What better backdrop is there for a gravel bike course than Zion National Park? Join us as we zip, swerve, and coast through this exciting bike course in beautiful Southern Utah this October. The Zion area is always extra special to us because it’s our backyard and it’s where Vacation Races started. This year, we celebrate our 10th year as a company and we are honored that you are part of that celebration!
As you plan your race weekend activities, we want to send you off to Zion with the Race Guide. It covers everything you need to know for race weekend: from bib pick-up, to race-day parking, to hikes and rides you can complete afterward. You can read the Race Guide for a comprehensive overview of what you need to know for race weekend.
When you read the Race Guide, please pay special attention to the following pages:
- Page 2 - Full event schedule
- Pages 2-3 - Parking & event check-in
- Pages 4-5 - 13 mile course details
- Pages 6-7 - 30 mile course details
- Pages 8-9 - 55 mile course details
Toward the end of the guide, we share how you can participate in the Explorer Club to get suggestions on what to see and do while you're in the area. When you complete the Explorer Club challenge you earn a special badge (in addition to your race medal) for completing it! Learn more here.
On race day, you may notice some people with different markings on their bib. If you look at the special indication area of the bib, you may see our Wander Project logo (a small teal circle in the top right corner), they are running as part of our Charity Bib Program.
Charity Bib athletes fundraise for their race registration. They have the option of fundraising for one of our official partners, or they can fundraise for a cause of their choice. It's a great way to add a little extra "oomph" to your running journey and it helps a wide variety of deserving causes.
