The entirety of this section runs along Hwy 2 – a total of 4.6 miles, climbing 770’ and descending 420’. Leaving Eagles Roost, runners travel on the North
side of the road (with traffic) until they reach the Cloudburst aid station. Please run on the right side of the road, which will be marked with yellow ribbons.
Runners may notice that certain parts of this section feel hotter, as additional solar radiation is reflected off the light-colored rock and canyon walls block air
movement. Nearing the Cloudburst Aid Station at mile 33, 7,020’, a cooler breeze usually provides a bit of relief.
