Looking for a little bit of adventure? This race is for you. The Rock Challenge adds the steep ascent and descent of our iconic Town monument, the Rock, to the first half of the 5-mile distance, making it a thigh-burning wake up call. Most of this course is paved except the trek up the Rock. That is a single-track natural surface trail that increase in elevation from 6,206 to 6,486 feet in 0.64 miles - that's a 280 foot climb in just over 0.5 miles!
