Review of Peters Canyon Trail Series #1 by mid pack

Posted by: on December, 22 2011

This race is a well kept secret! It’s small and the series actually is run on weekday nights in the Summer. It’s one of my favorite races of the year. The course is a challenge but only 5 miles long. Starts with a gradual uphill climb for about a mile or so then you hit the big hill. From there you run on top of the ridge(many ups and downs), then an all down hill fast finish. The trails are not “groomed” and have some serious obstacles and ridges you need to avoid. But that’s the fun of trail running right? They feed you dinner after the race as well with a pretty good BBQ. Good race!
