Race Information

Experience the beauty of the winding Sonoran Desert trails in the shadow of Arizona's Bradshaw Mountains. The course is point-to-point with net elevation loss, but this is a tough and taxing course and the majority of elevation gain comes in the second half of the course.

Challenge yourself and join the annual Black Canyon 100K! The course runs along the non-motorized Black Canyon National Recreation Trail featuring a mixture of single-track trails, jeep roads, and pieces of an old stagecoach route. The Black Canyon Trail is located on Bureau of Land Management land and is overseen by the Black Canyon Trail Coalition. In addition, there's also a point-to-point 60K starting in Spring Valley and finishing at Black Canyon City.

Double your desert adventure by taking the 100-Mile Challenge -- take on the 100K on Day 1 and the 60K on Day 2 of the event! Finishers receive a custom finisher and buckle display.
