Triple Crown of 200s
The Ultimate Adventure x 3:
Three 200+ mile races in three months, welcome to the Triple Crown of 200s!
What is the Triple Crown of 200s?
The Triple Crown of 200s is three 200 mile races in just three months - the ultimate ultra challenge! The series was created to highlight the most scenic and non-repetitive 200s in the USA. That means you'll never have to do more than one loop, there are very few out and backs (briefly to aid stations or to bag a peak), and each step you take is a unique exploration of some of the most challenging and stunning terrain in the USA. The Triple Crown is made up of the three original non-repetitive 200 mile trail running courses in the USA. What makes these races special? They are either point-to-point or single loop courses featuring a plethora of single track trails, lots of elevation gain and an adventure of a lifetime. They are all located in world-class outdoor destinations: Cascade Mountains (Bigfoot 200), Lake Tahoe (Tahoe 200) and Moab Utah (Moab 240).

Why Choose Destination Trail Events?
All events in the Triple Crown of 200s are organized by Destination Trail, a company that has been organizing 200+ mile races for 8 years beginning with the Tahoe 200 in 2013. Choose an organization inspired by runners and owned and managed by ultrarunners. We are here to support you through your epic adventures with our well marked courses, medical team, live tracking that is monitored 24/7, aid stations with real food including vegetarian and vegan options and a track record of successful, runner-oriented events. Thought and care is put into every aspect of our events from the quality swag and awards you receive - handmade in the USA, to how and where each sign and course marking ribbon is placed.
Choosing a company with a proven track record of successfully organizing multiple 200+ mile races cannot be over-emphasized when it comes to putting your trust, time and investment- your life- into an event of this distance and magnitude. We have had many years to work out the kinks and issues that all events face in the first 3-5 years of their inception. We know where our routes need (extra) markers (where runners get lost), we know where extra water/aid support needs to be, we know when runners tend to have medical issues, what mandatory gear to require, what staff and volunteers to have in place, what foods runners need to make it so many miles at a time (hint: lots of incredible real, hot food!) and so much more, all this based on many years of experience.
Our events are challenging and the ultimate in adventure-based trail running with an emphasis on supporting our participants before, during and after the event, runner safety, and the most scenic mountain routes in the USA. Each event is designed so that you can travel from anywhere in the world and see the most stunning terrain & views on non-repetitive courses. We like to have the most single track mountain trails possible! We'll never have you run in circles or out and back just to get some extra miles. Our 200 mile events generally (pre-COVID) have 15-25% international runners and athletes from almost every state in the country. See why people from all over the world keep choosing to run Destination Trail events - and why we have one of the highest return rate of runners in the industry despite also having the longest distances.
