Ultra Adventures Ultra Marathons

You only have so many summers.
Spend them wisely.

We offer environmentally sustainable, destination trail races in unforgettable locations. You, as a trailrunner, will have the opportunity to experience the landscape in a way that few others are able due to the long miles that you can log in the backcountry in a single outing.

You'll walk away from our races feeling like you've pushed your limits physically while being visually rewarded as well. In addition, you can take pride in the fact that you have participated a groundbreakingly sustainable event, with zero waste sent to the landfill or wastewater treatment facilities.

We currently focus on two of the most stunning regions of the planet, the "Grand Circle" of the West and California's Redwoods area. Each of our races in The Grand Circle Trail Series is completely unique from the others due to the amazing geological diversity in the region. This area has the highest concentration of national parks in the country as well as tribal parks, national monuments, and wilderness areas that are every bit as amazing. 

We strive to provide the special touches at our races that will leave you with fond memories that remain long after the pain of running them subsides. What better place to meet new friends in the ultrarunning community? You won't regret joining us for your next wilderness running adventure!

Tough but breathtaking

I ran Bryce as my first 50k last year. Ultra adventures races are tough but breathtaking.

I was recently featured on the Boldly Went podcast sharing the story of running my first 100-miler at Bryce (mine is the second story). I look forward to returning to Bryce for a do-over, but I also wouldn't change my first experience for anything. Thanks!

Ran this in 2017 and 2018. Very well ran, thank you. Aid stations were very good! Grafton mesa marking was much better this year. I have mixed feelings on the cemetery decent and climb missing, that detail likely helped my overall time but was looking forward to that challenge. Although during the race I was like thank God I'm hanging a left here and not a right down that switch back. Found myself questioning the direction of the path several times, however I expected that and am OK with that. I did not catch the name of the person that did most of the talking at the pre run meeting and did the MC at the finish line this year. Maybe I caught he was the race director. Any way, I was impressed with him. Great character and professionalism with genuine concern for the runners. Such a good race. Next year I will do another VR event.
