Utah > XTERRA Wheeler Canyon Xduro 21K Trail Run
Saturday, September 25, 2010
Filled with plenty of hills, rocks and streams runners will tackle
along the trails of Ogden's Pineview Reservoir, the half-marathon
distance Xduro trail run returns to Utah in September 2009. The XTERRA
Wheeler Canyon Xduro 21K Trail Run is the fourth and final race in the
XTERRA Utah Trail Run Series, but participation in the previous
three events is not necessary to compete in this challenge. The Xduro
is new to the XTERRA lineup and promises to be the ultimate in trail
XTERRA is known for its extreme, off-road events, and the
XTERRA Wheeler Canyon Xduro will certainly live up to its reputation.
Held at the Pineview Reservoir in Ogden Valley, the spectacular
views and sparkling water will make runners forget they are challenging
one of the most grueling trail run races around.
In addition to the 21K Xduro, the action-packed weekend includes
twodistances of off-road triathlons, free kids' races, the Breeder's
Choice XTERRA K9 Challenge and K9 Walk, music, food and fun.
