Location: Page, AZ US 86040 Directions
Type: Run or Run/Walk
Event: 50 Mile
50 miler- On this course you will experience two of the most photographed land features in the country- Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend of the Colorado River. After traversing the desert sand and slickrock to reach these unbelievable features, the run finishes out on smooth single track around the plateau that the city of Page, AZ is built upon, with jaw-dropping views of Lake Powell.

Average low temperature: 34 degrees Farenheit

Average high temperature: 60 degrees Farenheit

Runners start with a 5 mile desert traverse on a sandy doubletrack with a little slickrock and a slot canyon mixed in.

Near mile 4, runners will drop into the first slot canyon of the day, at the bottom of which is Antelope Aid Station.

After the aid station, you'll enter a large open wash, which you will follow south for about 3 miles to the entrance to the incomparable Upper Antelope Canyon. (This is one of the most photographed slot canyons in the world.)

Navajo guides will be posted along the route, as travel on tribal lands requires their presence in order to visit the sacred sites. After passing through the slot canyon, runners will climb over a sand dune and pass through another small slot canyon on the return (since the canyon isn’t wide enough for two way traffic.) You’ll return to the Antelope Aid station for the second time, then retrace your footsteps back towards the starting line for about 3.5 miles, where you’ll split off from the way you came and head west toward the Horseshoe Bend/Waterholes Canyon leg. Slickrock Aid will be about a mile into the desert after crossing S. Coppermine Rd.

From there, runners will traverse another open desert for about 3 miles before reaching the famous Horseshoe Bend of the Colorado River. An aid station will be set up near the parking lot of this spectacular overlook (Horseshoe Bend Aid).

The next section weaves through slickrock along the rim of the Colorado River, in an area that few humans have traveled which offers views that are beyond words.

After crossing back over Hwy 89, runners will fuel up at the Waterholes Aid station before dropping into another gorgeous slot canyon. The aid station is located near the bridge.)

After about a mile in the slot, runners will exit and head back towards the city of Page on a long, exposed, and sandy desert traverse which takes you through the Horseshoe Bend and Slickrock aid stations for a second time. Upon entering Page and climbing up onto the plateau which the city is built upon, the route ties into the smooth singletrack of the Page Rim trail. This is a fast and very runnable ten mile loop with spectacular views of Lake Powell and Glen Canyon Dam.

***Note that there is a short out and back trail that you'll need to take in order to access the Lake Powell Aid Station (0.18 miles each way)

Event: 100 Mile
100 miler- The 100-mile course replicates the 50-mile course, with the addition of 5 loops on the spectacular Page Rim Trail overlooking parts of Glen Canyon and Lake Powell. After we put on this race in 2015, several seasoned ultrarunners described it as a perfectly designed 100-mile course. The first 50 miles are full of exploration to highlights such as Antelope Canyon, Horseshoe Bend, Waterholes Canyon, and overlooks of Lake Powell. After wearing yourself out on these more sandy and technical sections, the second 50 miles are locked on the smooth, singletrack, ten-mile loop of the Page Rim trail. where you'll have aid stations every 5 miles that you'll make repeat visits to. The accessibility of this loop trail makes it logistically perfect to plan and prepare for the long night ahead with your drop bags, and for your crew and pacers to support you. And since the Page Rim trail circumnavigates the city of Page, your crew will never be more than a few minutes away from their hotel room or campsite, so you won't have to worry about their comfort. And, if you're interested in running the 50 miler but it's sold out, consider signing up for the 100- Anyone completing the first 50 miles of the 100-mile course will receive a 50-mile finish award (but nothing short of 100 will earn you a buckle!)
