  • This course is fast
  • This course is incredibly scenic
  • This course is USATF certified

The course starts at Hardware Ranch Wildlife Management Area, and travels down Blacksmith Fork Canyon and on into downtown Logan. The course drops approximately 1045 ft. over the 26 miles but is only a 1% to 2% grade and won't beat up your legs. It is a perfect downhill course. Many set a PR on this course.
