The 16th Annual Javelina Jundred presented by HOKA ONE ONE will take place October 27 – 28, 2018 staged out of the Four Peaks Staging Area at McDowell Mountain Regional Park north of Fountain Hills, Arizona. The 100 Mile distance will be comprised of one 22.3 mile loop that incorporates the Escondido Trail on the far East Side of the park and four 19.45 mile loops on the popular Pemberton, Shallmo, and Cinch Trails. The 100 Kilometer option will consist of the same course but will only complete the first three loops of the 100 Mile course.
The 100 Miler is a 2018 Western States 100 Mile Endurance Run Qualifier & the 100 Miler and the 100 Kilometer are 2019 UTMB Qualifiers (4 Points). Runners will reverse directions each lap of the race and will be supported by four on-course aid stations per loop (Javelina Jeadquarters, Coyote Camp, Jackass Junction & Rattlesnake Ranch). Crew accessibility is limited to Javelina Jeadquarters (start/finish line) and pacers are welcome to join a runner after 3 loops for the 100 mile or after 5 pm (whichever comes first). Pacers may join 100 km runners after 2 loops.
We have camping available at Javelina Jeadquarters and encourage crews to spend the day with us cheering on competitors and mingling at the start/finish.
The course is a five loop format with the start/finish area staged out of the Four Peaks Staging Area (Javelina Jeadquarters). Loop one will be 22.3 miles and include the Shallmo, Pemberton and Escondido Trails. Loops 2-5 will be identical at 19.4 miles including parts of the Cinch, Scenic, Pemberton and Shallmo Trails. Trails feature rolling single track through the Sonoran Desert. Run past giant Saguaro Cactus, granite boulders and dry wash-beds as you tour the most popular trail of McDowell Mountain Regional Park. 100 kilometer runners will compete the first three full loops of the 100 Mile course.
Loops are run “washing machine” style, meaning each is reversed allowing you to keep an eye on the competition, see your friends and meet other runners all day and night.
Each loop features a gentle 600-foot climb from the start/finish at Javelina Jeadquarters to the high point near the foothills of the McDowell Mountain range. The trail dips in and out of wash beds on the far side of the course before descending back to the start finish. The trail is a mix of hard packed granite, rocks and sand.
