Description:

Behind the Rocks Ultra starts and finishes at the Behind the Rocks Trail, along the border of the Behind the Rocks Wilderness Study Area. Moab’s last hidden gem; its tall standing Navajo Sandstone domes and fins can be seen from many places along the course. This course traverses some remote trails, and give you the opportunity to enjoy the desert solitude. From smooth double track to sandy washes to technical doubletrack, to challenging singletrack, Behind the Rocks Ultra will test you mentally and physically. While the 30K can give a runner an introduction to Moab trail running, the 50 Mile course is among our most challenging events. It includes some some technical down climbs and rim running, that offer amazing views of arches and rock formations. As runners close in on the finish line, they’ll see it nestled just below the La Sal Mountain range. A great place to enjoy the finish line with a great community! With free camping at the start/finish line, you’re welcome to spend the weekend. Bring your cooler, stocked with your favorite post race drinks, and stay for the fun!
