Únete a Thelma & Louise Half Marathon
Home to many of the American Southwest’s most iconic places, from the awe-inspiring rock formations of Arches National Park to the mesas, mountains and rivers that carve ribbon-like canyons through the dry rock of Canyonlands National Park, Moab is often thought of as the nation’s outdoor paradise, a mecca for mountain bikers, trail runners and adventure sports enthusiasts of all stripes.
Combine all of that scenery with memories of the classic 1991 movie starring Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon and you get the Thelma & Louise Half Marathon and Relay, a race organized by the race management company that stages the Moab Other Half Marathon and Canyonlands Half Marathon each year.
The Thelma & Louise Half is an out-and-back running along side the Colorado River on Highway 279 (Potash Road). The race will Start and Finish at the Gold Bar Campground. This campground has direct access to the river, so remember to bring your lifejackets and swim suits!
Designed especially for women runners of all ages, the race will also benefit a pair of charitable organizations that support women and girls — Girls on the Run and the Seekhaven Family Crisis Center, a shelter for victims of domestic violence in southeastern Utah.
Destacable en la ruta
Runners are set to start the race at 6:30 AM Mountain Time at the Gold Bar Campground just outside Moab, along Highway 279. From there, the course follows 279 all the way west and south between Arches and Canyonlands National Parks, toward Dead Horse State Park.
The race parallels the Colorado River the entire way, and when runners reach the bend in the river at the half-way point, they make the turn and head back toward Gold Bar Campground for the race finish.
