FLAGSTAFF SKY PEAKS
The Flagstaff Sky Peaks 26K joins the Golden Trail World Series for 2022 and will feature some of the top trail runners in the world going head to head on the volcanic edge of the San Francisco Peaks. Runners will climb for the first 6 miles climbing from the base of Agassiz Peak to the slopes of Arizona Snowbowl Ski Resort. Then the real climbing begins as runners will ascend nearly 2,000 feet in the next mile, topping out just over 11,500 feet, before bombing down the western slopes of the ski resort, through winding single track under aspen groves and eventually onto the iconic Arizona Trail which spans 800+ miles from Mexico to Utah. If your quads aren't toast at this point, the 5+ mile descent to the finish line should help seal the deal!
