About This Activity

The Forest Challenge is truly a challenging run through the bristlecone forest on Mt. Charleston.  The 11-mile course rises nearly 900' to the turnaround while the 5k and 10k courses have some elevation challenges of their own.

Event details and schedule

Please plan on being on the mountain by 7:00 a.m.  Allow plenty of time for the drive.  It's roughly 45-minutes from the Santa Fe Station to the Lower Bristlecone Trail trailhead.

Expect a starting temperature around 60-degrees with a finishing temperature around 75.

Trail shoes are recommended since the entire run is on challenging terrain over rocks, roots and your own two feet.
