Aderire Antelope Island Buffalo Run
Antelope Island, with an area of 42 square miles (109 km2), is the largest of 10 islands located within the Great Salt Lake, Utah, United States. The island lies in the southeastern portion of the lake, near Salt Lake City and Davis County, and becomes a peninsula when the lake is at extremely low levels. Antelope Island has natural scenic beauty and holds populations of pronghorn, bighorn sheep, American bison, porcupine, badger, coyote, bobcat, and millions of waterfowl. The bison were introduced to the island in 1893, and Antelope Island Bison Herd has proven to be a valuable genetic pool for bison breeding and conservation purposes. The bison do well because much of the island is covered by dry, native grassland.
The increasingly popular trail run was held at one of Utah’s many one-off destinations, Antelope Island, a barren desert rock that floats in the Great Salt Lake and is home to herds of wild buffalo, antelope, and countless other critters.
Punti salienti del corso
Go from the start out to the White Rock trailhead. Turn a sharp left at the trailhead at the fence and head uphill. Keep going uphill. After a couple of miles the trail levels off. Stay on this trail and follow it as it goes on the saddle on the east side of the island. The trail turns back west. When you get to the fork with the bench, keep going straight and up the hill to the Elephant Head aid station. Then head out on the Split Rock loop, going down Death Valley first. Run that loop until you get back to the Elephant Head aid station. Once you leave Elephant Head, you head back towards the east until you get to a sweeping left fork in the trail on the saddle. Go left here and follow the trail along the hillside and around to the front side. Go down the hillside to the White Rock Bay aid station. If you’re doing the 25K, keep going to the finish, if you’re doing the 50K, head back out for another trip. The 50 mile/100 mile is the same trail as the 25K/50K except you will be doing the Elephant Head trail out and back (3.6 miles RT) and running the course twice.
Camping available at race HQ. Bring your tents, you can bring your RV’s. If you want to camp there, it will be an extra $7.45/family. There is also a campsite on the north end of the island with individual campsites. These are $14/night and you’ll need to pay the park for that. There are plenty of hotels just off the Antelope Island exit on I-15. The closest hotel to the island is the La Quinta Inn, however, there are several other hotels/motels within a mile of the La Quinta.
There will be a post race feed.
