Whether you are looking for a rugged course that will prepare you for mountain races like UTLT and Castle Peak100k or you want to discover the magic that awaits around this high alpine route, we will guide you safely on this journey. The Lost and Found 55K/30K/10K has something for everyone— join us August 3rd and celebrate in the great outdoors.
The post party will feature hot grilled food with lots of cold drinks to enjoy. Bring your family and friends and we will feed them too; no one is turned away from our famous trip-tip burritos and tacos, homemade rice, beans, guacamole and salsa!
The 55K is a modified multi loop course. The start/finish is next to Lake Van Norden across from Soda Springs Ski area. Starting with a loop up to Razorback Ridge back to the start then under I-80 through the culvert. Take the single track over to the Donner Lake Rim Trail to picturesque Summit Lake Aid station as you wind through ancient granite slabs. Then return back and join the Warren Lake trail which continues to climb up next to the Frog Lake overlook. You then fall off the ridge where you find miles of wildflowers and little streams as you make your way through this pristine alpine valley. The climb up to Basin Peak will test your mettle but then the reward is real as follow along the most amazing ridge with 360′ views from the Coast Range to Mt Rose where you summit Castle Peak. Enjoy the views before you plummet down to Castle Pass, hop on the Hole in the Ground Trail and head back to the start/finish. The approximate elevation gain is 6000 feet. The 30k will bypass the Royal Gorge loop and the Johnson Canyon loop and have around 4000 feet of gain. The 10K runners will enjoy the Razorback Ridge Loop.
