We wanted to provide an amazing way for runners to experience all Corner Canyon has to offer so we came up with this race series. A convenient and affordable way to explore these trails and push yourself all without getting lost!
These courses cover beautiful areas and will leave you wanting even more. We hope this series will help motivate those who may be reluctant or don't know how to start exploring these trails. With our leaderboards and finisher results this series will have you competing against yourself and others while you navigate the course.
Due to this area being so popular all events have been banned from these trails. Because of this we have taken this unique approach using a gps program to run and explore these trails together. We hope you will read below to see how it works and give this series a try, you won't regret it!
We recommend viewing our website for more information including course maps and details as well as other races we offer! www.happytrailsrace.com

We have created a virtual start and finish on each course. These are approximately 200 feet after the start and before the finish of each course.
This was done to ensure everyone is timed on the same exact course segment.
This means your course time will differ from your segment time due to segment time not starting or finishing until you hit those virtual gates.
