Gila 100


Formerly the long course of the Antelope Peak Challenge, this event will be a point-2-point, 100-mile event on the Arizona Trail. We will be parking at Tiger Mine Rd  and starting at Picket Post. See below for shuttle options.

When: February 24-25 2017 at 5am from Picket Post

Shuttle Information: SW Trekkers will be shuttling riders at 330am on Saturday, January 24th from Tiger Mine Rd. Should you desire to take the shuttle, please send $35 to me via paypal or snail mail. You will need to send your money by January 18th. This is NOT a mandatory shuttle, you can arrange your own shuttle.  There are no services at Picket Post, so plan accordingly with food and water.

The route: We will be riding 100-miles from Picket Post to Tiger Mine Rd on the Arizona Trail. The trail is marked (Arizona Trail the entire way). The estimated time of finishing this route is 12-26 hours.

      • We don’t have enough people to really pay for SW Trekkers bus. We are just looking at getting a car/driver to drop 3-4 of us off. You still in?
