Introducing Bears Ears Ultra! A 50 mile, 50K, 30K event hosted in the quiet Abajo Mountains, overlooking Canyonlands National Park and the Bears Ears National Monument. You can even catch views of Monument Valley and the Bears Ears Buttes! Topping out at almost 11000 ft, runners will have wide open views of Southeastern Utah’s canyon country. The course travels through aspen groves on smooth singletrack for sometime, but also contains some very technical trails to keep things interesting
