This event is supported by Dan Mick Jeep Tours

Our Moab events could not happen without the help of Dan Mick Jeep Tours. Many of the Mad Moose Events’ aid stations are in extremely isolated areas, with rugged 4x4 routes to get to them. Dan Mick ensures that we are able to provide supplies to our runners, which allows us to continue to bring you to rarely experienced areas of the Moab backcountry.

 

Dan Mick Jeep Tours has been assisting Mad Moose Events for many years. They are as equally skilled as aid station volunteers as they are navigating the 4x4 trails. Dan Mick Jeep Tours currently provides support for Moab’s Red Hot Ultra, Behind the Rocks Ultra, Amasa Trail Race, Thelma and Louise Marathon and Half, as well as Arches Marathon and Half.

 

While you are staying in Moab, please take a look at their website and book you, your friends, and your family a tour. They offer sunset, half day morning, half day afternoon, and full day guided trips on many of the most popular off-roading routes in the area.
