The Grand to Grand Ultra is considered to be one of the world’s most iconic multi-stage ultra-marathons, which attracts competitors from all over the globe. The course is a total distance of approx 273km (170 miles) spread over 6 stages in 7 days and is entirely self-supported. It was the unique opportunity to hold a world-class event that would stretch from the Grand Canyon, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, to the relatively unknown but equally geologically iconic Grand Staircase, that settled the location of North America’s premier self-supported stage race. The Grand to Grand Ultra is now firmly established on the global race circuit for self-supported multi-stage ultra-marathons.


The course takes competitors through some of the most remote parts of continental America, made up of an unforgiving and surreal desert landscape of sand dunes, red rock canyons, buttes, mesas and hoodoos. Racers are required to navigate numerous slot canyons and cross the inaccessible high desert of the Colorado Plateau, in the way of the earliest settlers, Navajo and Paiute Indian tribes.
