Event Description

For 33 years people from around the world have been coming to Palm Springs in October to take on the Palm Springs Aerial Tram Road Challenge. Start at 400’ elevation and climb to over 2,600’ elevation in 6K.  This isn’t your typical weekend 5K, and completing the climb to the top is something you will remember forever.  With over 1500 participants each year, ranging in age from 5 to 95, this challenge is one that most can do with little training.  Whether you walk or run or a combination of both, you certainly earn the custom finisher medal and t-shirt you will receive at the finish line located at the lower tram station.  At the finish line we have refreshments, vendor expo booths, awards, prizes, and buses to bring you back down the hill (or, if you’re up for it, walk down instead). Service dogs are welcome to walk with their families, with their own water bowls at the three fluid stations on the course.
