COURSE & CHECKPOINTS–
The 50K is a virtual event, so the course is literally what you make it.
The competitive 10K and 15-miler trail races are scenic and tough runs on local dirt roads and trails; there are overall and age-group awards for this event. The 10K and 15-miler will begin and end at Navajo Mountain High School.
The course is marked with pin flags, cones and signage; however, it is recommended that runners study the course map and be familiar with the route
This is a cupless event so runners should plan to bring their own hydration system. There will be fluids on the course, but you will need a cup, hydration pack or bottle to be filled at the aid stations.
PACKET PICK-UP – Runners will be able to pick up their race packets in a very COVID-safe manner near the start line at Navajo Mountain High School.
LODGING – Camping will not be available at this year’s Naatsisaan Ultra due to Navajo Nation curfews and lockdowns. There is camping available in Page, Arizona and Monument Valley, Utah (about two hours), and there is ample lodging in Kayenta, Page and Tuba City, Arizona (each also about two hours from the chapter house).
AWARDS – Overall and age-group awards will be presented in the 50K, 15-miler and 10K.
WEATHER – The weather in the Navajo Mountain area, including the surrounding canyons, can be very volatile. Runners should be prepared for rapid changes in conditions, including rainy conditions, wind, snow and cold. Conversely and less likely, there may be opportunities for heat issues on this route, even in late October. Please be aware of your surroundings and be prepared for any extreme weather and trail conditions that may arise.
The Naatsisaan Trail Ultra and the Navajo Parks Race Series are organized by the nonprofit organization NavajoYES in collaboration with Navajo Parks & Recreation. The event has major sponsorship and/or logistical support from Navajo Mountain Chapter, the Navajo Rangers, Utah Navajo Health System, Kayenta Fire, Honey Stinger, Navajo EMS and Teec Nos Pos Trading Post.
