Enjoy an out-and-back relatively flat course (fewer than 500 feet of climbing and descending). You’ll admire the beauty of the surrounding desert as you follow this paved run from Furnace Creek Ranch along Hwy. 190 through the heart of Death Valley National Park. The entire course is below sea level … MORE

    The pickup is at the ranch area of Death Valley in the midst of many campsites and palm trees. It’s a long drive to get out to the start but it’s a scenic one, more scenic than the race itself.

    It’s a pretty bare bones race in terms of support and swag. You do it mainly for the scenery. It’s a one way switch back route from the camp village out on a paved road or you can run on the bit of trail right next to it. The road is still open on the other lane so you will get cars passing by.

    There are some high school volunteers along the route at aid stations. Porta potties, which are definitely needed, are spaced throughout, because it’s wide open desert surrounded by mountains on both sides.

    The swag is minimal with a cotton shirt and small medal. There were drink and some trail mix and snacks after the race. They did send a ribbon for finishing second in age group. Hope the money goes towards the local schools instead of lining the pockets of the RD. Pretty low key race.
