Zion Centennial Race

Zion is AMAZING! And we're not just saying that because it's our "home park" (VRC is based just a few miles away). As one of the most visited National Parks, Zion has something for just about everyone. Whether it's the renown Narrows, dizzying Angels Landing, remote backcountry, arches, sightseeing, wildlife, sunsets, etc. etc., this place is worth celebrating. (It even has it's own "Subway".)

Originally formed as Mukuntuweap National Monument in 1909, Zion became a full-fledged National Park November 19, 1919. Congress approved the declaration "for the benefit and enjoyment of the people." It was another 37 years that the Kolob section was incorporated into the park that we know today.

Join us as we celebrate 100 years of this special National Park. There are a handful of swag options that are a la carte, so you can get just the swag you want. 

This is a virtual race so you can run, walk or hike this race and do it wherever you want! Sign up now. 5K/10K/Half Marathon

How this works

A virtual race is just like a traditional race but you can choose where you run! We'll mail your swag to you and then once you finish, we'll send your medal. All items are a la carte, so you can register for just the swag you care about.

When is the Race?

Race day is November 19-24, 2019 (Although you have the flexibility to do it when works best for you.)

Shirt/Bib/Sticker Info & Deadlines


  • Register by October 30, 2019 and your shirt, bib, and/or sticker will arrive around November 18.
  • Register after October 30 and your shirt, bib, and/or sticker will not ship until mid-December.

Everyone that registers for a shirt, bib, and/or sticker will get it - regardless of whether you finish your race. However those that register for a medal will NOT get it until after they report their time & the race is over. All shirts have the same imprints.

*Note: registrations are a la carte, so you get to choose what swag you want

Finisher Medal Info & Deadlines

This metal medal is 6" tip to tip and follows the actual outline of the park. It also has an artistic representation of the geography & topography of Zion. The back features an homage to the iconic entrance sign of the park. Register now to ensure you get yours before we sell out!

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 December 18, 2019.

Important Info

The official race day is as listed above. To maintain the spirit of traditional events, we believe a finisher medal 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 MEDAL.

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 given to the National Park Foundation. You can increase your impact by donating even more on their site.

Please Note: 1) All swag usually ships separately and all timelines are based on US Domestic shipping via the USPS. 2) In rare cases where the shirt style/color we list is out of stock, the next closest color will automatically be substituted for you.
