Ultra runners set for Zane Grey 50-miler to test endurance, stamina

The Zane Grey Highline Trail 50-Mile Race might be the Rim Country’s best-kept secret, even though it’s one of the most legendary events on the nation’s ultra run calendar. Martin Szekeresh is probably the only local who knows much about the race, having previously entered it. He’s also worked as a volunteer host for several years. Szekeresh says runners describe the Zane Grey Highline Trail as the “toughest 50-mile trail race in the country” and claim it’s more demanding than most 100-mile ultra marathons. The 23rd annual race begins at 5 a.m. tomorrow, Saturday, April 21 at the Pine Trailhead north of the Beeline Highway and winds over rugged Mogollon trails and through canyons to the finish line at the 260 Trailhead east of Christopher Creek.
