Beitreten Monument Valley Ultra

The Monument Valley Ultra is now a part of the Navajo Parks Race Series under the auspices of Navajo Parks & Recreation and the nonprofit NavajoYES.

Situated within the Navajo Nation, Monument Valley boasts amazing formations that reach over 1,000 feet into the sky and draw your gaze in wonderment. You will likely recognize these formations or “monuments” from the hundreds of movies that have been filmed in this desert backdrop over the years. Vibrant colors and dramatic shadows cast along the valley floor will give you a sense of becoming “in tune” with nature, experiencing the same inclusion with the natural world that the Native Americans have practiced for generations. Running becomes less of an activity and more of an intrinsic way in which to absorb the landscape.

Join us at Ultra Adventures to share the experience in this beautiful setting as we wander and wind our way around the majestic towers and entwine Navajo culture into our event, which will leave you with a new understanding and respect for the natural environment and appreciation for the Navajo lifestyle.

Strecken Highlights

50 Mile- This route starts off by heading into the North Valley an area where few tourists are able to see without a Navajo guide, then over to the 3 Sisters Aid Station, where it links into the 50K route. You'll do the North Window and Arches loops before heading up onto Mitchell Mesa, then back to the finish line.

50K- The route starts on the Valley Drive road where you will witness a sunrise that will be permanently etched in your memory. After about 3.7 miles you’ll arrive at the 3 Sisters aid station for the first time, located at the parking area of the Dineh Trailrides horse corrals. The next leg of the course will have you following horse trails around the towering formations of Monument Valley before looping back to the aid station again at approximately mile 8. From here you’ll head out on a 9.5 mile journey through the desert which will take you by several remote, seldom-seen, jaw dropping formations in areas of the park that are only accessible with Navajo guides. Our group Navajo guides will be covering the trails by horseback to help ensure that you remain on the appropriate path. After returning to the 3 Sisters Aid station for the 3rd time you can regroup before embarking on the daunting 1,500ft climb up onto Mitchell Mesa, an area seldom seen since it was mined for uranium. The turnaround at the top of the mesa will offer life changing views that you have earned by pushing through the crux of the course. After returning to the aid station at the horse corrals, 50k runners will take the Valley Drive back to the starting line.

Half Marathon- This run starts out along the Wildcat trail single track around the backside of the West Mitten following roads to the 3 Sisters Aid Station. Runners will do a 4.5 mile loop following horse trails between the landforms of Monument Valley after a second pass through 3 Sisters Aid Station runners follow Valley Drive back to the finish line.
