The Logan Peak Trail Run traverses the mountainous area around Logan Peak through Logan Dry Canyon and Providence Canyon (the main drainages just south of Logan Canyon). During this challenging event, runners travel 28 miles on a predominantly loop course with over 7200 ft elevation gain/loss. Amazing views, lots of climbing, and varied terrain/habitat are just a few reasons to run this course. The elevation gain/loss makes this event roughly comparable to many 50 K races. The race is a spectacular opportunity to experience the outstanding trails around Cache Valley, and Logan is a great place to hang out and have fun.

Runners also have an option to complete only the Syncline Loop (avoiding the 1070 foot climb to and descent from Logan Peak), for which they will receive an official time but not an overall place.
 
All entrants receive a high quality cotton T-shirt with a unique design. Finishers also receive a Logan Peak Trail Run mug.
