About Arches Ultra - Currently Sold Out

Grand County currently has special event attendee mandates in place, based on the Utah Department of Health risk assessment level. Because of these mandates, we have limited our numbers to meet the high risk assessment limits. No additional spots will be opened for this event. See our social media pages or subscribe to our newsletter for the most updated information. We will not allow additional runners into the event. It is sold out. Please do not email asking for an exception.

Arches Ultra is Moab’s newest trail race, and it travels along the border of Arches National Park, using Bar M, Klonzo, and Klondike Trail Systems.  The trails are smooth and easy at points, technical slick rock at others, and there’s even some sand to shake things up.    Winter is a great time to be in Moab running, and we’ve chosen a lower elevation run, that will give you views of the towering Moab cliffs, Arches National Park, and the snow covered La Sals.
