Socially distanced IN PERSON trail half-marathon!
September 28 COVID-19 Update: WE’RE ON! We’ve received approval from the Kaibab National Forest, the town of Tusayan, and the Grand Canyon Chamber of Commerce!
For now, the plan is to have a capped field of 200 in the Half Marathon and 100 in the 5k, with staggered start times, no finish-line activities, and a mostly self-supported course, with plenty of rooms for runners and walkers to do their race in a safe environment. Pricing has been capped with no new price increases after August 1, 2020.
We’ve already ordered 200 souvenir coaster medals and 200 Grand Canyon running buffs, so medals and buffs are guaranteed to the first 200 registrants!
All participants will receive a colorful long-sleeve race shirt.
We’re on, so join us on Saturday November 7th for the Second Annual Grand Canyon Trail Half Marathon in the beautiful Kaibab National Forest, just south of the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. Souvenir race medallion, beautiful long-sleeve shirt, race goodies, and more to commemorate your iconic journey through the trails near the South Rim. Walk or run a half-marathon, 5k, or the family mile — then visit America’s greatest attraction, the Grand Canyon.
The 13.1 mile trail loops through the beautiful forest and high desert of the Kaibab National Forest, while the 5k is an out-and-back, partially on a paved multi-use path through the forest and partially on a forest service road. The courses do not descend into the Grand Canyon, but all race participants can purchase a National Park Service pass and from the race site easily enter into the Grand Canyon National Park.
For questions, contact Randy at [email protected].
The Grand Canyon Trail Half Marathon is a joint partnership between the Grand Canyon Chamber of Commerce and Run Tucson, the premier local running company in Arizona.
