Company Description

Vacation Races was founded in 2012 by Salem Stanley on the idea that runners deserve more from a race, they want a complete experience. Going to a race is an opportunity to break out of your routine, discover a new place, meet other runners, and push your personal limits. You shouldn't have to deal with crowded cities, congested traffic, smog, and cup-covered race courses. Our National Parks provide a breathtaking backdrop for the most scenic races in the world. Spend the morning running among friends and absorbing natures beauty, then spend a few hours (or days) hiking, exploring, and enjoying the serenity of the National Parks. Either way, you'll set a personal record for the best vacation ever!
