The 3rd Annual Grand Canyon Trail Half Marathon and 5k will be held on Saturday November 6th. The event takes place in the beautiful Kaibab National Forest, just south of the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. Walk or run a half-marathon, 5k, or the family mile -- then visit the America's greatest attraction, the Grand Canyon.
The 13.1 mile trail loops through the beautiful forest and high desert of the Kaibab National Forest, while the 5k is an out-and-back, partially on a paved multi-use path through the forest and partially on a forest service road. The courses do not descend into the Grand Canyon, but all race participants can purchase a National Park Service pass and, from the race site, easily enter into the Grand Canyon National Park.
All participants will receive a host of colorful souvenirs:
high quality long-sleeve race shirt
commemorative coaster medallion
stylish souvenir race number
