This is a stunningly beautiful early season race through the spectacular Arizona desert landscape. The Antelope Canyon region is one of the most photographed places in the country and a sacred place for the Navajo people. From the spectacular Horseshoe Bend of the Colorado River to the mesmerizing Waterholes Canyon there is something uniquely breathtaking around every turn. The run finishes on smooth singletrack around the plateau that the city of Page, AZ is built upon, with jaw-dropping views of Lake Powell.
Note: Most of the information here is the same as it was for the 2018 event and should remain relevant for 2019 but remains subject to change. The minor changes that you can expect to see in 2019 are:
- Washing machine style loops for the 100 miler
- A milder approach and descent up onto the Page Rim trail
- Lake Powell aid station will be moved to a location that eliminates the out-and-back to get there.
