Yá'át'ééh riders!  Welcome to the Monument Valley Bike Race! 


REGISTRATION – Online registration is now open.  The registration fee of $40 includes a finisher’s medal, performance  t-shirt, post-race food, live music, decal, course support and awards to top finishers. Online registration is available at Youth (under 18) are $10. On-site registration will take place an hour before the start on race morning.  Any proceeds from registration or donations will benefit the work of the Dine’ Bike Project on the Navajo Nation.

FOOD & SUPPORT – Your registration includes aid station support on the course (including fluids and Honey Stinger gels), portable toilets, light medical and minor mechanical support.  Everyone will enjoy post-race food, drinks and fresh fruit at the finish line.  There will be course marshals and parks staff monitoring the race throughout.


ROUTES – The 13-mile course travels along the Valley Drive, a road that is a blend of hard-pack and sandy sections.  The route includes some rolling terrain, and a arduous climb in the final 1 ½ mile.  The course includes world-class scenery, as riders traverse through some of the most stunning landscapes on the planet.  The course will travel among some beautiful buttes and rock formations for which the area is well known. Please be aware of your surrounding and others on the route.  The course will be well-marked with pin flags and cones.

WEATHER – Expect hot summer conditions.  The start will be less hot than mid-day, but you may see temps in the 80’s.  The 13-mile course means that you will be done before the main heat of the day arrives.  Chances of cloud cover, wind or precipitation in late June is minimal, though it is advisable to look ahead at the forecast a few days before the race.

AWARDS – The first 60 riders will receive a finisher’s medal.  Overall and age-groups plaque awards will be presented to the overall top riders, plus age-group winners in youth, master’s and senior age-group divisions.


The Monument Valley Bike Race is a joint project of the Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park and the nonprofit organization NavajoYES
