Update on Grand Canyon Trail Half Marathon & 5K

We’re moving forward with an in-person Grand Canyon Trail Half Marathon and 5k Run/Walk on Saturday, November 7th.  
The first 250 registrants in either the 5k or the half-marathon will receive these goodies:
  • Grand Canyon running buff
  • Colorful long sleeve shirt
  • Souvenir race coster medal
  • Souvenir race bib
We’ve been given permission from all required agencies and entities to produce a staggered-start, socially-distant race, with a largely self-supported route and limited pre- and post-race activities.
In consultation with the Town of Tusayan, the Tusayan Chamber of Commerce, the Tusayan Fire Department, and the Kaibab National Forest, we think this is a safe option for runners and walkers who want to visit Northern Arizona.
The 13.1 mile trail loops through the beautiful forest and high desert of the Kaibab National Forest and is a great location for a socially distanced event.
The race registration site has details on safety protocols and more information will be available shortly.
Any registrant who wishes to do the event as a Virtual Event will receive their race goodies mailed directly to them.
