Description

The Lake Powell Course features some really spectacular views of the lake. Starting in Page and ending at Stateline Marina, this is one of the fastest courses in the Vacation Races National Parks Race Series. It is also the first race to feature a trail as part of the course.

Course Info

The course starts in Page, AZ at the city park. There is tons of parking near the start. We recommend parking at one of the high school parking lots. Additionally, there are a number of local hotels that are within walking distance.

The course runs near the airport and through some residential neighborhoods for the first 3 miles, you get some great views when you get near the airport, but ultimately, it is still running in neighborhoods.

Mile 3.5 is when things get awesome. There is a single(almost double) track trail that runs out along a mesa in Page called the Rim Trail and gives you really spectacular views of the lake. Any spectators with boats may want to head East of the Dam around Antelope Island to cheer on runners from the water.

After about 2 miles on this trail, the course gets back on the road and drops down quickly to the highway about a half mile south from the bridge. You cross over the bridge(awesome) and after a small incline you turn onto Lake Shore Drive. So freaking pretty.

You run along lake shore drive and turn towards the hotel once you get near the marina. At the hotel, you get onto a running path for the last mile of the race. With about a half mile left you can see the finish line and your fans can see you! Well finish at the end of the parking lot very close to the water. See a course and elevation map here.
