SPEEDGOAT 11KM

JULY 22, 2022

11K Course Description

The Speedgoat 11k follows the Gad Valley service road for 1 mile, where it then branches off to the Big Mountain trail across the front face of Snowbird. Once reaching the “Chips switchbacks”, the route climbs sharply for .6 of a mile with 1000′ of vertical gain.  Once over this steep grinder, runners will follow a service road downhill to the top of the Wilbere chairlift.  A left turn takes runners up the “bunny schuss” towards Mid Gad restaurant.  The course will turn right and head downhill for a mile to the base of the Gad 2 chairlift.  The next half mile is a challenging, loose rock descent where it’ll then join the final 2 mile stretch on “buttery” Snowbird singletrack”
