2013 Vail Victory Trail Marathon has a limited field and spectacular course. 100 runners will race in beautiful backcountry of the White River National Forest. This exceptional course on the northern side of Vail includes dirt and gravel roads and winding single track trails. Fast flats, grueling uphills, and dizzying downhills make for an exciting and challenging course. Rocky Mountain vistas and scenic panoramas will inspire athletes all along the way. NOTE: There is a short pavement section at the start & finish as racers head out and return to the West Vail staging area. A lead car at the start ensures a guided transition from road to trail. A sweep bike will follow the last racer in.
There are plentiful (but paperless) aid stations (6) along the way -each stocked with energy gel, water, and electrolyte replacement drink. Some with fruit and snacks. Racers must carry their own hydration vessels (bottles, waistpacks, etc.) and gel containers in order to refill at each station. There will be a drop bag area midway on the course for personal items and additional food/drink replenishment.
Registration closes once participant cap is reached. No day of registration. $25 from each entry donated to the Vail Mountain Rescue Group.
