The Round Valley Rambler is the first race in the Triple Trail Challenge. 100% of the course takes place on prime, buffed single and double track in Round Valley which sits at an altitude of 6,500’. While athletes will find the trails foot-friendly, the rolling, high-desert terrain presents a few long and steady climbs followed by fast downhills. The Round Valley Rambler is a stout trail half and serves as a reality check for athletes preparing for the Triple Trail Challenge sister races, the Jupiter Peak Steeple Chase and the Mid Mountain Marathon

Already getting into a freeze/thaw cycle. Rode across a few iced over puddles at 1pm. Ground was solid, and likely still frozen. There was a spot where someone created some ruts. I rode this yesterday at around 3 and they weren’t there at the time, so it likely happened a little later in the day. In sum, best to ride this in the morning.
