The Trail Run Challenge - Ready to get a little dirty! Grab those trail shoes and maybe a few bandaids and hit the dirt!
First up in April is the "Art Attack", You'll start at the top of Red Hills Parkway at the Pioneer Trailhead parking lot. From there you run down the bike path for a 1.2 miles, jump onto the St George City Creek Trail for almost 4 miles and return to the finish line via the bike path. 1.5 miles are paved and the 3.5 miles of the City Creek are single track. Check it out at Map My Run City Creek FLEX Run
Challenge #2, is the "Ticket to Paradise" that puts you on the Chuckwalla Trail. You’ll climb roughly 500’, up Beck’s Hill to the top of Scout’s Cave junction then return on Paradise Rim for a run of just under 6 miles. This is one of the premier trails in our area with fabulous views of the valley on one side, Pine Mountain on the other.
The final Trail Challenge is our "Life is a Picnic" where you get to drop back to a very short and lovely flat run on the Temple Quarry Trail. The Trail circles the hillside above the old airport and is where the stones used for the foundation of the St George Temple were quarried a hundred and forty year ago. It’s a very scenic 1 mile out and 1 mile back rim run so we thought we'd do this one in the afternoon and evening. We did say this was in June so the sunset is around 9:00 p.m. You can choose any start time between 3:00 - 6:00 pm. Remember, it is June so if you expect it to be a warn one!
