The course begins at 10,780' ft, starting at the base of Arapahoe Basin and makes its way up the Argentine North Fork Trail to Black Mountain Lodge. At Black Mountain Lodge the racers will climb the summer road for a short distance and then climb up the ridge to the world famous Pallavicini Chair. From the top of the Pallavicini chair they will continue their way up towards Lenawee chair. Just before the racers reach the summit they will veer to the right and run along the Zuma cornice, which has some of the best views Summit County has to offer. They will run down to tree line and then turn around and run back along the Zuma cornice. Once they are back at the top they will run out towards the North Pole hiking gate which will take them to the top of Little Lenawee Peak. Once they summit Little Lenawee they will head back the same way and connect to the Humbug trail. At the bottom of Humbug they will reconnect with the summer road and run this until they hit Black Mountain Lodge. At the lodge they will head left down into exhibition and follow an old trail through 13 cornices and lower international which will then connect to the Argentine North Fork Trail with a finish in the base area, where there will be live music and food for all.
