Bonneville Speedway Road, Wendover, UT 84083, USA
This course is mainly flat, however due to weather conditions it will be challenging.
The course begins at the end of the Bonneville Speedway access road on the staging area for the Speedway. Once the gun goes off, head north following the flagging along the Speedway for 10 miles, passing Honey-Bucket portable toilets at mile 3 and 7, to Aid Station 1 at 10 miles.
You’ll be running on nearly 6 feet of solid salt for this entire section!
The surface is generally quite hard, similar to hard-pack dirt. However, if there’s been any moisture, it can be very sticky and you can accumulate some salt cakes on the bottom of your shoes… just keep running and it’ll fall off eventually.
From Aid 1 (Salt Flats), head north following the same flagging for almost three more miles, and then turn east following the same flagging and then pin-flags for about another 3 miles where you’ll reach Aid Station 2 (Lone Post), at 16 miles. You’ll have transitioned off the salt and will now be on the classic firm sand of the salt basin. It’s a little like running on the beach near the water line. The big post stuck in the salt here is a mysterious relic from the past and serves as a great marker for the aid station.
From Lone Post, follow pin-flags north for just over a mile where you’ll intersect the hard-pack, dirt road that connects Floating Island to Silver Island, turn left following the big flour arrows and pin-flags and head west on that road. Follow this road due west for a mile and a half, where it enters the brushy landscape at the foot of Silver Island. The road ultimately winds around to head south, where it joins the Silver Island Loop road. Follow the flour arrows and pin-flagging south, then continue following the pin-flags to Aid Station 3 (Cobb Peak Road), at 22.6 miles
From Cobb Peak Road, continue south on East Silver Island Road for 9.9 miles to Aid Station 4 (Jeep Trail) at mile 32.5.
Leave Jeep Trail Aid Station on a narrow, rocky 4x4 road heading North-West. Follow this road as it turns west for 5 miles to where it joins West Sliver Island Loop Road again, and then head south for 2 miles to Aid Station 5 (Rock Pile) at 39.3 miles.
After leaving Rock Pile, follow West Silver Island Loop Road south for about 1.3 miles to a dirt road on the left, and following the signage and blue pin flags, make the mile climb up to a narrow pass, then enjoy running the fun ATV trail down to Ranch Road, cross it to the dirt road on the other side, and follow the blue flagging as you cross the saline canal, and make a b-line for the “C-Store” (aid station 6) at 45.5 miles.
Leave C-Store Aid Station and continue following the 100 mile course (green pin flags) west to the intersection with Speedway Road. Turn left on Speedway Road and follow it north for just over a mile and then bear right onto the salt flats on the right side of the Speedway Access Road and head east staying about 50 yards from the Speedway Access road, ticking off the mile markers for your four mile sprint to the finish!
Where the salt flats themselves have collected rain water and are under 3" of water. Under this circumstance, we'll be running an alternate course, which proceeds as follows: Leave the start, and run west along the shoulder of the access road following the green flagging. At the Y with Levy Pass Road (mile 3.83), continue to head west for 0.71 mile to the “scenic byway” of east Silver Island Road (and an unmanned water stop). Follow the flagging north for 5 miles to Aid 1. Leave Aid 1 north and continue for 3.33 miles to Aid 2. Leave Aid 2 and head north past the 50K turn-around at 15.5 miles, and to Aid 3, where you'll turn around and return to Aid 2, and follow the normal course on Jeep Road.
