Course Description

The point to point Wild West Marathon course starts at the Tuttle Creek Campground (about 5,000 feet) and includes about 5,500 feet of elevation gain and loss. There are also a few creek crossings.

The first third of the course runs mostly uphill on fairly steep jeep roads and trails contouring and climbing to the highest point at 6,600 feet at the intersection of Whitney Portal Road and Hogback Road (8.5 miles).

A long, winding 9-mile descent on a wide graded dirt road leads to the north end of the famed Alabama Hills. Winding and rolling Movie Flat road takes runners southbound through this unique geological formation of huge rounded oblong rocks.

Around mile 20 the marathon and ultra split course. The final miles for both the marathon and ultra have a moderate elevation gain on a single track trail followed by a 5 mile descent. Many wildflowers, including red Indian Paintbrush, lavender Lupine and Mojave Asters, and yellow Desert Dandelions, bloom along the course.
