Course Description

The 8th Annual Dugway Trail & Ultra Run gives runners a unique opportunity to participate in a 5K, 10K, 1/2 Marathon, 30K, 50K ultra run – with a new 2 lap course this year! Also a Military Team Challenge 10K. All distances are in the active training area of US Army Dugway Proving Ground, Utah installation. The desert trail offers an abundance of elevation changes with rocky, soft sand, and desert ground terrain with a gain of (5K 395 ft., 10K 1475 ft., 1/2 Marathon 2945 ft., 30K 3968 ft., and 50K 4042 ft). The course is primarily single track trail with some connecting dirt roads. Part of the trail follows wild mustang trails and views of golden eagles nests along the route. It’s not uncommon to see wild Mustang horses, antelope and more wildlife throughout the run. After trying The Kid 2K last year we have decided to try again this year. Children 10 years old and under may participate in The Kid 2K, which is free to run, and if you want a medal, the fee is $10.
