Veterans Marathon & Half Marathon
Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park
The Marathon is capped at 100 runners. The course begins and ends in Arizona neat the AZ/Utah stateline. The route includes several miles in the backcountry of the Valley through some dramatic, rarely seen landscapes. This is a challenging marathon mostly on dirt and jeep roads and is one of the most scenic routes in the country. There is a significant amount of sand on this route. Highlights include the Arches loop and Totem Pole. The Half Marathon is the main Valley loop road – a graded dirt road; the event is capped at 400 runners. A competitive, rigorous 4-mileTrail Race – the Wildcat 4-Miler – will be held on the Wildcat Trail around and between East and West Mitten on a challenging route. For all races, there will be signage and pin flags at main junctions and along the course. There will be spotters at key locations.
Your registration includes professional timing, light pre-race food, finisher’s medal, on-course support, long-sleeve tech shirt, post-race food and entertainment. All proceeds benefit community health and wellness programs on the Navajo Nation.
