P2P Course Details
The Point 2 Point course is constantly evolving. In the early years, it was an absolute giant that would beat you down, we used whatever trails we could to make it all connect. In recent years, the course has grown as the trails of Park City have too, and what we have today makes this one of the best endurance races in the country.
The best option 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 occasional arrow signs. More than likely there will be a course change or two from what you see on this posted map, don’t be surprised by that and we will communicate tweaks as they present themselves. Also, we will review 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 course pages on the Trailforks platform.

90% Singletrack (Probably more, but we don’t want the other races to feel bad)

Average Finish Time: 9 hours (Fastest, just over 6 hrs, slowest is nearly 13 hours)
