An unforgettable voyage through some of the world’s most scenic and unique lands. Try it!
Race Date: November 4th & 5th, 2023
We are happy to announce that we will again be running Sundays 1/2 Marathon in addition to the traditional Saturday Races. So, you may run the 1/2 marathon on either Saturday or Sunday (same course, same support, but two separate awards.) If you want to run the Marathon, 10K or Kids K- they will be offered on Saturday only.
We added the Sunday 1/2 Marathon since Saturdays 1/2 Marathon fills up very early. Please note that all Saturday’s races will likely fill up by early June. There will be NO WAITLIST (we’ll over-sell to account for no-shows), so sign up early! We expect Sundays 1/2 Marathon to be open until early October (and Sunday’s entry fee is considerably less!).
Location:Event takes place in the spectacular and beautiful Kane Creek Canyon area near Moab, Utah.
