Because a girls weekend should include an exciting challenge, we present Thelma and Louise Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K, and Marathon Relay.  This year's change of location means an extension of race cutoffs! We've made this event more accessible to all types of runners.

Bring your best girl friends to Moab, and experience remoteness of Moab's Behind the Rocks area. See the towering red rock walls of Lone Rock, believed to have been used for religious ceremonies by the Ancestral Pueblo people; their ceremonies worshiped their "mother deity." Catch views of the maze of fins in the Behind the Rocks Wilderness Area and the stunning La Sal Mountains at this women's only event.  Originally a road half marathon and relay, we have designed a new challenging course, rugged and tough enough to be worthy of the name "Thelma and Louise." When Thelma and Louise took a stand, they took a turn onto the dirt. The tires are screeching, the car is turning...are you ready to face the music?

Be sure to watch the movie before you arrive, since the raffle prizes require a correct answer to our Thelma and Louise movie trivia questions!

Schedule:

Marathon- 6 AM
Half Marathon- 6 AM
10K- 6 AM
Marathon Relay- 6 AM

Course Information:

This women's only trail race is located at Behind the Rocks Trail; a remote area in the Moab desert! The course will be a mix of dirt road, slickrock, and some sandy washes.
