Trail Runners Do It In The Dirt and the Cibola Trail Alliance proudly present, The Bluewater Canyon Trail Race!

This 5-mile trail race starts at the Bluewater Canyon parking lot, you will run 1 mile along gravel road before heading up over 500 feet to the top of Bluewater Canyon where you will have incredible views of the surrounding mountains and mesa’s and overlooks of Bluewater Canyon with its flowing creek below.  Stop for the views and many photo ops with 3 aid stations along the way to keep you hydrated! The race follows established dirt road with some rocky sections and makes a loop on the mountain before heading back down to the Bluewater Canyon parking lot where you will finish. Stick around the finish area for a free fruit and beverage buffet or bring your own refreshments and towel and take a short half mile hike into the canyon where cold mountain water in the creek waits for you to jump in and cool off!
