Vacation Races Mission, Vision, and Principles
Our mission is to challenge perceived limitations and showcase human potential by creating a community of belonging through innovative, thoughtfully planned, and sustainable endurance events in sought-after destinations.
To be the global leader of endurance event production, centered around sought-after destinations worldwide.
Community, integrity, grit, gratitude, and innovation.
Founded in 2012, and providing the only national park races at the time, Vacation Races’ foray into racing events focused on three different, regional parks – Zion, Rocky Mountain and Lake Powell. Over the years we have expanded to provide nation-wide and international running opportunities from elite ultra marathon events to our all-inclusive trail-running Global Adventures.
We are motivated each day by our mission to promote health and an inclusive running community where all can participate in outdoors events against the backdrop of our country's, and our world's, majestic National Parks and public lands.
We invite you to run, walk, jog, or roll with us to your next big finish line!
