I don't have a lot of photos of the course. lost my camera last fall while mapping the course but here are some that I  have. A little more information about the course, most of the course is runnable there are a few sections that are very rough , other than the Kannah creek section they are short.   Most of the course is over 9500' elevation.

Well its still winter on the Mesa.
But the canyons are warming  up.
The 50 and 100 milers will be running on the top edge along the flowing park trail from right to left.

Welcome to the Grand Mesa 100 blog. I've been asked why I wanted to put on this race. I've been doing ultras for six years and have had such a great time and met such cool people that I decided to put on a race. I'm lucky enough to live in such a terrific area for trail running. I enjoy running on the Grand Mesa and I want to share this spectacular location with others who will appreciate it. My goal is to create a race that runners would want to run again and again. I also hope to make a little money to help local community groups.
