The Mesquite Canyon Trail Runs take place on rugged, single track trail with significant challenging climbs, incredible views, steep descents, large boulders, rocks, and desert vegetation. The courses offer a challenging but rewarding experience for all, from the beginning trail runner to the most experienced ultra marathoner. 

The 50 Mile & 50 Km courses are designed for EXPERIENCED TRAIL RUNNERS ONLY since they travel through a hazardous (but incredibly awesome) section of trail/wash down Ford Canyon. Here, 50 Mile & 50 Km participants will be required to execute some downhill rock scrambling over the famed “White Tank” rock formations.
