Start/Finish: All races will start and finish at the base of the Dreamcatcher Chair lift at Grand Targhee Resort in the heart of the Tetons!
Course Overview: 50KM & TRAIL MARATHON:  There will be some slight changes to the 2013 course, adding more single track, but it will be similar to previous years.  It's a clover-leaf loop course  with roughly 5,147ft of climb per loop. Terrain includes single-track, service roads, bike trails and a short (but scenic) 3.2 mile stretch of pavement with beautiful meadows, valley vistas and several dead-on views of the Grand Teton. On the well-marked course, you’ll encounter rolling hills, steep climbs, loose rocks and spectacular fall colors. The race is family and crew friendly!

10K RACE: The 10K loop course will start and finish at the base of Grand Targhee Resort and run clockwise around Rick's Basin. There will be one water only aid station on the course (around the 4.5 mile point), however, runners must carry their own bottle or hydration system.
