Grand to Grand Ultra Marathon

The first and only self-supported stage footrace in America

 

It is the first stage race to start from the awe inspiring north rim of the Grand Canyon, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, and finish on the summit of the Grand Staircase, one of the world's most iconic geological formations. The course takes you through a high desert landscape of sand dunes, red rock canyons, buttes, mesas and hoodoos. You will navigate compelling slot canyons and experience the remotest part of continental America in the way of the earliest settlers, Navajo and Paiute Indian tribes. This is where Montezuma's gold is still reputed to be buried.

Observe nature up close in an environment rich in flora and wildlife – from unusual and threatened cacti to big horn sheep to the endangered California Condor, the largest bird in America.

Challenge yourself in the company of an international group of participants who are all eager to complete a world-class course, one which has been experienced by few adventurers.

And treat yourself to the nightlife of Las Vegas after you emerge from the desert!

And new for 2015, the Awards Party is to be held in a spectacular outdoor setting in a canyon near Kanab, Utah. To enhance the participants' experience, you will have more time to get to know your fellow competitors and the locals you will have met.
