6 Hour Nighttime Fun Run, 12 Hour, Team Relay and Solo Challenge
Run for twenty four hours under the sun and stars in this stunning backdrop.
Each 24-hour event is all-day and all-night. Runners compete to run as many laps as possible in a 24 hour time frame. For racers, this will be one of the most memorable events of your life. For spectators and crew, it will be a 24-hour festival where you will witness athletes pushing themselves beyond their personal limits of endurance.
Experience the beautiful desert landscape of Moab, Utah while testing your own personal limits. From the immense canyons with 1000 foot walls to the beautiful La Sal mountains, the town of Moab lies in the midst of it all. Photographers and artists flock to this area for it’s natural beauty while endurance athletes are drawn to the relatively easy access to the remote locations. With an average high of 68 F and an average low of 38 F this is a truly amazing location for a 24 hour race.

Pre Race procedures
Each racer must check in at the Base Camp no later than 20 minutes prior to the start of the race unless management is notified beforehand. Team Captains are allowed to check-in for the entire team but are responsible to inform team members of course/procedure details. Teams will receive their batons at check-in.
Solo racers will not have to carry a baton.
Pacers are allowed for solo runners only. All pacers must register at the registration table in order to receive aid station privileges.
Each team must have a representative captain. The captain is responsible for all the teams actions and will be held responsible for any rule infractions and all communications with race officials.
Although everyone is welcome, the team captain must attend the pre-race meeting.
Racers must log-in on each lap at the Base Camp located at the Start/Finish area. The team baton must be passed from one racer to the other within site of the timing official. There will be a running clock, therefore the lap splits will run from lap-end time to lap-end time.
It is the team’s responsibility to verify that each racer is logged-out correctly. Each racer must clearly state your number and wait until the race official acknowledges that your time and number are recorded correctly.
Each team member must complete at least one lap. 10-Person Class-the 10-Person class must have at least one female and at least one male.
Challenge-teams must have at least one team member who is an employee of the team they are representing.
Water and food may be supplied to any racer, by anyone, anywhere on the course. However, racers must stay well clear of the course when taking food or water. A strict Leave No Trace policy will be implemented. Water will be available part way through the course.
Racers must display their race numbers at all times.
Federal, state and county laws and ordinances must be followed at all times.
Staying on course
While running a lap, racers must stay on the designated course. Any racer that goes off the designated course (i.e. shortcutting) will result in a disqualification of that racer’s team.
Official protests can only be made by team captains and must be made directly to the Race Director.
The race director has the final say in any ruling, including rulings made by the co-director.
Quiet hours at night, will be imposed from 11:00 p.m. Saturday until 6:00 a.m. Sunday. During this time, noise must be kept to a minimum but the fun will continue.
Racers entering the course two hours before sunset on Saturday and up to one-half hour before sunrise on Sunday must carry a light source and it must be in good working order. Racing with lights out is permitted but all runners must have some sort of lighting affixed to the outside of their clothing while light is off (i.e. glow stick). The course will be marked with reflective tape. We suggest using a headlamp or a handheld light that can be raised to eye level for night time navigation.
A team racer may run consecutive laps, but must log-out at Base Camp after his/her first lap in order to log-in for his/her second lap. If the racer does not do this, only one lap will be counted. Solo racers will do this every lap.
If a baton is lost during a lap, teams may be issued a new baton but will have to start a new lap at the Base Camp. Any distance run on the started lap previous to the loss of the baton will be void.
Changing a runner after check-in
Teams have the option to cancel a partial lap once it has started. Racers must notify the Base Camp that a new runner is beginning and must log-in and start at the Base Camp. The canceled lap does not count as a completed lap.
Substituting a team member
To substitute a runner, the new runner must fill out all appropriate paperwork. All late fees will apply. Substitutions/changes are eligible until two hours before the finish on Sunday.
Racers must complete his/her lap by the finish time on Sunday. No partial laps will be counted. Each team’s final placing will be determined by the number of laps the team has completed and the order of finish times for the team’s last lap. For example, a team that has completed 20 laps with a finish time of 8:20 a.m. would beat a team that completed 20 laps, with a finish time of 8:30 a.m. A team that completed 21 laps, with a finish time of 9:00 a.m., would beat them both. The awards ceremony will begin approximately 20 minutes after the cut-off.
All categories will receive 1st through 3rd place awards and age group awards will be given for 24 Hour Solo and 12 Hours Solo racers in each of the following categories:
Solo 24 Hours racers will not be entered into the 100 mile standings.
In the case of unforeseeable circumstances due to weather or other extenuating circumstances that prevents the safe continuation the race, race officials may end the race at any given time. Results will be based on team’s placement at the time race officials determine. This rule will be implemented in the most extreme cases for the safety of runners or officials.
This year’s race will be run on the beautiful Monitor and Merrimac trail 16 miles north of Moab. Racers will run 5.37 mile laps with approximately 606′ of climbing per loop. A rolling course, each lap starts at 4524’, reaches a high point of 4982’ and a low point of 4490’. Hot food will be available during the cool night and there will be an unmanned water station approximately halfway through the loop to help runners enjoy the rugged trails and view the beautiful canyons below.
