P2P Course Details
The 2018 course will again be finishing at the Skullcandy World HQ building out in Kimball Junction. I’m pleased to announce we will finish up on the North side of the bldg this year, shade, food nearby, and no dust!! Huge thanks to Skullcandy for helping to make this possible.
Best practice on race day…follow all trail markings, not your GPS unit. The course will be marked with Orange Spray Chalk, Tie-on Orange Ribbon, and very occasional arrow signs. Again, there more than likely will be a change or two from what you see on this map, so be aware (check this page on occasion, I’ll list changes as they arise). Also, we will review tweaks to the course at the racer meeting on Friday night of packet pick-up (6:30).
A HUGE shoutout to Todd at Trailforks for assisting with the development of our P2P event page. And also to Suunto, or official GPS and mapping partner – if you not tried a new Spartan watch, don’t delay – get the computer off your bike (and yes, the batteries can last the entire P2P day).

And here is a training tool, a 115 mile iteration of the Park City Point 2 Point, try to ride it in a day or over a few days – regardless, it offers up some of the best trails PC has to offer. Get to the page HERE #P2P115

90% Singletrack (Probably more, but we don’t want the other races to feel bad)
Around 12,000′ + Elevation Gain (give or take a 1,000′)
Average Finish Time: 8.5 – 9 hours (Fastest, sub 7 hours, slowest a little over 12 hours)
