Project Athena: Moab Trail Marathon, Half Marathon, & 5K Run/Walk

Join us at Sorrel River Ranch Resort & Spa for this year’s Project Athena Moab Trail Marathon, Half Marathon and 5K Run/Walk. This event will take place on November 3 at the Kane Creek Canyon Area in Moab, Utah. Sorrel River Ranch welcomes runners to our luxurious resort in Moab for a comfortable stay in one of our guest rooms or suites.

This is a fantastic event that the whole family can attend. The Marathon and Half Marathon will begin at 9:00am with the first wave of runners. Each subsequent wave will start 5 minutes after the wave before them. Faster runners begin first. The 5K follows a similar format beginning at 9:30am with the first wave, and remaining waves starting 5 minutes after the wave before them. This year the event will also have a Kids Dash which begins at 9:15am.

You can register online for this event, or you can call for a mail in registration. Registering for this event will include access to the new fully marked course, Chip timing, Merrell Tech T-shirt, Aid stations along the route with water, race after party with soup and snacks and more. There will also be some great prizes handed out. Finishers will receive a “Finisher’s Mug,” the top 3 men and women will receive a pair of Merrell Shoes, race trophies, and a chance at cash prizes for the top finishers. This year’s Moab Trail Marathon is the “Trail Marathon National Championship” so the overall and age group winners will be named National Champions.

You should run this race not only for the great cause of the Athena Project, but also because this is a fantastic opportunity to run one of the most beautiful courses in the country. Run over slickrock, through arches, and down mining trails as you see the gorgeous Moab landscape pass by. Moab is absolutely breathtaking this time of year and the town is buzzing about this great event.

The Sorrel River Ranch Resort & Spa would like to welcome runners to stay with us at our luxurious Moab resort. After the race, come back and enjoy the exceptionally comfortable accommodations and the luxury amenities of our guest rooms and suites. Taste the delicious dishes at our River Grill restaurant. Hang out with other racers in our outstanding outdoor areas or if you still have energy, ask the Guest Experience Team to set you up on a Moab adventure.
