The Arches Marathon and Half event is located at Behind the Rocks trail. We’re taking you to explore Moab’s last hidden gem. The course is made up of jeep road, slickrock, and sandy washes;
Moab running at its best!
Started in 2004 as a fall companion to the popular Canyonlands Half Marathon, Arches Half Marathon has hosted many runners on the road course. In 2021, Arches became a trail event. The new course features beautiful red rock formations, views of the snow covered La Sal Mountains and the awe inspiring Behind the Rocks Wilderness Study Area. We have added a marathon division and we extended cutoffs. In 2022, Arches Marathon and Half will host a 50K. See more of the Moab desert and finish an ultra!
