“The annual November Trail Championships. This is the half marathon version. It is tough but beautiful.”— Kim Conner
Featured Race - Nov 3, 2018
Set in one of the most beautiful places in the United States, the Moab Half Marathon provides a scenic and challenging course. Gaining nearly 2,000 vertical feet, the course covers a variety of terrain ranging from canyon rims to the actual Kane Creek drainage. Runners will get a taste of everything that Moab has to offer while on this course.
Continue on to the singletrail portion alongside Hunter Canyon. There are gorgeous vistas as you run right alongside the cliff, so stop looking at the vistas and pay attention to the canyon! At about mile 9, the race posts guides to help you down a very steep scramble. Sit on your butt if you have to! This steep descent leads into the mile 9.7 aid station. Grab some snacks and prepare to head up some switchbacks.
This next part is on a road, so watch out for traffic. The term road can be used somewhat lightly, as the dirt tread and incredible views aren't quite like running around the neighborhood. Eventually, you'll head back off the road, cutting along a short stretch of trail, and then descending to Kane Creek. You'll run through the creek bed for a mile or so. If it's been raining, this will be a wade, up to your thighs if you're unlucky! You'll get back up on the road one last time and then run around a spur that crosses the creek a couple more times before heading to the finish line!
