“Get Ready to ROCK the Quarry”
Welcome to the Quarry Crusher Run National Series! Do you think you have what it takes to run down massive declines into the earth and straight back up to the top? If you think you can challenge yourself to complete this feat, this is the race for you. This once-in-a-lifetime look inside a magnificent landscape that is prohibited to the general public will leave a lasting memory in addition to the aching of your muscles and bones. Unlike any other races nation-wide, the Quarry Crusher Run Series allows private access into exclusive landscapes that will amaze each and every runner.
Once you’re in each quarry, the route will wind down an average of a 10% grade (expect as much as 18% in areas!) through granite cliffs to the quarry floor. The approximately 400-500 foot ascent from the quarry floor to the finish makes the grueling event one of the nation’s most challenging foot race. Can you handle it? Get to the bottom and find out!
We offer the Single Crusher (around 3.7 miles) and the Double Crusher (7.4 miles – not for the faint of heart!).
