Overview

The Dead Horse course was created to feature the Magnificent Seven Trails off of Gemini Bridges. The race features more singletrack than any other Moab footrace.

Need to Know

Mad Moose Events' Special Request: While running on the Mag 7 and &-Up trails, please be aware of where you step so that you are sure to stay off of the Cryptobiotic Crust. The crust is a living organism that takes a long time to recover from human disturbances.

Description

The course will challenge you with technical slickrock and sandy washes and has great views of Arches National Park, the La Sal Mountains and the Moab Valley. The race features the new singletrack trail, Mag 7.
