About Moab's Red Hot
The Red Hot is located northwest of Moab, Utah just west of Arches National Park. Red Hot runners will have majestic views of the La Sal Mountains to the southeast and breathtaking views of Canyonlands National Park to the west. The course is a combination of jeep trail and singletrack that will quickly become one of your favorite winter challenges.
New in 2023, a 50 Mile distance! A course worthy of adding to the Triple Crown of Moab, runners will be treated to some amazing views and stunning rim trails. This one may be one of the very best Moab trail race courses, and we can't wait to show it off!

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.
