We are honored to host the 3rd Annual Gib Wallace Memorial Trail Run. Gib Wallace has been instrumental in designing, developing, constructing and maintaining our wonderful trails network and can be considered one of the “Fathers of Ogden Trails”.
Course Description: Beginning at Mt Ogden park, run south on single track and double track that parallel the golf course until you reach the 36th street trailhead. From 36th street TH run East on a short section of singletrack and then a short section of service road until you take a right on a singletrack connector trail that will roll over to the Discovery Trail. Take a left and climb the 4 steps to the Discovery trail and climb up to the Bonneville Shoreline Trail (BST). Once you join the BST take a left on the double track, run north a bit until you see the totem for the right hand turn onto the connector trail heading to Beus Canyon. After taking a right on the connector trail you climb to the high point on the BST and take a sharp left for a loop back to the Beus connector. Once back on the Beus connector you’ll retrace your route to Mt. Ogden Park.
We will have the course marked with ribbon, trail signs, and volunteers.
