The trails are wide, up to 8 feet in some places, with many ups and downs. Don’t get your hopes up for an easy run here. DIRECTIONS: I-25 to Hwy 24/Cimarron exit. Drive west to 8th Street and turn left, drive south to Lower Gold Camp Road and turn right. Continue west to the main entrance of the Norris Penrose Events Center. Please park in the parking lot south of the office building. Walk to the southern end of the parking lot and walk west. Staging will be at the southernmost end of the parking lot. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- #2 – North Monument Valley Park COURSE: ~4 miles. Start in the large grass field and then proceed onto the trails. The course will lead you onto side trails. You will return to the grass field for your final sprint to the finish.
