Brian Head Enduro


Race Bible

Welcome to the Brian Head Enduro! The object of the race is to score the fastest downhill time for each stage of the race. We'll put you at the top of the mountain to start the race, and then you make your way down Brian Head as fast as you can. At the end of the first downhill, you will get yourself back to the top for the next stage before the cut-off time. Then you will race downhill again. 

Repeat for a total of four amazing runs down Brian Head!

Brian Head is one of the first ski resorts to adapt biking into their mountain runs. And we are happy to team with them for this new race! Dark Hollow, Bunker Creek, Navajo Run and Giant Steps are the trails we'll race for the Brian Head Enduro. You get to experience back country as well as Brian Head's amazing mountain bike park.

The course for the Brian Head Enduro is located on the Dixie National Forest. The Dixie National Forest requires everyone follow the Leave No Trace principles. Please be aware and do your part to take care of this beautiful area.


If you are interested in camping, reservations can be made at Reserve America or at the campground on a first come, first served basis. Please note, Five Mile Picnic area is a day use area only.
