About this event
The Sugarloaf Xterra Trail Run 5K, 10K, Half and Full Marathon – Saturday, September 30th to Sunday, October 1st!
Sugarloaf Mountain has been chosen as the pinnacle event for the XTERRA Trail Run World Series.
A weekend-long trail running festival that will see top elite and amateur runners compete for $10,000 in prize money and XTERRA championship crowns in both full and half marathon distances.
Live music, great food, and family entertainment will keep the energy high throughout the weekend, with 5K and 10K trail runs, and races for kids to ensure everybody can get involved.
- Saturday, September 30th: Home to 60 miles of twisting tree-lined trails the XTERRA 5K & 10k will not disappoint. Open to ages 6 and up the course is set with Sugarloaf as its backdrop and will follow wooded trails from the Sugarloaf Base Area to Sugarloaf Outdoor Center’s network and loop back with close to 500 feet of elevation gain. Breathtaking vistas, roots, rocks, and stream crossings create a natural environment for all levels of ability.
- Sunday, October 1st: Marathoners can expect a tough 40-kilometer course featuring more than 1,000 meters of climbing, and half that for the 21K runners. Exact course routing has yet to be determined and with so many spectacular options it’s certain the course designing gurus from XTERRA, and the Sugarloaf Mountain Ops team will take as much time as they can to create their masterpiece in the mountains.
