238+ mile footrace through desert, canyons, slick rock, two mountain ranges surrounded
by Canyonlands and Arches National Parks
There are no race qualifications this year for the Moab 200, we only require that each participant fulfill an 8 hour trail work requirement.
Even though there are no race requirements, please note that this is a GRADUATE level race. This is a non-stop multi day event and as such it is very physically and mentally demanding. Runners often experience hallucinations and sleep deprivation. Extreme weather in the canyons (heat) and in the mountains (cold, snow, high winds) is normal. In a few cases, participants must go over 20 miles between full aid stations and carry important recommended gear and water. Much of the terrain is rugged and remote. Participants will need to know how to navigate and read a map for safety reasons. The course will be marked with reflective ribbons and arrow signs and confidence markings the entire way. Although we mark the trails, runners may encounter sections with little to no markings due to natural causes, tampering, or differences in course marking styles. Please note that there are very exposed sections, dangerous cliffs, rock fall, snakes, spiders, scorpions, wildlife, and other hazards throughout the route.
