The desert in spring displays its scenic wonders at their finest, and brings the most comfortable weather for running, camping, and other fun activities which are planned for you, your friends, and your family. All courses lead you through Anza Borrego Desert’s most diverse and pristine lands. Temperatures range from the low 40's overnight, to daytime highs in the low 70's.
Old West Trails Fest courses are welcoming and runner friendly. Many Old West runners achieve new personal records. Throughout the entire 50K and marathon courses, runners will experience only about 2500 feet of gain & loss! The 1/2 Marathon course is considerably less “daunting”, with only 670 feet of elevation gain & loss. Generous time allowances are provided to encourage runners who are new to trails, and older geezers to come on down and join the fun! All participants will receive a tech t-shirt. Medals to all finishers. Hot showers available for after the run!
