November 2: Moab Trail Marathon
Kid’s Dash, 5K, 13.1, 26.2
Fall in the desert brings cooler temperatures perfect for running and taking in red rock vistas and challenging terrain, from canyon bottoms to canyon rims (yes, there’s climbing — about 3,500 feet of elevation gain and loss for the marathon), sand, singletrack, Moab slickrock, creek crossings and dirt road, with a few obstacles and fixed rope sections thrown in to keep you guessing. The 13.1-mile distance is the 2013 Trail Half Marathon National Championship, so expect to see fast times.
