A faster, flatter sidekick to Trails of Fury (which isn't saying much), Trails of Glory takes place on the trails on the north side of NV-160 with trails names such as Landmine Loop, Lawnmower, Late Night, and our favorite, The Hurl.
Join us on November 23, 2013 for our first trail race on the north side of Cottonwood Valley, starting from the Late Night Trailhead. With great trails, as well as the infamous Rubber Duck Tree, the north side of Cottonwood Valley promises fun, mostly fast trails with stunning views of the Red Rock cliffs.
We will be offering an 8K, 12K, half marathon, and a 30K, all on looped trails staying on the north side of NV-160 in Cottonwood Valley.
8K Course – 5 miles, 400 ft of vertical climb
A counter-clockwise running of the Mustang Trail with a quick detour to Rubber Ducky, beginning and ending with fast downhill with a challenging (but fun!) uphill in the middle.
12K Course – 7.7 miles, 600 ft of vertical climb
Start out running downhill on Mustang Trail, along Rubber Ducky, and up and over Lawnmower and down Rusty Bucket, before turning around heading uphill on Landmine Loop and the other half of Mustang Trail before finishing with a fast downhill.
Half Marathon Course – 13.8 miles, 1800 ft of vertical climb
A mixture of the Mustang Trail and Landmine Loop, ascending up The Hurl before passing through Blue Diamond and returning on with a gentle uphill on Mustang Trail before finishign with a fast downhill.
30K Course – 18.25 miles, 2400 ft of vertical climb
A modification of our half marathon course, with two additional sections to add the increased mileage. The first section will go up and over Lawnmower and down Rusty Bucket before rejoining the half marathon course on The Hurl, and the second 30K-specific section is an added loop using Landmine and Mustang Trails before rejoining the half marathon course at the kiosk and returning with the uphill and then fast downhill of Mustang Trail to finish. This is our first 30K course that isn't simply the half marathon and 10K course added together!
