Arches Ultra 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.
From Center St. and Main St (Highway 191), head north out of town, approximately 10 miles. Make a left into Gemini Bridges parking lot. We highly encourage carpooling to the start. Parking is limited.
There will be parking attendants pointing out parking spots. If you park in an unacceptable location, BLM will issue tickets. Please adhere to parking attendants instructions to avoid tickets and ensure we can continue to work with the BLM for future events hosted by Mad Moose Events.
There is paid camping at the start/finish line. It is first come, first served.
