XTERRA McDowell Mountain Trail Run

Pemberton Trailhead
Long Coure: 15 miles
Short Course: 7k
XTERRA McDowell Mountain features a 15 mile long course for the more endurance oriented runners which winds out Pemberton Trail and climbs up towards Dixie Mine. Don't forget to check out the cholla forests and fields of beaver tail cacti. The shorter 7k course is, well, scenic. I mean, the trail is called the Scenic Trail. Following a counterclockwise loop, this rocky trail will keep you on your toes.

    The hill got me as well but short of that the rest was good. As always breakfast was good the massage afterwards a bonus (as long as you sign up early). Well run and supported race. Unfortunately only one more race left :( Thanks to the volunteers and shirley for putting on an awesome race.

    It might be too late to be posting this, but wondering if there will be overflow parking anywhere. I'm running the short race and anticipate the lot by the trailhead to be full...?

      You should be able to park at the trailhead even for the 7k or on Shallmo Road.
