Race Information

Are you looking for a unique challenge? The Palm Springs Aerial Tram Road Challenge 6K Run/Walklk is unlike any event you have ever done. For over 30+ years people from around the world have been coming to Palm Springs in October to take on this challenge, which starts at 400' elevation and climbs to over 2,600' elevation. It is not your typical weekend 5K and completing this event is something you will remember forever.

With over 1500 participants each year, ranging in age from 5 to 95, this challenge is one that most can do with little training. Whether you walk or run or a combination of both, you certainly earn the custom finisher medal and t-shirt you will receive at the finish line located at the lower tram station. At the finish line we have refreshments, vendor expo booths, awards, prizes and buses to bring you back down the hill (or, if you're up for it, walk down instead). Dogs are welcome with their own water bowls at the three fluid stations on the course.
