Moab’s Red Hot Ultra

About Moab’s Red Hot

The Red Hot is located northwest of Moab, Utah just west of Arches National Park. Red Hot runners will have majestic views of the La Sal Mountains to the southeast and breathtaking views of Canyonlands National Park to the west. The course is a combination of jeep trail and singletrack that will quickly become one of your favorite winter challenges.

New in 2023, a 50 Mile distance! A course worthy of adding to the Triple Crown of Moab, runners will be treated to some amazing views and stunning rim trails. This one may be one of the very best Moab trail race courses, and we can’t wait to show it off!

Moab’s Red Hot is part of our Run Moab Series.
