5K, 10K, Half Marathon, 30K, and 50K Day & Night Trail Races

The race that started it all, now bigger, better, and longer! With our newly-added 50K distance, we're taking Trails of Fury to the next level while making our shorter distances better than ever.

Taking place on mildly- to moderately-technical trails Trails of Fury is a fast race course consisting of mostly gradual climbs with only a couple short, steep climbs up Satan's Escalator and Techno.

Race Distances

We'll be offering the option to run daylight events starting at 6:00am (50K) and 7:00am (5K, 10K, Half Marathon, 30K), the Moonlight Madness events starting at 6:00pm (30K), 7:00pm (Half Marathon) and 7:30pm (5K and 10K), or the Dirty Double, where you get to enjoy both races! For the morning races there will be a 10K, Half Marathon, 30K, and 50K available, with a 5K, 10K, Half Marathon and 30K available for Moonlight Madness.

If you choose to register for the Dirty Double, you can change the distances you're running on race day, but we'll ask which distances you're planning on running when you register.

5K Course – 3 miles, 390 ft of vertical climb

A fun course running the southern loop of the Badger Pass Loop, the 5K is a mildly-technical trail climbing the majority of its 390 vertical feet by the 2 mile mark and ending with a fun, fast downhill run to the finish along 3-mile Smile.

10K Course – 6 miles, 850 ft of vertical climb

The 10K course is two laps of the 5K course, passing through the start/finish area halfway for an aid station.

Half Marathon Course – 13.1 miles, 1550 ft of vertical climb

The Half Marathon starts along Badger Pass Loop before cutting across to a steady climb up Dead Horse Loop to Satan's Escalator (a short, tough climb). The reward after several miles of climbing is some very fast, non-technical trail leading to stunning views of the Las Vegas Strip from Wilson's Tank, followed by returning down Dead Horse Loop and Red Canyon/3-Mile Smile back to the finish.

30K Course – 19 miles, 2400 ft of vertical climb

The 30K course starts out with the first half of the 10K course, going around Badger Pass Loop before returning to Badger Pass Loop and joining the Half Marathon course. Once the Half Marathon course is completed, continue on to the 5K course loop to finish.

50K Course – 31 miles, 3800 ft of vertical climb (Daytime only)

The ultimate tour of Cottonwood Valley, the 50K takes place on both the north side and south side of NV-160, beginning with the first 15 miles of the 30K course before heading up Badger Pass Loop and under NV-160 to Mustang Trail, Landmine Loop, Black Velvet, and Late Night, before returning to the 5K loop to finish.
