Vertical Kilometer Course Information

10:30 AM Start – Friday, October 6, 2017

The Flagstaff Vertical Kilometer (VK) features a point to point course up ski runs and the Agassiz Lift line to Grandview Terrace (11,600 feet) at the top of the Arizona Snowbowl Ski Resort. Along the way you will climb 1000 meters (3,280 feet) in 3.0 miles. Due to the nature of Arizona Snowbowl, there will also be two steep downhill sections along the course in order to obtain the required 1000 meters of climb! As part of the US Skyrunner VK Series, this race features high altitude running, extremely steep terrain and cross country travel. We highly recommend shoes with good traction and poles are permitted.

All runners will be able to ride the Agassiz Scenic Chair Lift back down to the Agassiz Lodge after completion of the run.
