Race routes integrate some beginner, but mostly intermediate levels of single-track trails, dirt and gravel roads. The venue of the San Juan National Forest could not be more perfect as athletes trek through aspen groves, grassy fields, and old logging roads. The improved courses are sure to test your endurance, speed and ability.
