Welcome to the Standhope Ultra Challenge (the SUC)! This is a four day, 83 mile point-to-point stage race through the Smoky & Pioneer Mountains on August 12th-15th, 2015, going along with previous year’s 60K and 25K. 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. Check out the Course page for topo maps and an elevation profile. To connect with other runners, visit our Facebook page.
