Start to May Queen: Start on the corner of 6th St. and Harrison Avenue. Runners will head west on 6th St. for just less than one mile to the junction of McWethy Drive and 6th St. Turn left for about 1/10 mile, then turn right on a dirt road called the Boulevard. Follow the dirt road approximately 2 1/2 miles, turn right at the junction and run about 8/10 mile to the Turquoise Lake Road (paved). Turn left for approximately 1/4 mile on the paved road to the 3-way junction opposite Sugar Loafin’ Campground. Follow the dirt road (middle fork) to the power line (approximately 1 mile). Turn right and follow the power line up to the Turquoise Lake Road. Cross the road and pick up the trail on the edge of Turquoise Lake, turning right. Follow the trail along the shoreline, first heading north, then west to the May Queen Campground. Be careful along this trail section as it will be dark and some of the course is right along the water. After entering May Queen Campground from the trail, proceed on the road, still heading west. The first aid station will be on the right after you have run all the way through the campground. You should carry adequate water from the race start to make it to the first aid station, approximately 13 1/2 miles into the race.
May Queen to Fish hatchery/Outward Bound: Continue in the same direction until you reach Turquoise Lake Road. Turn right, which is northwest. Run on pavement to a hairpin curve in the road, where you will turn left off the paved road and across a small stream, bearing left on a trail that in turn crosses a wooden bridge over a larger stream. Turn right immediately after the bridge and continue until you reach metal rails standing in the jeep road, then turn left onto the Colorado Trail. At Hagerman Pass Road, turn right and continue for approximately 1 mile. Take a hard left onto a jeep trail, Forest Service Road #105, and proceed to the top of Sugar Loaf Pass at 11,000 feet. At the top of the pass, make sure you do not turn right or left at the Colorado Trail sign. Continue along the dirt road for several hundred yards, then turn right on the road that leads you down the power line right-of-way to the County Road. The portion of our trail from the top of Sugar Loaf Pass down to the paved road passes through private property. We ask that you not trespass on either side of the dirt road. At the paved road, turn right and run along a paved section to the Leadville National Fish Hatchery. This is the first medical checkpoint and is 23 1/2 miles into the race. The aid station is operated by the Colorado Outward Bound and Leadville National Fish Hatchery, and SVGH medical volunteers.
Fish hatchery/Outward Bound to half Pipe Aid Station: Run east (again on paved road) about 1 1⁄2 miles to County Rd-11, which heads south. After running on this road for 1.2 miles, turn right on Halfmoon Road. Near the timberline, take a left turn onto the Pipeline right-of- way. Follow the Pipeline for approximately 2 miles.
half Pipe to Twin Lakes: After leaving the Half Pipe Aid Station, turn right on Forest Service Road 130, and follow the road until it intersects with the Colorado Trail. A left turn following the Colorado Trail will take you to the Mount Elbert Aid Station (fluids only).
Mount Elbert Aid Station to Twin Lakes: Follow Colorado Trail, then the single track east to the dirt road that descends to Twin LakesTwin Lakes to Winfield: As you leave Twin Lakes Aid Station, go approximately 1 block
east, turn right and run straight ahead to Highway #82. Cross the pavement and the parking lot and head in a westerly direction, following the trail that roughly parallels the pavement, until you reach a dirt road. Turn left and follow the dirt road until you reach the river. After crossing the river, continue on the jeep road until you reach the trail intersection with a “NO VEHICLE” sign. This will soon turn into a trail. There is a fork in the trail after about
1 mile. Take the left fork. This will take you to the summit of Hope Pass at 12,600 feet in elevation, and the 45-mile point in the race. There will be a limited aid station at timberline on the north side of Hope Pass. This is manned by a few very hardy volunteers (because you couldn’t pay somebody enough to do this). Aid here is extremely limited and this aid station should be considered for emergency use only. Upon leaving Twin Lakes, carry enough food and fluids to get you to Winfield. The course then drops down to the Sheep head gulch trailhead intersection. New for 2012, racers will be running the beautiful Continental Divide Trail next to Clear Creek road. This trail is located at the bottom of South Hope pass near the Sheep head Gulch trailhead. Use of the trail will eliminate the danger of racers and cars traveling together on the 4 mile stretch up to Winfield. Runners will turn west on the new section (outbound) and come into Winfield from above, running through the town, across
a bridge, and then make another left turn into the campground and the Turnaround Aid Station, operated by the Leadville Lions Club and SVGH volunteers. This is also a medical checkpoint. After clearing the aid station, turn around and repeat the same route — in reverse. You must leave this aid station on your return by 14 hours.
