“The only race where you can run through the world famous Horseshoe Bend and Waterholes Canyon.”— Matt Anderson

Need to Know
The next section weaves through slickrock along the rim of the Colorado River, in an area that few humans have traveled which offers views that are beyond words.
After crossing back over Hwy 89, runners will fuel up at the Waterholes Aid Station before dropping into another gorgeous slot canyon. The aid station is located near the bridge.
After about a mile in the slot, runners will exit and head back towards the city of Page on a long, exposed, and sandy desert traverse which takes you through the Horseshoe Bend and Slickrock aid stations for a second time. Upon entering Page and climbing up onto the plateau which the city is built upon, the route ties into the smooth singletrack of the Page Rim Trail. This is a fast and very runnable ten-mile loop with spectacular views of Lake Powell and Glen Canyon Dam.
