With 3 uniquely different cloverleaf loops leaving from Carter Park in Breckenridge, you will be treated to amazing trails in the pristine Colorado high country.
Loop Three has been shortened about 8 miles to eliminate some of the dusty Boreas Pass Road, and to get everyone back in Carter Park for dinner. It also means that we have extended the Boreas Pass time Cut-off to 4:30pm.
Aid stations and medical coverage will support racers during the event. Carter park will be event headquarters, where the cloverleaf style loops converge, and team riders’ exchange.
Ultra racers ride Loops 1, 2, and 3.
Marathon and XC competitors will proceed under a neutral start from the Steven C. Ice Arena up Boreas Pass Road to Baldy Mt. Road to Sally Barber Road to begin loop 2.
Marathon Racers ride Loops 2 and 3.
XC Racers race Loop 2.

Aid will be provided on course (see course maps and descriptions), about every 10 miles, stocked with water, Hammer Heed hydration drink, Hammer Gels, KIND Bars, PB&J’s, bananas, oranges. You can also leave Drop Bags for transport to a particular aid station. You must leave these in the Carter Park aid bag drop zone on Saturday morning by 8am.
There will be a time cut-off checkpoint at the summit of Boreas Pass. All racers must get over Boreas Pass by 4:30 pm to complete loop 3. Racers not reaching this checkpoint by 4:00 pm will be turned around, thus not completing the race. There will be a broom wagon returning from Aid #7 – at 6:00 pm. If you haven’t reached Boreas Pass on your return leg by the time broom wagon reaches you, you will be picked up and given a ride back to the park.
All racers must complete their conquest before Saturday evening at 7:15 pm.
