The Breakdown will be returning to Breaks Interstate Park in April. We already have a course designed that will take you to some entirely new areas of the Jefferson National Forest and surrounding areas.
This may be one of the hardest races you've ever done. You'll climb and descend steep mountainsides in some rugged, remote terrain. Those climbs, however, will be rewarded with some spectacular views and fast downhills. Expect well over 10,000 feet of elevation gain and at least 65 miles to clear the course. Well... that's for the 15 hour version. We're cooking up a 30 hour course that we hope will challenge some of the best racers in the country, and give you a chance to do a 30 hour race that may feel more like an expedition length race.
Full details will be added here soon.
