Description

Trailfest is a 3-day/4-night trail running festival in the heart of North America's most scenic national parks: Bryce Canyon, Zion, & Horseshoe Bend.

Whether you're a hardcore ultramarathon runner or just getting into trail running, or maybe you're just a supportive spouse (bring the whole family) or friend who doesn't run, the Grand Circle Trailfest has something for you!

Each day, we'll run a segment of trail highlighting the natural landscape unique to that particular area. Each race is timed and you'll receive a cumulative time at the end of the festival on Saturday. Top finishers for each course will be crowned at Trailfest Headquarters in Kanab, Utah at the end of each day.

Registration includes full participation in all three races, full Festival access, an on-site camping spot with a tent (yes, you're welcome to bring your own tent if you prefer), and meal tickets for breakfast and dinner Thurs–Sat. (Additional meal tickets can be purchased on-site.) Festival activities are free for your non-running family and friends.

Event Information

What is Trailfest?

The Grand Circle Trailfest is so much more than a running event.

  • It's a 3-day trail-running festival centrally located in Southern Utah between Bryce Canyon, Zion, and Grand Canyon national parks
  • It's an end-of-season social gathering of a broad group of people who share a common thread: a love for the trails

The Races

Each day you'll run a segment of trail which highlights the natural landscape unique to that particular area (Bryce Canyon, Zion, and Horseshoe Bend.) You'll receive a time for each of the three trails that you run and a cumulative time at the end of the festival on Saturday. Top finishers for each course will be crowned back at Trailfest Headquarters.

The Festival

After each race, runners can enjoy the social activities that appeal to them most. After a fun day out on the trails and maybe some extra exploring, it’s time to kick off your running shoes, sit back and unwind. We’ll have something each night to help you relax and recharge for the next day. We create an environment for runners and non-runners alike to share stories & experiences.

All-day and evening activities include - yoga, kids camp, gear demos, clinics, live music, gear swap, guest speakers, slacklining, group runs, and so much more.

Whether you are a hardcore ultramarathon runner or new to trail running, or maybe you are just a supportive spouse or friend who doesn't run (bring the whole family), the Grand Circle Trailfest has something for you!
