Moab Mountain Relay
Experience some of the wildest scenes around as you beat the path with your favorite running buddies. Check out Moab from the “back side” as you run along the La Sal Mountain Loop Road. Feel the burn as you run through elevation changes that range from 4800 feet to 8800 feet. Climb that mountain, then coast back down into Moab. End up at the Old City Park for lots of cool grass and shady trees.
50 Miles Made Easy
With a team of 6 runners (or 3 for Ultra teams) this 50 miles will be a smooth ride. Each runner runs two different legs of the race (each about 4 miles or so), then hitches a ride in the team wagon while the other teammates run their legs of the race. This relay-style of running makes this 50 miles seem like a breeze.
There are 12 exchanges along the course where the runner must slap the team wristband (a.k.a. the “baton”) on the wrist of the teammate running the next leg. After finishing his/her leg and completing the exchange, the runner then hops in the vehicle with the other teammates to cheer the next runner on and to rest up for his/her next leg a few hours later.
Here are the Perks
Do you really need more than an excuse to come to Moab? How about some cool tech tees and classic medals for all finishers? Or maybe the awards will do it for you since they are given to division winners, best team name, and best-decorated vehicle. There’s always the party at he finish line where you get your picture taken with your sweaty friends looking your best. Whatever it takes to get you here, we got you covered!
