Flight of Fire is the original trail race in Red Rock National Conservation Area…now in its third year. A half marathon and 10K on the breathtaking trails of Red Rock NCA! You won’t find better views or more amazing scenery than that of Red Rock Canyon. This event is limited to 200 participants, so register early, as it is sure to sell out.
Starting at the Visitors’ Center, the course will travel clockwise to the Moenkopi Loop, the Grand Circle Loop, and the White Rock-Willow Springs Trail, then to the White Rock dirt road, back to the Grand Circle Loop, on to the Calico Hills Trail, and finally back to the Moenkopi Loop, finishing back at the Visitors’ Center. This course is a technical trail race and trail shoes with gaiters are recommended.
The 10K follows the same course, ending at the White Rock aid station. Shuttle service will be provided to return 10K runners to the start area; due to the varied finish times of runners, runners may elect to arrange their own transportation, as frequency of shuttle service cannot be guaranteed.
Printable and downloadable maps are available on the MapMyRun Elemental Running page. We suggest you add the MapMyRun application to your smart phone, print a map, or add the .gpx file to your Garmin.
Four aid stations will be located along the course. Aid stations will supply water, electrolytes, gels, and salt tablets. Vehicular and spectator access is available at all aid stations.
|Aid Station||Mile||Next Aid|
|White Rock Parking Lot||6.2||2.2|
