Course Descriptions & Maps

  • Trail Half Marathon
  • 55K
  • 50 Miler
  • 100 Miler


Minimum Pace Time: 11 hours

On this course you will experience one of the most photographed land features in the country, Horseshoe Bend of the Colorado River. After traversing the desert sand and slickrock to reach these unbelievable features, the run finishes out with a single loop on smooth single track around the plateau that the city of Page, AZ is built upon with jaw-dropping views of Lake Powell. 

Runners will head directly to Slickrock Aid station which is about 2 miles into the race. The trail to Slickrock Aid is very soft sand. From there, runners will traverse the open desert for about 3 miles before reaching the famous Horseshoe Bend of the Colorado River. An aid station will be set up near the parking lot of this spectacular overlook (Horseshoe Bend Aid).

The next section weaves through slickrock along the rim of the Colorado River, in an area that few humans have traveled which offers views that are beyond words. This section can be very challenging to keep a steady pace due to the constant elevation changes, slickrock, and sand that you will be running through. It does however offer some amazing vantage points of the Colorado River. You might struggle to want to put your camera away.

After crossing back over Hwy 89, runners will fuel up at the Waterholes Aid station before dropping into gorgeous Waterholes Slot Canyon, a favorite of most runners in past years.

After about a mile in the slot, runners will exit and head back towards the city of Page on a long, exposed, and sandy desert traverse which takes you through the Horseshoe Bend and Slickrock aid stations for a second time. Upon entering Page and climbing up onto the plateau which the city is built upon, the route ties into the smooth singletrack of the Page Rim trail. This is a fast and very runnable ten mile loop with 4 road crossings and spectacular views of Lake Powell and Glen Canyon Dam.

*Note: The 55K does not pass through Upper Antelope Canyon.  It does pass through Waterholes Slot Canyon. Only the 100 mile and 50 mile courses run through Upper Antelope Canyon.

Avenza Offline Course Maps

Now you can use our maps offline with a gps-enabled device!

We plan to mark the course with such rigor that you should not need your own map to help you find your way. However, we have experienced blown down signs and vandalism in the past. We recommend downloading the free Avenza app (available for iOS, and Android devices) before the event. There you can find our uploaded maps that work without cell coverage.

Here's how:
1. Download the free app "AVENZA MAPS" to your smart-phone or tablet while your device is online. It’s compatible with iOS, and Android devices.
2. Open the app > Tap "Store" (Shopping Cart Icon) > Tap "Find Maps" > Search for the specific distance you would like to download. Type your search exactly as it appears below:
     Antelope Canyon 100 mile Ultra
     Antelope Canyon 50 mile Ultra
     Antelope Canyon 55km Ultra
     Antelope Canyon Half Marathon
3. Tap on the label on the map > tap "install" and the map will begin to download.
4. The map is now ready to use “offline”. Simply open the app, click on the Map and your GPS location will appear on the map.

Ultra Marathon Aid Stations

At our ultra marathons the aid stations play a critical role in getting you across the finish line. Before mile 26, we have a more basic set of foods available at each aid station including things like:

  • Water
  • GoGnarly electrolyte drink
  • Fresh-cut fruit
  • Soda
  • A variety of both salty and sweet items

After mile 26, the aid stations will also have real food that may include:

  • Boiled potatoes
  • Tortillas w/ Nutella
  • PB&J
  • Turkey sandwiches
  • Dill pickles
  • Chips
  • Candies

All aid stations are stocked with self serve aid stations supplies such as anti-chafing agent, and sunscreen. In addition, we will have a limited supply of gels, salt caps, and electrolyte caps.

If any item is of critical importance to your ability to finish, please consider putting it in your drop bag. While we want to do our best to help each runner finish the race, food selection is often a guess as to what each runner will want or need, and we occasionally guess wrong. For example, if you always need a Coca Cola soda at mile 80, do not count on the aid station to provide this; you should put it in your drop bag.

At our busiest aid stations we try and staff a medical volunteer to help with larger issues. See your race guide for more details. 

All aid stations have composting toilets.
Ultra Marathon Aid Station

The 100 miler will pass through 20 fully stocked aid stations.
The 50 miler has 10 aid stations.
The 55K has 8 aid stations.
The Trail Half Marathon has 3 aid stations.

NOTE: There is NO PARKING at the Horseshoe Bend aid station. Crew members wanting to meet their runner at Horseshoe Bend can take a shuttle from the race staging area. Shuttles will pick up/drop off crew approximately every 15 minutes while the aid station is open. Failure to observe this may jeopardize the entire event.

Pre/Post Race Meal

For the race meal, you'll have the choice of a Navajo Taco or wood fired pizza. You must present your bib stub to redeem your meal, which will be available at check-in on Friday or from 2-10pm on Saturday. Crew and spectators can purchase food at the finish line.  

Time Requirements

All who cross the finish line will receive a finisher award regardless of finish time. However, if you finish past the minimum pace time, you will be disqualified from the race and receive a DNF.

During the race, any runner may drop down to a short distance to receive the shorter distance’s finisher award. Doing so will disqualify the runner from the original distance and will be listed as a DNF at the original distance.

We publish a minimum pace time as a reference for the minimum pace you must maintain to finish before receiving a DNF. The Race Officials have the right to remove anyone from the race for any reason.

“Grim Reaper” check points are certain times cutoffs in the race that you must pass before the posted time or you will be required to drop out of the race. Non-Compliance with the Race Officials instructions will result in a DNF and may result in a ban from future events at our discretion. There are 4 Grim Reapers times for the 100 mile distance, and 2 Grim Reapers times for the 50 mile distance. 

Overall awards will be scored based on gun time.  Both gun time and chip times will be published.

Drop Bags

Personal Drop Bags will be allowed at the following 4 aid stations

  • Horseshoe
  • Water Holes
  • Page Rim
  • Powell

Please follow these guidelines: 

  • All bags must be labeled with name, bib # (in large print), aid station, and race distance. Optional, but a good idea if your label comes off, is a card inside with the same information and contact information. Please label your bags the day before the race on your own or at check in. Trying to label your bags on race morning is not a good idea. It is often dark and busy. 
  • All drop bags must be left in designated drop off location by 8PM the night before race day.
  • No valuables or fragile items in your drop bags. We are not responsible for any lost/stolen items.
  • Watch the weather forecast. If there is any chance of rain, place your items in zip lock bags inside of your drop bag.
  • Minimum size: Gallon size freezer zip lock. No grocery store plastic bags or garbage bags.
  • Maximum size: Shoe box for single pass and daytime aid stations. Small duffle or small carry on for multiple pass aid stations.

At aid stations where drop bags are allowed, there will be a designated area for drop bags that runners wish to have returned to the finish line for retrieval. Drop bags will be returned to the starting line throughout the day, but it is the responsibility of the runner to put their drop bag in the “return” area.

Note: Alcoholic drinks are prohibited at this race and are not allowed on the Navajo Reservation. Breaking this rule jeopardizes our permits and will result in immediate disqualification and may result in a ban from future events. Alcohol within Page City limits is allowed, but please refrain from posting your consumption online.

Pacers & Crew

Crew access is allowed at the Horseshoe Bend, Page Rim, and Lake Powell aid stations.

Crew access to Horseshoe Bend AS
Due to limited parking and high runner numbers, there is NO PARKING at Horseshoe Bend. Crew must be shuttled in to the Horseshoe Bend aid station from the start/finish area. Shuttles will pick up/drop off crew approximately every 15 minutes while the aid station is open. Please respect this rule. Parking at Horseshoe Bend for the race will jeopardize the entire event which allows participants to run in some of the most unique areas of this desert.

Crew access to Page Rim AS
Crew can park at the staging area (start/finish) and walk up a side trail up to the mesa where Page Rim aid station is located. We will put a few signs or markers up to direct crew up to the aid station from the parking lot of the staging area. If crew needs to park closer, they can park along Sage Avenue, Veronica Court, Cheryl Avenue, or Diane Court and walk over to the aid station. Directions to parking near Page Rim aid station.

Crew access to Lake Powell AS
Crew can park along 20th Avenue and walk over to the Lake Powell aid station. There is also a small gravel parking lot on the corner of 20th Avenue and Ridge Way. DO NOT PARK ALONG RIDGE WAY. Additional parking can be found at the Lake View Elementary School nearby. Directions to parking near Lake Powell Aid Station


Pacers for both the 50-mile distance & 100-mile distance can join their runner at the 2nd pass at the Horseshoe Bend Aid Station, Page Rim Trail or Lake Powell Aid Station. Pacers joining at Horseshoe Bend cannot drive to the aid station but will need to take the shuttle, as there is no parking at Horseshoe Bend. Pacers may drive to Page Rim and Lake Powell Aid Station.

Note: You are responsible for the actions of your crew and pacers. If their behavior is deemed inappropriate by race staff, you will be disqualified. Please let them know this and only choose crew members that will treat our volunteers and staff with respect while you are out on the course.

Due to the remote location of this race, we will not be able to provide live updates for your friends/family to follow you from home. We do have satellite phones and/or radios at the aid stations so that we can account for runners on the course and keep communication lines open among our staff members, but we do not have the ability to communicate runner whereabouts to your loved ones during the event.

If you would like to let friends and family know your status on the course, you can text them from the areas of the course with cell service (there are many points on the course where reception is good enough to get a text out, but it can be difficult to get a phone call out.)

If you're worried about your cell phone battery, you can turn it off after sending a text, leave it in airplane mode, or carry a small battery backup device. There are also apps available such as Endomondo which will automatically update your whereabouts when you come into a reception area. (These apps tend to drain your cell phone battery and the use of a battery backup device will be necessary if you plan on leaving it on for the duration of the event.) 

Race Rules & Guidelines

The main route will be marked with pink flags.  Any route variations unique to your distance will be marked with the color of your bib. Any tricky junctions will be marked well with signs and flour arrows. A piece of highly reflective tape is attached to each trail marker that may be encountered at night. 

It is the responsibility of the runner to check in at each aid station (coming in only, no need to check out of the aid station.) Seek out the aid station worker wearing the fluorescent orange vest and give them your bib number. Failure to check in at an aid station can result in disqualification. If you drop out of the race YOU MUST TURN IN YOUR BIB TO THE NEAREST AID STATION CAPTAIN. If you fail to do this, you will be responsible for all search party costs.

Finish Line

We hope that you will join us at the finish line for as long as you’d like to welcome home the other finishers. One of our goals is to create a welcoming environment for you to hang out with old and new friends. We will have the following amenities present at the finish line to keep you comfortable- seating, fire pits, Navajo tacos, pizza, heated tents, drink recovery tent, medical tent, and a camping area.

Awards & Swag

100 Miler finishers will be awarded a hand-crafted belt buckle. Each are made using organic materials gathered on the course and preserved in resin. Other distance finishers will be awarded their choice of either a locally-made award or a finisher medal. The locally-made awards include Navajo jewelry pieces, ceramic mugs, and various crafts handmade in the Copper Canyon of Mexico. Special awards will be given to the **top 3 overall male and female finishers for each distance as well. A Navajo family will also be selling some of their hand made jewelry at the start/finish line. 

**At our ultras we base the overall winning times off gun time, not chip time. Here's why: we offer a larger, more unique overall winner prize and if we waited to for all chip times to make sure we have the fastest we wouldn't be able to give out any of the awards and would have to ship them. These awards don't ship well, and we want to be able to give them out in person at the race - it's funner that way. If you are interested in competing for a top award you will need to line up at the front at the starting line so your chip time and the gun time are the same. 

Zero Waste Event


All Vacation Races events are zero waste, with the goal of sending no trash produced at the event to the landfill. We've created a system that recycles/reuses everything, but it requires your help to make it work. Please place trash in the appropriate containers. Littering on the course will result in disqualification.


We also use Great Outdoors Composting Portable Toilets which conserve water, eliminates the use of harmful chemicals, and create a nutrient rich soil amenity. It is the best pooping experience you will ever have. To learn more or to have them at your event visit or ask the race officials for more information.


We encourage all runners to carry their own form of hydration. Whether it be a cup, handheld, waist pack, or running pack- it’s up to each runner’s preference. We do not provide disposable cups at aid stations or anywhere at the event.

However, we will have reusable mugs at aid stations that are washed after use. There will be water and recovery drink at the finish line, but no cups. Please use your own methods to fill up at the finish line. We will have some limited compostable cups, but these are unnecessary if your bring your own cups.

Packing List

Whether this race will be your first ultra marathon, your first trail race, or your first time running in this area of the country- we recommend coming prepared. We've created a packing list to help you think through what you may need for your race, so you can minimize stress and feel prepared. 

Travel and Lodging

Getting Here

Las Vegas International Airport is about 4 hrs from Page. A quick scenic detour would be to drive through Zion National Park on Hwy 9 to Hwy 89, then south to Kanab and east to Page.  (This would add about an hour of driving time.)  

It is about 4 1/2 hours from Phoenix to Page, but the south rim of the Grand Canyon is next to this route, making it easy to plan a side trip.  

Salt Lake City is 5 hrs and 45 min, but this route passes within 15 minutes of the entrances into both Bryce Canyon and Zion national parks, making it convenient to detour and see these places.

Lodging / Camping

Click here to view a list of hotels located in the small city of Page, AZEach of these hotels offers quick access for your crew to meet you while you’re running the Page Rim trail, which encircles the mesa that the city is built upon. 

Lake Powell Resort is a luxury resort located on Lake Powell, a ten minute drive from the starting line. They are offering a discount to those participating in the Antelope Canyon Ultras. The rate is $69 + tax and fees for the lake view, marina view or traditional guest rooms. Book early and get the lake view at or by calling central reservation at 888-896-3829. Use the code ULTRA to get the discounted rate.

Things to See and Do

We realize that the races in this series are out of the way for most runners, and it may be the only time that you visit these breathtaking areas. One of our biggest desires at Ultra Adventures is that you walk away from this event having fully experienced what the region has to offer. Even a 100 mile course can only capture a portion of these unique areas. We want you to get into and explore the heart of the national park, walk through that remote slot canyon, see that incredible overlook that is not part of the course. Most often, these spectacular areas are protected as part of a national park, monument, or wilderness area where races are not permitted as part of the management plan. These are often the areas most frequented by tourists, but  are nevertheless places that we feel you must see while you’re visiting. It is our hope that through a more in depth exploration of the area, you will become more connected to the local landscape, thus creating more stakeholders in its preservation.

Here is our list of favorite trails in the surrounding area:

Buckskin Gulch- (distance varies, minimum- 3.5 miles out and back from Wire Pass trailhead to petroglyphs and Buckskin confluence)- Take picture anywhere in Buckskin Gulch- can be accessed from Buckskin Gulch trailhead or Wire Pass trailhead. Click here for trail description.   If the conditions are right, you can make it all the way to the Paria Confluence.  If there is a lot of standing water, turn back. Attempting to run a through route this time of year is NOT RECOMMENDED.  Click on this story to read why. You will need to pay the$6/day hiking fee to the BLM for this leg (envelopes available at the trailhead).

Cable Trail to Colorado River- Take picture at the Colorado River. This one is easily accessible from Page, located just across the bridge on the opposite side of the canyon.  Click here for trail description.   Click here for a video clip

Cathedral Wash, Jackass Canyon, or Soap Creek to the Colorado River- Choose just one or all three of these canyons to access the Colorado River within the boundaries of Grand Canyon national park. If Hwy 89 is washed out and not operational, we recommend doing a different hike as the alternate route adds an extra 45 minutes driving time. Click here for trail descriptions

Paria River- Your feet will get wet on this one, but you really should check it out if you have the time. February is not the ideal time of year to go deep into the Paria due to the cold and ice, but it is amazing nonetheless. 

Wahweap Hoodoos/Toadstools- These hoodoos are pretty unique.  Big boulders balanced on tall, narrow bases.  

Navajo National Monument- While the guided hikes into the canyon to see the ruins up close are not offered in the winter months, you can still get an amazing view from the opposite side of the canyon via a trail from the visitor's center that's about a half mile. This would be a nice and easy post-race hike to do, and I highly recommend driving through Shonto if you're coming from Page.  

Lower Antelope Canyon- Must be accompanied by a Navajo guide.  Price is between $25-$30, depending on the company.

Kayaking Lower Antelope Canyon (kayaks can be rented in Page and fastened to almost any vehicle).

Kayaking the Colorado River above Lees FerryUnbelievable!! Your only chance to paddle the Grand Canyon is between Lee’s Ferry and Glen Canyon Dam, where it’s not officially part of the national park. Due to limited permits issued to rafting companies, the waiting list and price make rafting the Grand Canyon out of reach for most. Click on the link for info on kayak rental and a ferry/tow upriver service.

Rainbow Bridge National Monument (via boat or trail)- While this one is pricey ($125) due to the 3 hour scenic boat ride (each way) to access it, the arch (natural bridge) is unlike any other you’ll ever lay eyes on. Boat trips are limited to Saturdays in the off season unless we get 20 runners to sign up for a Friday trip. Contact Lake Powell Resorts if interested. 

Navajo Mountain to Rainbow Bridge- (35 miles round trip)- This hike requires a lot of planning and is truly epic, traversing sacred lands to the largest natural bridge in the world. I will be very jealous if you're able to get this adventure in during your trip as it has been high on my bucket list for many years. Make sure you get appropriate permits and have maps and supplies for the worst case scenario. It would be best to hire a Navajo guide for this one. 

The Wave (Coyote Buttes)- I wish it were possible to include this at the top of our list. Such an amazing hike and it's so close (shares the same trailhead as the Buckskin Gulch/Wire Pass hike). But the BLM only gives out ten permits a day and has up to 90 applicants, so there is a daily lottery, for which you must drive to Kanab and be present just to be in the lottery. Call the BLM office found in the above link for more info.

White Pocket- This is almost as cool as the Wave (from what I hear)- Only problem is that it's a long 4wd approach so it's very difficult to reach.

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Lorna – This year’s race had a 15-hour cutoff time, with a hard cutoff time 1 hour 15 minutes in and and 6 hours 20 minutes in. It will be similar to this but the detailed schedule will be posted on our website soon.

        Thanks, C. Bird (registered for the half-marathon but didn’t see campground registration)

        • Kaelee Clifford says:

  • Mike B says:

    How is the 50m for using minimalist shoes? Usually anything besides driveway gravel is fine for me.

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Mike – This course all about the sand. If you’re find in sand you should be okay.

      • Tam Vo says:

        Kaelee, is that just for the 50M? How about the half…smooth single track…trail shoes not necessary?…regular running shoes ok?

        • Kaelee Clifford says:

          The half marathon is not nearly as sandy as the other distances. It will be trail with some sand but it’s more packed. Regular running shoes will be fine.

  • Dot M says:

    Looking to do the half in antelope canyon. I am normally a road runner and am worried how much single track there is on the half distance. I ran this route years ago and most seemed like it was on a dirt road or dirt path. Are there any really hard sections for a newbie off roader on the half course?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Dot – You shouldn’t have any trouble on this course. There is a lot of single track but it is totally runnable for a new trail runner.

  • Maricarmen Rodriguez says:

    Is this event for expert runners and hikers? I love nature. I just started running about 2 years ago. I am thinking about taking the next step – that is moving from 5k and 10k to half marathon and this event will be an amazing way to do that. Thank you in advance.

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Maricarmen – This course isn’t necessarily for experienced runners, but you will want to be trained and prepared. There is a 5 hour time limit for the half marathon course, so as long as you can finish in that time you will be fine.

  • Tabatha Collins says:

    Hi! I’m curious if any of your ultra running races are certified or sanctioned by USATF, IAU, or IAFF? I’m trying to set a world record in 2019 and this is one of the requirements. I’m specifically hoping to race Antelope Canyon 55k or 50 miler.
    Thank you!
    Tabatha Collins

  • Anita says:

    Will there be porta pots on the 50 milie course/near the aid stations or just at the start and finish?

  • Richard Burger says:

    the 1/2 marathon trail is it as good as the longer ones or are they the best.? the pictures and video look great would be disappointed if I came all that way and that was not what I was running.

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Richard – The half marathon trail is beautiful, but half marathoners will not run through any slot canyons. The 50 mile and 100 mile races go through the Antelope Canyon, while the 50k runs through Waterholes Canyon.

  • Angelet says:

    For the 50 Miler is the course all sand? Runners must pass “Grim Reaper” Check… what’s this?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Angelet – The course is very sandy. We highly recommend gaitors for this course. The Grim Reaper time is the hard cutoff time you must hit to avoid being removed from the course.

      • Angelet says:

        Thank you, Kaelee. One more question: How does a person on the East Coast train for this race with the difference in elevation and terrain? Would love to consider this race, but Im worried about the altitude difference and all.

        • Kaelee Clifford says:

          Hi Angelet – I would find somewhere sandy, maybe the beach, to do some sand running. And then find some hills to add into your training.

  • Jen says:

    For 2019, at what miles/times are the grim reaper checkpoints on the 50 miler? It determines whether I sign up for 50 miler or 55k.


    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Jen – They will be similar to this year’s times but I don’t have the specific times yet. I’ll post here as soon as I find out.

  • Jesse says:

    Hello, 2 things. Do you have the grim reaper times for the 100m, also do you have a better image of the map that could be emailed to me? I tried printing the one off the site and cant really make it out. Thanks!

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Jesse – The grim reaper times haven’t been posted yet but they will be very similar to last year’s times. I am checking to see if there is a better map for printing.

  • Katie says:

    I ordered two shirts as add-ons when I paid for my half marathon when will I receive those?

  • Jenna says:

    I see the 50 miler is sold out. Is there a waitlist and how do we get on it? For now, we’ll probably rego for the 55K but would prefer the 50 mile.


  • Jessica Weisner says:

    Are you allowed to wear headphones for music on the course?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Jessica – Yes, you can wear headphones on the course, just be sure to be aware of the runners around you.

  • Bernard Hohman says:

    I am planning on running the Antelope Canyon 100. I see that there are two “grim reaper” cut-offs for the race. Can you tell me what aid station and what time these hard cut-offs are?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Bernard – I apologize for the delayed response. The grim reaper times and locations have been confirmed yet but they will most likely be very similar to this year’s race: They are Antelope Canyon (first pass) before 7:30 am and Horseshoe Aid Station (first pass) by 12:30 pm on Saturday. These times can vary – we will post the as soon as possible.

  • K says:

    how far is the lake powell resort from the start line?

  • Bill Angotta says:

    Hello. We ran the Yosemite half in May of 2018 and are considering this half for our 2019 destination race.The scenery looks incredible. Are the pictures on the site from the ultra runs or will we see the same on the half marathon?

  • Becky says:

    Is the 50 or 100 mile race an ITRA point qualifying event? Thanks.

  • Janel Stewart says:

    Can you tell me more about the charity bibs? Which charity receives the money? What if we do not raise the minimum? Do I collect money?

    I can’t seem to find info on the site ? Is there a link?

    Thank you!

  • Anna says:

    Dear all,
    Is there a waiting list for the 55 k? I saw that registration is closed already?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Anna – Unfortunately, there is not a waitlist for this event. There are some charity bibs available – check out our charity bib program here:
      You can also try to buy a bib from another runner who cannot make it. We usually see runners post their bibs for sale once refunds are no longer available – December 17th. The best place to find bibs for sale is on our Facebook page, Ultra Adventures. The last option is to sign up for the 100-miler and only run 55k. Doing it this way means you won’t get an official time but you will get a finisher award.

  • Liz says:

    Could this course be for first time half-marathon runners since there is no “regular” half and only the trail? If running with someone, is it possible to still run with them on this trail? Thank you!

  • Walter Strach III says:

    Is there a waiting list for the 50 mile or 55k? My wife and daughter want to run the 1/2 marathon but I don’t want to register them if there is no event for me. Would have signed up sooner but have been running in the Grand Canyon and Brice Canyon the last couple of weeks.



    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Walt – Unfortunately, there is not a waitlist for this event. Your best bet to get into the race is to try to buy a bib from another runner who cannot make it. We usually see runners post their bibs for sale once refunds are no longer available – December 17th. The best place to find bibs for sale is on our Facebook page, Ultra Adventures.

  • Susanna Hawkins says:

    Hello, I am interested in signing up for the 100 miler. How many entrants do you take so I can watch the list as it fills? Also how quickly does camping at the start fill up?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Susanna – The 100-miler doesn’t usually sell out – there is a 300 runner cap that we most likely won’t reach.

  • Shannon says:

    ISO: 50 Mile race entry(s). Looking for someone that would like to transfer their 50 Mile bib (or 2 of them for 2 different people!)
    Thank you, Shannon (Aug 3rd, 2018).

  • kimmy j says:


    How does one apply for any job openings with vacation races or Antelope Canyon Ultra Marathons?

  • Catherine says:

    How can I find someone who wants to transfer a bib?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Catherine – We suggest posting on our Facebook page, Ultra Adventures. We usually see bibs for sale once refunds are no longer available – December 17th.

    • Natasha says:

      Catherine – what is the distance that you are looking to transfer?

      • Sam says:

        I’m looking for a half marathon bib, if you happen to have one you’d be willing to part with! Racing with a friend who is already registered.

  • Steve Yob says:

    I am in the half with Lynn McDaniel. I am also trying to do the 50 states which require a marathon distance. I did not think you would fill up this quickly. Can I run a longer distance to get this done as one of my states? I would be greatly appreciative it.

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Steve – You can register for the 100-mile event and then only run 50 miles or 55k. Doing it this way means you will get a finisher award but not an official time, as you would have dropped from the distance you registered for.

  • Sarah Ottosen says:

    Does the half marathon have any portion that’s down inside the canons, or is that only for the further distances?

  • Lauren Smith says:

    What mile/pace are grim reaper cutoffs in 50 miler for Antelope Canyon

  • Kelsey says:

    If you only do the half marathon do you get to see all the places shown in the video? And do you get to run through the canyons as shown?

  • Jaime says:

    Wondering if I register for the 100M if I can transfer to 50M if needed? Thanks

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Jaime – If the 50-miler wasn’t sold out that would be a possibility, but because it’s sold out you cannot. You can drop distance during the race if needed. You will qualify for a finisher award for the farthest distance completed but with will get a DNF for the original 100-mile distance.

  • Linda Scott says:

    Is there a training program for this race?

  • Anthony says:

    At what point can pacers join the 100 mile race?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Anthony – Pacers can join their runners at Horseshoe Bend aid station. Paces have to take the shuttle there, as there is no parking at that aid station.

  • Claudie Leece says:

    What is the time limit on the Half Marathon?

  • Tara says:

    I will be in the area at the same time as the Antelope Canyon Marathon 2019. I am a runner, but do not plan to do this event. I do plan to visit the Canyon and do not want to be in the madness of race prep when visiting. Can you tell me when set up begins for the trail? I may decide to adjust the time of my visit. Thank you!!

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Tara – The trails will be marked Wednesday before the race. You should run into too much madness with the trail marking and race set up.

  • Russell Herman says:

    For the Antelope Canyon 100 miler, at what mile can a pacer jump in?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Russell – Pacers can join at Horseshoe Bend aid station but you must take the shuttle – there is no parking at that aid station.

  • Susan Sanders says:

    Hi, my name is Susan Sanders. I got an email indicating I can still register for the 34 mile run. I might have deleted it. It was a ticket to confirm I can still register. Please help me find it. Susan Sanders AKA Susan Yellowhair or Harper.

  • Jessica Anthony says:

    Can you walk the race 1/2 Marathon Antelope canyon. ?

  • Norberto Roman says:

    Question? What’s the process if I decide to ask for a refund? I might not be able to race, don’t know yet based on the doctors decision.

      • Andrew says:

        Kaelee, are we able to purchase other people’s bibs? If so, Noberto, I will buy your bib if this is allowable.

        • Kaelee Clifford says:

          Hi Andrew – Yes, you can buy another runner’s bib by following these instructions:

          1. Sign In to RunSignUp

          4. Click the Transfer To Another Runner menu item
          5. Fill out all required fields
          6. Select either Transfer as a Gift or Transfer for Refund

      • Sam says:

        After refunds are processed, will those bibs be offered on the website again? Or only at the expo?

        • Kaelee Clifford says:

          Hi Sam – Registration is actually oversold based on historical data for refunds/transfers/deferments, so those bibs are not made available.

    • Derrick Searle says:

      I am interested in buying a 50 mile bib. If you are unfortunately unable to run, and you are signed up for the 50 mile, I would Gladly pay you full price.

      • Sarah says:

        I have a bib for the 50 mile that I can’t use due to persistent injury. I’m happy to sell it to you for cost and transfer it to you if you’re still looking. Feel free to email me at ‘’.

    • kristen says:

      Norberto, I am looking for 50k or even half marathon bib. If you aren’t able to run and would like to sell/transfer it, I would like it! Please let me know and I hope you recover and able to run very quickly!

  • Andrew says:

    Hello, is there waitlist or exchange to purchase bibs?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Andrew – There is not a waitlist for this event. Your best bet to get into the race is to try to buy a bib from another runner who cannot make it. The best place to find runners selling their bibs is on the event page on our Vacation Races Facebook page.

  • Sam says:

    I promised a friend I’d run the half with her, but didn’t get my bib before it sold out. I have tried looking for a half bib, and someone has offered me a 50K bib. Would you allow us to transfer the 50K bib to me, and then downgrade it to a half bib?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Sam – Bibs can be transferred to another runner by following these instructions:
      1. Sign In to RunSignUp
      2. Go to your Profile
      3. Click Manage Registration next to the registration that you would like to transfer to another person
      4. Click the Transfer To Another Runner menu item
      5. Fill out all required fields
      6. Select either Transfer as a Gift or Transfer for Refund

      The half marathon distance is sold out as well so you won’t be able to transfer to that distance officially, but you can run that distance and get a finisher award but you will get DNF as your official time for the 50k distance.

    • kristen says:

      Hey Sam , did you end up getting this bib? If not and its still available I would REALLY like to get the 50k bib! Please please please let me know :) thank you!

    • Jamie Kruger says:

      Sam, I’m hoping for a 55k bib for Antelope Canyon. Can I swap your 55k bib with my 50 mile bib?
      Thanks, Jamie

  • Robert Szmanda says:

    Hello to those already registered for the Antelope Canyon 50 mile ultra. My wife (Jill Bartlett) is registered, however I was a knucklehead and waited until it was sold out. I would like to purchase your bib if you are unable to use yours. Please email me if interested. In the meantime I will be training with hope!
    Thanks for the consideration.

  • Stephanie says:

    Hi. I read that you had to check in at aid all aid stations or risk being disqualified. Does that apply to the half marathon as well? Or just the longer distances?

  • Sheryl Hiemstra says:

    Just see now there is no wait list…so anyone out there with a 50 mile bib they are looking to transfer – please let me know! Thanks.

  • Geoff Sage says:

    Is there anyway to get a gpx or tcx file of the 50 mile course? Thank you!

  • Sarah says:

    Still looking for a half marathon bib, so I can join a friend running her first half. If anyone cannot use theirs, I’d be happy to purchase it from you at full price.

  • Marissa says:

    If anyone has a 55k bib they cannot use- I’m willing to pay for it, or trade it for my Zion Ultra 50k bib. Thank you!

  • April says:

    If i have a bib for Antelope 50 miler, can I switch the day of the race and start with the 55k instead?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi April – Because the 55k is sold out runners will not be able to transfer their registration to that distance.

  • Alex says:

    Hello, just a couple of quick questions about crew for the 100 miler… 1)Can my crew set up a pop-up/sleeping style tent at the Page Rim Aid station for my night portion? 2)Is there limited parking at Page Rim area for the 100 miler crews?

    Thank you in Advance!

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Alex – You can set a small tent up near the aid station for crew. There is no parking at the Page Rim aid station – you will park in the parking area about a quarter mile away and walk to the aid station. If needed, you can drop stuff off at the aid station and then park at the designated parking area.

  • Jamie Kruger says:

    I have a 50 mile bib and would like to transfer to 55k if anyone has one to swap or purchase. Thank you!!

  • Jayme says:

    Do I need to pre sign up for tour or can I at registration? Do u recommend touring upper or lower canyon if I’m running the 55k? What time are the tours, trying to plan the drive home?

  • Jonna says:

    How does the camping work? Do you provide tents?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Jonna – You can bring your own tent or you can register for a tent. During registration you will see this option.

      • Jonna says:

        I have already registered… but did not register for site as someone from our group got the site.
        1.) How many ppl to a tent if we rent from you?
        2.) how many tents per site?
        3.) Where exactly can we register to add a tent?
        Thank you!!

        • Kaelee Clifford says:

          Hi Jonna – You can have as many people stay with you as will fit in your tent – we rent out 4- and 6-person tents. Two small tents or one large one will fit at a campsite. You can add a tent and campsite by following these instructions:

    May have extra bib for half if any one interested.
    Question – can I pick up bibs for our group – what is pickup policy?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Kathy – You can pick up another runner’s bib as long as you have a copy of their ID, like a picture on a phone.

  • Lynn Sullivan says:

    How many miles of the 55k are sand?

  • Yumiko says:

    I got a tent with registration, but I would have to bring all my camping gear (from NY), right? I got a hotel (it says 7 min away from the Amphitheater) in town. I’m running the 50 mile which starts at 5:45. Is it easy enough to get from the hotel to the start? Or should I bring all my camping gear so I stay by the start line? What would be your recommendation?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Yumiko – It depends on if you will have a car. If you’re renting a car it might be easier to stay in a hotel than to bring all your camping gear. If you won’t have a car, staying at the campsite near the start line would be most convenient.

      • Yumiko says:

        Thank you Kaelee, I will have a car and I have my family who will be my cheering squad so they can drive me there. There will be parking so they can see me off, right? And how do I cancel my tent? (Or is that too late..?) thank you!

  • Marina Vitebskiy says:

    I’m currently signed up for the half but I don’t think I’ll be able to make it. If I defer my registration to next year, can you tell me what the date will be? I had a really hard time finding flights out there due to spring breaks prices:(

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Pam – We have to wait for our permits before we can secure the date, which usually happens a couple months after the current year’s race. We will announce the date on this website on our Facebook page, Ultra Adventures.

  • David Friedman says:

    There’s a 40% chance of rain forecasted for the Friday before the race. Does this impact the course esp through the slot canyon? Thanks & looking forward to it.

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi David – Rain shouldn’t affect the course – the forecast shows rain only on Friday so we don’t expect it to cause any issues. However, any changes made because of weather will be communicated to runners right way.

  • cas says:

    Hi, Is antelope canyon accessible to view during and after the races? I know you typically need a guide and pass but since we are involved in vacation races will this area be open?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Cas – Antelope Canyon is accessible by booking a tour, or if you are running the 100-miler or 50-miler. It is not accessible to the 55k or half marathon without booking a tour.

  • Wendy Crossman says:


    When will the photos taken during the race be available?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Wendy – There are not professional photos for this race. However, check out our Ultra Adventures Facebook page for runners’ photos.

  • Jessica Wilkens says:

    are there any official race photos from this event? I saw several professional looking photographers along the course but haven’t seen any info on them or if photos will be available.

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Jessica – There were professional photographers taking photos for promotional photos only. There are not individual runner photos for this event.

  • John Sicat says:

    Can somebody tell me when registration for 2020 opens up (Antelope 50 miler)? Thanks!

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

  • Lynn Sullivan says:

    Where can I check out the photos the photographers took on race day antelope canyon 2019?

  • Carol Bird says:

    If I bring a small camp trailer can I park at the race venue? I don’t need hookups or a campsite. Open desert is fine. Thanks.

  • Teresa says:

    Are there any pictures available to purchase from the 2019 55k?

  • jess says:

    My friends and I are interested in the 50m run next year but we’re all fairly new to trail running. How much of a portion can we walk and still be successful in finishing this race?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Jess – There is a 15-hour time limit for the 50-miler – that’s an 18-minute mile. So you can walk parts of the course but you will definitely need to do some running to finish in time.

  • Nathan Lyons says:

    Good morning! My wife and I are both looking at registering for this tomorrow. We have a volunteer code from last year’s Rocky Mtn Half (each of us volunteered at packet pickup). Since that race is not being held this year, is that code valid for this event? If not, is there a different code that could work, since we haven’t had a chance to use the code? Thank you so much for the great events you put on!

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Nathan – Absolutely! Volunteer codes can be used for any of our races. Be sure you register separately to be able to use both codes. And also – registration opens on Friday, not tomorrow :)

  • Jennifer Petranek says:

    My friend and I registered today, and tried to use code “ULTRA” to book at Lake Powell Resorts. It stated this code was not valid. Suggestions?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Jennifer – Sorry about that – that code is from 2019. We are working on getting a new code for the 2020 race.

  • Jennifer says:

    Is there a minimum age requirement for the Antelope half? I’ll be running the 50 miler and he wants to run too. He will be 11 then. Will there be enough signage on the course for him to do it alone?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Jennifer – There is not an age limit as long as the runner can finis in the cutoff time. If he will be running on his own he will need to be confident enough the get through the course. The course will be very well marked.

  • Nathan Lyons says:

    Are there opportunities for volunteering at Antelope Canyon ultras? Either Friday, or after the half on Saturday, before I complete the 50 miler?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Nathan – Yes, we always need volunteers, thank you! We will make the volunteer form available about a month before the event.

  • Michelle Garcia says:

    Where do I check for the discount code for lodging once it’s posted? I too tried to reserve room, but was told the 2019 code is still in effect. Thank you.

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Michelle – We are anxiously awaiting the discount code from the marina. We will post it as soon as we have it.

  • Angela kelly says:

    Is there another race I can volunteer at to get a free race entry? Or two races? I’m a poor Utah math teacher -post breast cancer-sympathy card

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Angela – You can volunteer at any of our races prior to Antelope – we have Great Smoky Mountains and Mount Rushmore coming up, but closer to home is the Lake Powell and Joshua Tree races. Then there’s Zion Half and Zion Ultra at the beginning of next year as well.

  • Kyla says:

    Is there any waitlist I could be placed on for the 55k? Thanks!

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Kyla – Unfortunately, there is not a waitlist for this event. Your best bet to get into the race is to try to buy a bib from another runner who cannot make it. We usually see runners post their bibs for sale once refunds are no longer available – December 16th. The best place to find someone selling their bib is on the Antelope Canyon Ultras event page on our Ultra Adventures Facebook page.

    Hello, what was the average temperature on the 2019 edition? I know Page might be very cold.

  • Brent says:

    For the 50 mile must you beat the “minimum pace time” for every aid station and the 2 grim reaper times in order to not receive a DNF, or must you just beat the 2 grim reaper times and finish within 15 hours in order to finish with an official time?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Brent – Runners must beat the grim reaper times to not be pulled from the course. Those are hard cutoffs. You will be allowed to go on if you are behind the minimum pace times but it will be unlikely that you will finish in the overall time cutoff. If you finish after the overall time cutoff you will receive a DNF for your time; however, you will be allowed to go on as long as you beat the grim reaper times.

  • Sarah says:

    What would you rate the difficulty level of the half marathon? This would be my first trail half.

  • Sheri says:

    How many ladders do we use during the 55K? Are they all easily accessible? As in you don’t have to jump up and grab the ladder and pull yourself up the ladder, do you?


    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Sheri – There aren’t any ladders in the 55k course but there are permanent steps. It’s not too tricky and very accessible.

  • Deanne says:

    Are trekking poles allowed? Recommended?

  • aaron says:

    how long will a deferral be good for, 1 year or multiple?

    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Aaron – A deferral is good for a year. You only need to use your deferment code in the year, not necessarily run the race in that year.

  • Veronica says:

    Hi is the trifecta available for this race?

  • Jamie says:

    How many miles of the half marathon are on sand? And is the sand loose or a packed trail? This is my first trail one and I want to be prepared.

  • Simon says:

    Hi, just a quick question about pacers for the 100 miler… It says pacers can join at the 2nd Horseshoe bend A/S. I guess this isn’t the only place they can join as there is still roughly 70 miles left! Can pacers join on however many laps around the Page Rim Trail they wish?

    Also, during the early parts of the race are the pacers allowed to walk around the slot canyon and horseshoe bend areas as tourists (not helping me in the race) but to just look around the sites and take pictures etc… as we would be travelling a long way for the weekend so they want to make the most of limited time.


    • Kaelee Clifford says:

      Hi Simon – Sorry for the confusion – pacers can join their runner at the Horseshoe Bend aid station and at any point after. The slot canyons and Navajo side of Horseshoe Bend will not be accessible to pacers during the race, unfortunately.
