments at the finish line. All 3 courses have rocky areas, sandy footing in some places, and a bit of fire road. The courses will be well marked with ribbon, flour, and signs, as well as some volunteers giving directions and encouragement.
It's time for Recess, come out and play!

 

5 Miler
The 5 mile loop leaves Corral Canyon Campground and will go up and over some big rocks for about 3/4 mile. That's where the scramble part comes in. Then it becomes technical trail downhill before making a right hand turn onto a smooth jeeping trail. This part is fun! You'll eventually make a right turn and follow the dirt road back to Corral Canyon Campground and the finish line.

 

9 Miler
The 9 mile course starts down a forest access rd. After about a mile and a half you'll make a left hand turn onto some really fun OHV trails! Eventually hitting another dirt road and making a left, you'll head onto some single track trail where uphill, rocky obstacles will get you to scramble. Eventually when you get to the end of this trail you will make another left and it's downhill trail for another mile and a half to the finish line.

 

14 Miler
If running the 9 miler isn't enough, head out and try 5 mile course afterwards before you hit the finish line! Woo hoo!
