Moab Trail Running Getaway
October 11-14, 2020
Treat yourself to a getaway that has it all in a world-class adventure town. This is a non-competitive trip that is designed to showcase the full spectrum of beauty the iconic Moab area has to offer. Featuring world-class desert trails and the changing colors of the La Sal National Forest, this trip is designed for the runner who wants a backcountry adventure and also enjoys air conditioning and clean sheets at the end of the day.
Following a daily meet and greet at your lodging in downtown Moab, UT, runners will spend the days on stunning desert trails and mesas along the Colorado River. Work your way through the best trails around Moab and the La Sal Mountains with their magnificent views of the valley. End your days at the best local restaurants and then retire to a comfortable bed. As all of our Adventure Getaways operate, an on-trail guide will assist with navigation and wilderness emergency care. This trip has a maximum capacity of 20 runners and will include 1-2 fun sessions of trail running a day totaling between 8-12 miles. And there’s always more available for those who want additional exploring!

You will encounter a wide variety of terrain (sand, rocky desert, stony ground etc).
After a meet and greet at the host hotel, your guides will take you to the trailhead where you will start off in style with one of the most beautiful sections of the entire tour. The stunning views of Fisher Towers make this section a great way to begin your adventure. After this introductory run we will head back into town for dinner at a local restaurant followed by a relaxing evening in town.
After a breakfast with hot coffee, you will discover true Moab slickrock in the brisk morning air. A tasty lunch will help you attack some of the most famous running and mountain biking trails in the world. This is a challenging day with huge rewards.
Breathtaking canyons are what Moab is all about. Your guides will support you as you wind through the most remote sections of Kane Creek Canyon. Both the views of the cliff walls above and the canyon views below will leave you breathless.
Onion Creek is one of the most fun runs in the Moab area. The creek cuts through a winding canyon and offers impressive views of some of the most amazing spires and hoodoos in the area. Ending with a swim in the Colorado River will cap off the getaway of a lifetime.
**We do our very best to stick to this planned schedule. However, the itinerary is subject to change for numerous reasons beyond our control, including weather and terrain conditions.
