This year's Xterra trail run series kicks off at Wolf Mountain in Eden Utah tomorrow morning. It's been raining for a couple days, and is forecast to rain tomorrow, so it should be a wet, slippery race. Eden is located about 1 hour north of SLC, northeast of Ogden, next to Pineview Lake.
It's a challenging course with 1000 feet of vertical climb in the first 1 1/4 mile up Oh My Hell Hill and Bayot's Blvd leading to the top of Wolf Mountain. From there you'll descend down the Green Mile and back to Bayot's Blvd. before doing an out an back up Nordic Valley. Nordic has several hills and some water hazards in the form of streams that will require you to get your feet wet. The trail finishes down a winding Moose Run to Howling Wolf chair lift.
I'll report on how I did in my next post.
