100% women. 100% single track.

In 2018, 29 ultramarathons were won outright by a female runner. We want to see that number go up in 2019, so we created the Triumph 50K and 25K — all-women’s races designed to celebrate shared successes and big mountains. 

Triumph is set on 100% single track through the gorgeous Sawtooth and Salmon-Challis National Forests, just outside of Triumph, ID. It’s a world-class rendezvous point for women who love to run, be outside, push themselves and achieve their goals.

We hope you’ll join us.

COURSE MAP

Runners will gather at the Mormon Hill trailhead for the start of both races. From there, it’s 100% single-track through the Sawtooth and Salmon-Challis National Forests. Expect big views of the Pioneer Mountains a few miles to the northwest. Although the races are in mid-August, there’s a small chance runners will encounter snow on the course — you’ll be above 8,000 feet, after all. This winter has been a doozy across the entire mountain west.

50K Course Map

The 50K starts alongside the 25K at Mormon Hill and heads west to the Little Wood River Valley. At the Little Wood aid station (mile 7.4), the races split — 25K to the south, 50K to the north. 50K runners will follow the Little Wood River towards its headwaters in the +11,000’ peaks of the Pioneer Mountains. Bring sunscreen: you’ll be above the tree line in Box Canyon and down the final stretch of the race, along the Skyline Trail.

You’ll top out at 9,718 feet (2,962 meters) at mile 24.4. Take a moment here to enjoy the 360 views.

Fair warning: the 50K course runs slightly long! Depending on whose GPS watch you ask, you can expect about 1.2 “bonus” miles. For an interactive course map, head over to CalTopo.

25K Course Map

The 25K starts alongside the 50K at Mormon Hill and heads west to the Little Wood River Valley. At the Little Wood aid station (mile 7.4), the races split — 25K to the south, 50K to the north. From there, 25K runners will loop back toward the start, but not before completing a 2,200-foot (670-meter) climb in a 3.7-mile span.

Fair warning: the 25K course runs slightly long! Depending on whose GPS watch you ask, you can expect about 1.3 “bonus” miles. For an interactive course map, head over to CalTopo.

TURN SHEET

50K Turn Sheet

While we thoroughly mark the course with ribbons, signs and volunteers, runners are responsible for knowing their own way. Therefore, we HIGHLY recommend that runners familiarize themselves with this turn sheet and bring a copy to the race. You cannot be too prepared.

ADDITIONAL DETAILS

Directions to Start

Both races start at the Mormon Hill trailhead in the Sawtooth National Forest. Below are driving directions from Bellevue, ID:

  1. Head east on Muldoon Canyon Road for approximately 25 miles

  2. Turn left (north) on National Forest Road #134 for approximately 3.8 miles

  3. Stay straight onto National Forest Road #130 for approximately 2.5 miles

Although the start is only 30 miles from Bellevue, ID, you should plan on a 1- to 1.5-hour drive. The roads are narrow, windy and, toward the end, unpaved. 4WD/AWD recommended. If you’re relying on GPS for directions, please be aware you will most likely lose cell service before getting to Mormon Hill.

 
 

Parking

Parking is available about one mile from the trailhead, at the Copper Creek campground. We will arrange shuttle/carpool service from the parking area to the start.

Pacers, Crew & Spectators

No pacers, no crew. Friends, family and any other spectators are more than welcome to congregate at the Start/Finish area at Mormon Hill. They must, however, park in the lower lot at the Copper Creek Campground. The finish line will be family-friendly!

Furry Friends

Well-behaved and leashed dogs are welcome at the finish line. We would kindly ask that you bring water for your pup and pick up after them.

Drop Bags

Runners are welcome to leave a drop bag at the finish line. We’ll keep them secure and dry. Please label the drop bag with your (1) name and (2) bib number. Bib numbers will be loaded to UltraSignup a few days before the race. (We’ll have markers, index cards and tape at the start, too.)

Race Tank Tops

We are excited to announce a partnership with Oiselle, the Seattle-based women’s athletic apparel company. Check out the tank tops below — they’re available for $30 as part of the registration process.

 
 

AWARDS

The first-, second- and third-place finishers at each distance will receive a $50 gift certificate to a local sporting goods store in the Big Wood River Valley. We’ll also have a special award for a runner — to be selected by the RD — who delivers a particularly memorable race. (Fast, by the way, does not necessarily mean memorable!)
