Epic trail races through surreal landscapes make Monument Valley Ultra one of the most stunning race experiences in the Southwest. Join us the first weekend of March for a 50-miler, 50K and a challenging trail half marathon. The on-course support, bountiful food and live local music on the trails make this a unique event among the iconic landscapes of the Valley. The 1500 foot ascent of Mitchell Mesa in just over a mile takes you to the mesa rim, providing perhaps the most stunning views you will ever see. A course preview, blue corn snacks and Navajo tea will be available at the Welcome Center, which is a 5-minute drive from the start line and roughly half-way between our two host hotels: The View and Gouldings Lodge. We hope that you will join us for a memorable race weekend in this very special place!
