General Info

Our orientation runs are intended to be slow, social runs that give you a chance to get to know the terrain and route a little better to help prepare you for race day. We will have several groups at varying paces with run leaders and sweepers. We will also offer various distances:




  • Shortened version of the Queso Loop (approx 12k / 543M total).
  • There will be no other options for this orientation.

Recommended Gear

We recommend that you utilize the orientation runs as a test drive for your gear. As such, carry everything you would use on race day while also considering that there are no aid stations for the orientation runs. 

Check your race distance at https://devilsladderultra.com/ for gear recommendations and requirements. 


Registration is FREE but REQUIRED.
