Valley Fire Closing
Due to the Valley Fire a lot of Horsethief Canyon will be closed for quite some time. I understand the stress such a fire places on the community and local habitat so I don't intend on using Horsethief for any events too soon.
As someone who lives in the affected fire zone I am grateful for everything the fire crews have done. Please take care of yourselves and each other. Thank you.
A warm evening start for a cool race finish!
The course is an out-and-back on a dirt Fire Road - mostly uphill until the turnaround then mostly downhill back to the Finish. A great course to come out and run a negative split! The fire road is very wide, and not very technical, footing will be good no matter what the weather brings. A volunteer will be taking numbers at the turnaround to verify you made it
This race course is located in the Pine Creek Wilderness with permissions granted by the U.S.F.S. so be sure to respect the course and the surrounding lands.
