Grand Canyon 100th


The Granddaddy of the them all is 100 and you're invited to party with us. Over 6 million people visit this remote Northern Arizona park that is over 1 mile deep and up to 18 miles wide. The canyon is also 277 "river miles" long. If you haven't seen it for yourself, trust us... this thing is BIG!

Founded in 1919, Grand Canyon National Park has been a staple in American lore. When many think of the American West, images of the canyon come to mind with its massive messas, cliffs, views and variety of weather & animals. Campers, hikers, rafters, bird-watchers and many more enjoy all that this incredible park has to offer. You can enjoy being a part of this historic event even if you can't make it to the park in person this year with this fun race.

You can run, walk or hike this race and do it wherever you want! Sign up now. (Note, the "Rim-To-Rim" distance is a little bit flexible depending on what way someone would go, but we're considering it the 24 mile route most people take.)

How this works

A virtual race is just like a traditional race but you can choose where you run! Once you finish your race, we'll send your medal. All items are a la carte, so you can register for just the swag you want.

Finisher Medal Info & Deadlines

Only those that register for a medal will get one, AND only if they report a finish time. Medals will start to ship shortly after the event, but only to those that report their time. The last day to report your finish time is September 30, 2019.

Keepsake Printed Bib


We are also providing our usual customized printed bibs that can be added once you make your registration option selection. You can choose whatever number you'd like on your bib.

Important Info

The official race day is as listed above. Registration will be open through that day as supplies last.

To maintain the spirit of traditional events, we believe a finisher reward should be earned by finishing the race. We verify that you finished by requiring that you report your time to your account. If you do not report, YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE A REWARD.

As far as we’re concerned, race day is as listed above and we anticipate that most people will race then - BUT - the advantage of having a virtual race is you can do it when and where works best for you. So it’s up to you. Because we strive to honor the tradition of in-person races, you’ll receive messages as if that is race day for you, but just know that we’re okay with it if you need to do something different.

A portion of each registration will be donated to the National Park Foundation specifically for The Grand Canyon.

Note: Due to popular demand, we have re-launched this race as a medal only racing event. Shirts are not available as part of the race registration, but can be purchased from our partner AXOMO. Click here to order your own.
