The XTERRA Wheeler Canyon Xduro is back for 2009, but this time it will be part of the XTERRA USA Championship weekend in Ogden, Utah on September 26.
For runners craving a challenge, this half-marathon distance trail run will still feature the infamous 2,300 foot climb from Pineview Reservoir to Snowbasin Resort. This grueling "Xduro" endurance trail run promises runners a spectacular view of Wheeler Canyon and well-deserved bragging rights at the finish.
Wheeler Canyon RunnersFinishing the race in less than 3 hours automatically qualifies you for the XTERRA Trail Running World Championship December 6 on the beautiful Hawaiian island of Oahu. Although qualification is not mandatory, those earning qualifying slots into Worlds will be given special recognition on race day.
SINCE THERE WILL BE LIMITED PARKING AT PINEVIEW RESERVOIR, WE RECOMMEND YOU PARK YOUR CAR AT THE SNOWBASIN FINISH AND TAKE THE FREE SHUTTLE TO THE PINEVIEW RACE START.
