On race day, you may notice some people with different markings on their bib. If you look at the special indication area of the bib, you may see our Wander Project logo (that tiny teal circle in the top right corner), they are running as part of our Charity Bib Program. To support our great charity partners, check out page 12.
In and around Zion National Park, archaeological evidence is found of Native Americans from the Archaic culture, from Ancestral Puebloan (Anasazi) and Fremont cultures, and most recently from Southern Paiute culture. The Paiute called this place Mukuntuweap. Mukkuntuweap is believed to mean “straight canyon” or “straight river,” though there is also record that the Paiute more frequently referred to the canyon as “Loogoon” which means “quiver of arrows”).
Today a hike to Zion Canyon Overlook may give you a glimpse of this “straight canyon” that inspired the name.
