Difficulty ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 against all of the events within their own series. Runners should keep in mind the specific distance chosen to run (such as our ultras events) when comparing to other events. For example- the 55K distance at the Antelope Canyon Ultras is significantly more difficult than the Yellowstone Half marathon even though they both have a "Moderate" label.

This one is for all you early planners! We know that planning vacations around races takes time and is much easier to do in advance. We want to make that planning as easy as possible so we're going to give you expected dates a year and a half in advance.


While we do intend to hold the events on the listed dates, please understand they are tentative until we indicate that they've been confirmed (final dates and race details will be confirmed throughout the year). We hope this new process will help you get a head start on planning your race vacations!
