The race will feature a marathon, half-marathon and 5k events. The marathon, with its national championship title, has drawn more than 50 elite runners who will vie for top honors. Participants will run 13.1 or 26.2 miles on the beautiful, rugged course that features trails along the Kane Creek corridor, including Pritchett Canyon, Hunter Rim and Jackson Trail, as well as some unnamed trails, and trails through private property including a rope-assisted section. The top runners in the marathon will be recognized as champions and will receive a $3,500 prize purse.
The event is being held under permit from the BLM and SITLA.
