The 2022 Shiprock Marathon will provide a unique and new running experience for runners joining us the first weekend of May! With our ongoing interest in promoting social distancing where possible and the local communities’ desire to maintain a safe environment, we have developed a Shiprock Marathon weekend that promises to combine all of that in what we hope will be an outstanding event for runners, spectators and supporters.
The 5K and 10K races will begin/end at Dine’ College on Friday evening. The first waves of the Marathon will begin at 6:45 a.m., with the Half Marathon following at 7:30, at the College. It is out-and-back course that includes views of Shiprock Pinnacle and a gentle long downhill slope on the return. There will be great course support and live music throughout.
Drive-Thru Packet pick-up will be staged on Friday from noon to 8 p.m. and again from 6:00-6:30 a.m. on Saturday morning. Please make every effort to pick up your packet on Friday.

5K &10K Races – 6:00 p.m. @ Dine’ College
Saturday: Marathon – 6:45 a.m. Half Marathon – 7:30 a.m.
Saturday’s Race Day Parking
Race day in Shiprock is exciting and busy, so please take a minute to review this information about parking. The designated marathon and half marathon parking area is the Shiprock High School parking lot, with overflow in the dirt field between the high school and Dine’ College.
From Farmington hotels – drive west on Hwy 64, approximately 30 miles. Once in Shiprock, continue straight through a stoplight (near Wells Fargo and church), across the San Juan River and to the second stoplight (near gas stations and City Market). For the marathon and half marathon parking, take a right there, onto Hwy 64 and travel ¼ mile until you will see the event signage near the highs school. For marathon relay parking at the Youth Center parking area, continue through the stoplight ½ mile to the signs for the Shiprock Youth Center on your right.
