Q: What is the weather like in March?
A: The average high is in the mid 70’s with a low in the mid 40’s. Mornings can be cool but it warms up fast. However, it is not uncommon for a day to reach well into the 80’s or even stay in the 60’s so be sure to watch the weather.
Q: How many rest stops are on the course?
A: There are 4 stops on the 90 mile route, 3 stops on the 65 mile route, and one for the 35 mile route.
Q: Will there be sag vehicles on the course?
A: Yes, but it’s still a good idea to be prepared for any sort of breakdown.
Q: Is lunch provided?
A: Yes, in addition to the fully stocked rest stops there will also be a full lunch at the finish line.
Q: Is the course relatively flat?
A: The 35 mile route has a total gain of 1,506 ft. It has two category 5 climbs (the easiest climb rating—anything less isn’t scored).
A: The 65 mile route has a total gain of 3,354 ft. It has three category 5 climbs and one category 4. You’ll hit the category 4 just after mile 32. Then it has a nice downhill. That’s followed by two category 5’s and then a long decent to the finish.
A: The 90 mile route has a total gain of 8,552 ft. It has two category 5 climbs, one category 4, and one category 1 climb. You’ll find the category 1 climb just off the freeway as you head toward Utah. It’s an average grade of 3.1% over 16 miles. But once you top that, you’ve got a long downhill to the finish!
