BACK TO CIRQUE SERIES

SNOWBIRD

August 26th

Final stop of the Cirque Series brings us back to Little Cottonwood Canyon with a stop at Snowbird Resort.   The course brings participants up to Hidden Peak via Peruvian Gulch, to the base of Mineral Basin, before ascending Sugarloaf Pass on the way to Mt. Baldy. Runners will finish up just in time for live music, food, and drinks at Snowbird's Oktoberfest!

 

THE COURSE

The, 8.9 mile/14k, course with 3,599 ft of climbing starts on the Creek Road under the Tram at the base area begin running and head east towards the bypass road and connect into Chauner’s Loop and then head up the steep tight switchbacks of the Peruvian Gulch Trail. Turn onto the Ridge trail feel the burn in your legs with large sweeping views Snowbird’s Cirque and Mt. Baldy ending up on Hidden Peak with expansive views of the entire Wasatch Range. Catch your breath and loop around the backside of Hidden Peak and make your way down to Gorilla Pass and head straight up to the Summit of Mt. Baldy, the highest point in the race. Make your way down a steep and technical section of trail to Sugarloaf pass being sure to save enough energy for one more uphill section to the cool refreshing shade and air of Snowbird’s Ski through Tunnel. Now a final mix of dirt roads and single track for the final 3 mile stretch down Peruvian Gulch crossing over Rothman’s Way into Gad Valley for the final stretch down the Dick Bass Highway to the Finish Line.

Each competitor receives a Cirque Series hat, raffle ticket, & finisher medal.

Cancellation / Refund Policy:

The race organizers reserve the ability to cancel the event due to unsafe weather. Race organizers will make the best decisions when it comes to protecting the safety of all runners. This means we reserve the right to adjust, cancel, reroute, or reschedule as we see fit.

Because the bulk of our costs come before the event even occurs we will not be able to extend refunds to those who wish to cancel their registration. In the instance of mega wild weather we will assess things appropriately and fairly, to the best of our abilities. If the race is popular enough to create a waiting list, we will also treat your entry fairly with specifics TBD.

Race registration is non-transferable and cannot be rolled over to subsequent races, unless extenuating medical or life circumstances occur. We will always treat our community fairly but also ask that you be sympathetic about the realities of putting on a great event.
