About Bears Ears Ultra

Introducing Bears Ears Ultra! A 50 mile, 50K, 30K event hosted in the quiet Abajo Mountains of Monticello, Utah.  The course treats runners to views overlooking Canyonlands National Park and the Bears Ears National Monument. You can even catch views of Monument Valley and the Bears Ears Buttes! Sunrise over Canyonlands National Park will greet runners as they start. Look closely, off in the distance is Dead Horse Point State Park, Six Shooter Peaks, Behind the Rocks Wilderness Study Area, and the La Sal Mountains. Once climbing up the Robertson Pasture Trail, runners can see as far as Colorado's San Juan Mountains. Topping out at almost 11000 ft, runners will have wide open views of Southeastern Utah’s canyon country too! The course travels through aspen groves on smooth singletrack for sometime, but also contains some very technical trails to keep things interesting.
