This race has sold out for the last 6 years and we expect registration to fill up fast. Don't miss this chance to run in the desert and end in the lovely town of Springdale.
The race begins in Virgin, UT where participants will run on a partially closed road that winds and climbs uphill as it follows the curves of the Virgin River.
You'll run on Hwy 9 through small but unique towns before getting on a paved path parallel to the road passing the town of Grafton and through Rockville with stunning views of the southwest side of Zion. You'll finish in Springdale in front of Cable Mountain Lodge near the gateway to the South entrance of Zion National Park! This will be an "open course" meaning there will be cars on the road as well as runners. There are sections on main roads where traffic may be heavy. These spots on the course could get a little crowded. The course will be well marked but it is your responsibility to stay to the right when running with traffic and be courteous and mindful of cars and other runners. DO NOT step off the course into traffic, you will be disqualified. We want you to stay safe. Be courteous.
