Welcome to the Standhope Ultra Challenge (the SUC)! 2016 will be a three-day event featuring the White Knob Mountains and the Copper Basin area, going along with the 60K and 30K. This is not a beginner-level ultra. The race peaks out at 11,000 feet over rough terrain and passes along the shores of Goat Lake, the highest lake in Idaho. Entrants will be rewarded with a truly breathtaking mountain run, possibly taking the prize as your most beautiful trail run. This is a world-class course and will likely fill up early. Check out the Course page for topo maps and an elevation profile. To connect with other runners, visit our Facebook page.
