RACES – The Marathon is capped at 100 runners. The course begins and ends in Arizona
neat the AZ/Utah stateline. The route includes several miles in the backcountry of the Valley
through some dramatic, rarely seen landscapes. This is a challenging marathon mostly on dirt
and jeep roads and is one of the most scenic routes in the country. There is a significant
amount of sand on this route. Highlights include the Arches loop and Totem Pole. The Half
Marathon is the main Valley loop road – a graded dirt road; the event is capped at 300 runners.
A competitive 10K Trail Race will be held on the Wildcat Trail around and between East and
West Mitten on a singletrack horse route. The Kids Marathon will be held at 11:00 a.m. on
Friday, with students completing their “final mile”.
For all races, there will be signage and pin flags at main junctions and along the course.
Please study the course map to get a feel for the course and to develop your energy and
hydration plan.
