Finish line is open to crews

Leatham Hollow (Mile 19.66): Go south from Logan (left fork heading out of town) to Hyrum, turn left and go up Blacksmith Fork Canyon. Turn left about 5 miles up the canyon at the Left Fork of the Blacksmith sign. It’s about 1 mile on dirt road. Crews may crew here. It is another 3 miles up the dirt road to the Richards Hollow station. CREWS ARE NOT PERMITTED AT RICHARDS HOLLOW for 2020. The road is rough, narrow and dusty. 

Cowley Canyon (Mile 29.98): Crews are no longer permitted at Cowley Canyon Aid.

Right Hand Fork (Mile 37): From Leatham Hollow Aid, go back to Logan, and then go up Logan Canyon about 9 miles, and turn right at Right Fork. In about a mile turn left to right hand fork, the aid station is in about ¾ of a mile where the road dead-ends.

Temple fork (Mile 45.15):DO NOT PARK ON HIGHWAY 89 AT TEMPLE FORK. You will be cited by the Highway Patrol. Park either in the lot or along the dirt road that the runners will be descending. From Right fork, go back to the Logan Canyon Highway, and turn right. Go about 5 miles up the Canyon to the Temple Fork road. The station is right there.

Tony Grove (Mile 51.84): From Temple Fork, go up the Logan Canyon Highway about 5 miles to the Tony Grove turn (left). Before heading to the aid station you must check-in with the team at the parking lot just west of the turn-off.  Do not proceed to the aid station until you are given permission to proceed.  It is 6.5 miles on paved road to the aid station at Tony Grove Backcountry Trailhead.  This is on your left 1/2 mile before reaching the lake.  It should be flagged.  Do not park at the Lake Parking lot or you will have to hike 1/2 mile back down the canyon to the aid station.

Franklin Basin (Mile 61.48): From the Tony Grove turn in Logan Canyon, continue up the Canyon about 3 miles to the Franklin Basin road, turn left, go about ¼ mile on dirt road and turn left. It’s just past the bridge. It’s another ¼ mile to the aid station. Parking at Franklin Basin Road will be staged. Please follow parking monitors’ instructions. Park in the first large parking lot just after the turn off and walk to the aid station.  This is a requirement for all support crews.

Logan River: (Mile 68.6)Because of concerns the Forest Service has raised with impact, and for runners’ safety, the Steep Hollow/Logan River aid station will no longer be accessible to crew. Pacers and crew may attend to their runners at Franklin Basin Road aid station or at Beaver Mountain aid station. Crews attempting to attend to their runners along the Franklin Basin Road will subject their runner to disqualification. Please help us maintain a safe event that complies with our host’s wishes.

Beaver Mountain (Mile 75.85): From the Franklin Basin road, go back to the Logan Canyon Highway, turn left and go about 3 miles to the Beaver Mountain left turn. It is about 1-½ miles up the paved road to Beaver Mountain. At this point you will enter a large parking lot, with a small lodge at the extreme end. Three flag poles are in front of the lodge. As you look at the lodge, go right, uphill. This is the road to the yurt. The yurt is about 200 yards up the hill. Dim your lights as you proceed to the yurt; you will be driving on the course against the race flow, and don’t want to blind the runners.

Beaver Creek (Mile 85.25): From Beaver Mtn, go back down ½ mile, turn left and head up Beaver Creek road (rough dirt) about 3 or 4 miles to the aid station.

Ranger Dip (Mile 92.2): From Beaver Creek, go back down to the Logan Canyon Highway, and turn left. It is about 3 miles to the Swan Flat road. Turn left onto this dirt road, and go about 5 miles, take the right fork, and there will be the aid station at the trailhead.

Finish Go back the way you came from Ranger Dip AS to highway 89. Turn left, over the summit, and down to Bear Lake at Garden City. At Garden City turn left (north) on Highway 89. Cross into Idaho, and in about 3 miles you will reach Fish Haven. On the left you will see a restaurant called Gladys’s Place. Turn left at Gladys’s Place (Fish Haven Canyon Road).  The new finish for 2020 is 1/4 mile up this road on your left. The finish is 100 yards further on the right (east), next to the lake and in area with a large yard and bowery.
