On Saturday, November 2, 2019, the Grand Canyon Trail Half Marathon takes place in beautiful Kaibab National Forest (just south of the South Rim of the Grand Canyon). You can walk or run a half-marathon, a 5K, or the family mile; after you must visit our greatest attraction, the Grand Canyon.
The 13.1-mile trail loops through the beautiful forest and high desert of the Kaibab National Forest. It doesn’t go into the Canyon, but all race participants (or anyone for that matter) can purchase a Park pass and easily enter into Park from the race site.
The Half-Marathon has been named the Road Runners Club of America Arizona State Half-Marathon Championship, with awards to top finishers. Souvenir race coaster-medallion, beautiful long-sleeve shirt, race goodies, and more are yours to commemorate your iconic journey through the trails near the South Rim.
Skip the crowds up at the Canyon and stay with us at El Portal Sedona Hotel. Sedona is less than two hours from the park, and much less congested. The boutique hotel is a AAA Four Diamond Hotel, is pet-friendly, and offers unparalleled concierge services for the Sedona area. Take a break from the ordinary, relax after the race, and take in the majestic scenery of Sedona. Reserve your room today 1.800.313.0017
