The course starts at junction in Central, Utah off of SR-18 and travels due West near an area locals call Red Butte. The road/trail is rocky and a rugged journey crossing through the hills laden with juniper trees. The trail meanders through the wilderness while providing fresh air and views not common to your average race. In time you run along a river bank and cottonwood trees as you leave the Moody Wash wilderness area. Near the end of Moody Wash, the trail ends at the pavement just below Veyo. The remaining 19 miles are on pavement flanked with basalt cliffs and Gunlock Resevoir. The road rolls along to the South East and leads into the community of Ivins and the finish is at Unity Park near the base of the majestic Red Mountain.
