The Grand to Grand Ultra is a unique event the first and only self supported stage footrace in North America.

However its uniqueness does not stop there. It is the first stage race to start from the awe inspiring north rim of the Grand Canyon, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, and finish on the summit of the Grand Staircase, one of the world's most iconic geological formations. The course takes you through a desert landscape of sand dunes, red rock canyons, buttes, mesas and hoodoos. You will navigate compelling slot canyons and cross a tributary of the Virgin River. Experience the remotest part of continental America in the way of the earliest settlers, Navajo and Paiute Indian tribes. This is where Montezuma's gold is still reputed to be buried.

Observe nature up close in an environment rich in flora and wildlife from unusual and threatened cacti to big horn sheep to the endangered California Condor, the largest bird in America.

Challenge yourself in the company of an international group of participants who are all eager to complete a world class course, never before attempted.
And party in luxury in Las Vegas after you emerge from the desert! This will be one awards ceremony you will not want to miss!
Nationality Quotas - Only 10 persons per country are allowed, so enter quickly before your quota is filled up.
