This is a big loop around Lake Pleasant – almost 60 miles. It will include some trail, some dirt roads and some other stuff. You may have to get slightly creative with routing on the north end of the lake – depending on lake levels. Same with riding along the Agua Fria. Could be “interesting” if the river is high.
December 7, 2019 – 7:30am
We are changing the start location from last year’s ride – to avoid the sand pit of death. We’ll be gathering in the Park and Ride in Anthem (Daisy Mountain Dr and N Parker Ct). Google Maps link here: https://goo.gl/maps/9vUAMwHjMaD2
Water is available at about 18 and 20 miles in – on the west side of Lake Pleasant. After that you can probably filter from the lake or the Agua Fria (unless it is dry).
As always, it is HIGHLY recommended that you bring, and know how to use, a GPS for this race. There will be no maps or cue sheets.
Note about the course – On the north side this route goes through a Bald Eagle habitat. Access is prohibited December 15-June 15. Please don’t do the route during that time.
Bring a chair, beverages, food, whatever. Spend some time getting to know the super cool people who share this strange compulsion to push themselves to their limits.
Registration opens a month before the event.
