The regular course is 7.4 miles long. The first 3.7 miles is generally uphill on the paved main tram road into the canyon and then runners return to the start the same way, this time enjoying the downhill miles! Always make sure to stay to your right at all times, around all islands and any other obstacles like aid station tables.

The 2 mile course is 1 mile up into the canyon and back. There will be no aid station so please bring your own water.

There are aid stations with water at miles 1.7, 3.4, and 5.1.
