Flagstaff Extreme Big Pine Trail Runs

Saturday, June 10, 2017

The third annual Xtreme Trail event up at Fort Tuthill County Park in Flagstaff was a truly amazing event.  We had not dont this set of running events before, and could not ask for more perfect weather this year to try it.  Hundreds of dedicated trail runners came together for this grueling run, the 13k loop is run twice for the 27k and four times for the 54k.  Thats just over 8 miles of challenging trail filled with huge rocks, gravel, stumps, pot holes and open fields.  For the most part, the run is smooth sailing.  But you must be wary here - rocks jutting out in the middle of the trail in smooth sections are always out to get you! 

For this event this year, I did the 2 loops while Dawn race walked the 13k loop.  Such grueling trail is not for the meek - The mind set of runners at these events is more finish the challenge of the trail in one piece, and not so much do it fast as possible.  That can invite disaster if one is not careful, and there were more than a few banged up knees and elbows at the finish line on this one.  Fortunately, both of us came through in good shape, and absolutely loved the terrain and scenery, and the great group of runners on this one.  Crossing the finish line on these types of runs are not filled with such fanfare as you might expect from a road race.  Here, family and friends welcome you and they handed you a nice big ceramic coffee mug with a custom event emblem on it. Looking forward to next year already!

Scenes from the trail - smooth going here.  But wait....

Aid station about half way. Notice that it is NOT right on the trail, because trail running is more about conquering the terrain, not how fast you can grab a cup and run faster!



Finishing area, Dawn waits for me to come in an hour later.


The last few hundred feet here I come!


And on to the finish.  No big fanfare at the finish line in trail races, its all about the distance and terrain.


Finishers mugs waiting to be handed out when you cross the line. 


Major awards for the fastest runners
