Palm Springs Tram Road Challenge

Print

Calling all adventurous runners and walkers!

For 31 years, the Palm Springs Tram Road Challenge has been the ultimate endurance test. Held on Make a Difference Day, the event raises funds for the United Way of the Desert.

So why is it a challenge? This strenuous walk/run follows a beautiful path, but features a 2,000-foot elevation gain over 3.7 miles. However, you’ll probably be having so much fun, you will forget all about the “challenge” part. Each contestant who completes the Palm Springs Road Tram Challenge will receive a custom finisher medal. This year's event is coming up October 22, 2016, so start training now!
