Description

_ The 2020 Xterra Black Canyon Trail Run:

This XTERRA series finale is not the event to miss. Lots of climbing, river crossings, sandy beaches, and endless singletrack. The best part? Our after race party is hosted at Rock Springs Café which means….DELICIOUS PIE!! 1/2 marathon, 10k, or a 6k fun run. This course is awesome! If you've never been out here, be prepared for a treat :) Shuttles will be provided to transport runners to the start line for the 1/2 marathon. Runners may use their own transportation to be dropped off at the start line, however, there will be no parking permitted at the Table Mesa Trailhead. There will be coffee, music, and a fire at the 13.1 mile start for those of you who take the earlier shuttles. First shuttle leaves at 5:30am. Last shuttle leaves at 6:40am. *PLEASE NOTE: HEADPHONES = DQ. This is a safety issue. While no headphones is a general Shendo Cat Racing policy it is particularly pertinent at Black Canyon. This course consists almost entirely of singletrack with a ton of exposure. You need to be aware of your surroundings. When you pass someone, they need to be able to hear you coming. If you are found wearing headphones at any time you will be disqualified. NO EXCEPTIONS.

All participants will receive a huge post-race breakfast, a super cool race tee and finisher medal, as well as entry into fun post-race festivities.
