Photographs from the Photography on the Run post: Rocky Peak 50K 2018
Two minutes until the start of the 2018 Rocky Peak 50K!
The Rocky Peak 50K starts with an approximately 1.5 mile warm-up loop around Corriganville Park. Corriganville was once a movie ranch where western films and TV series such as Rin Tin Tin and The Lone Ranger were made.
The initial steep climb on the Corridor Trai ascends about 860' in a little over a mile to Rocky Peak Road.
