About Moab's Red Hot

The Red Hot is located northwest of Moab, Utah just west of Arches National Park. Red Hot runners have majestic views of the La Sal Mountains to the southeast and breathtaking views of Canyonlands National Park to the west. Runners begin their race by climbing a jeep road with astounding views of Arches National Park. With its combination of jeep trails and singletrack, this event will quickly become one of your favorite winter challenges. 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!

Moab's Red Hot is part of our Run Moab Series. Check out all of our Moab races!

Directions to Start/Finish

GPS Coordinates (Click for Google Map):

38.65628, -109.67812

From Center St. and Main St (Highway 191), head north out of town, approximately 10 miles.  Make a left into Gemini Bridges parking lot. The parking lot is one way, counter clockwise, traffic. There is a special drop off zone notated on the map. The drop off zone does not allow for cars to park. Be ready to exit vehicle immediately.


Oversized vehicle and camper parking is located across the street, at the Bar M parking lot. You must use the lot at the trailhead. Lots closer to the highway are private property. There is a short walk over to the start/finish line.  **Do not cross highway, instead use pedestrian path under the highway. Consider carpooling!** 


There will be parking attendants pointing out parking spots. Treat parking attendants with respect. They have the final say in your parking location. Runners will be held responsible for crew/spectators. Yelling and being aggressive with parking attendants will result in asking you to leave the private property permanently. If you park in an unacceptable location, you risk being ticketed. Do not park on highway. Do not drop off on highway. If you do so, you will be denied entry onto private property where event is hosted. This will ensure we can continue to host this event. Parking rules are a part of our safety plan

See Race Guide for parking lot maps.

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.

Volunteer with Mad Moose

Join the Mad Moose Herd and make a difference in the running community by volunteering at one of our upcoming events. It's always a fun time! 


As a volunteer you'll have the chance to support runners. As a thank you for your time and effort, we offer credits toward free race entries of your choice. (Friends and Family - You can earn race credits for your runner to use toward their next Mad Moose Event!)

Whether you're a seasoned runner or just love being a part of the action, we have volunteer opportunities for everyone.
