Grand Canyon Centennial Race

212 Participants

The Granddaddy of the them all is turning 100 and you're invited to party with us. Over 6 million people visit this remote Northern Arizona park that is over 1 mile deep and up to 18 miles wide. The canyon is also 277 "river miles" long. If you haven't seen it for yourself, trust us... this thing is BIG!

Founded February 26, 1919, The Grand Canyon has been a staple in American lore. When many think of the American West, images of the canyon come to mind with its massive messas, cliffs, views and variety of weather & animals. Campers, hikers, rafters, bird-watchers and many more enjoy all that this incredible park has to offer. You can enjoy being a part of this historic event even if you can't make it to the park in person this year with this fun race.

You can run, walk or hike this race and do it wherever you want! Sign up now. (Note, the "Rim-To-Rim" distance is a little bit flexible depending on what way someone would go, but we're considering it the 24 mile route most people take.)

Shirt/Bib/Sticker Info & Deadlines

  • Register by February 3 & your shirt/bib/sticker will arrive by February 25
  • Register after February 3 and your swag will not ship until Late-March

We will place two shirt orders for this event — one before and one after. Everyone that registers for a shirt, bib and/or sticker will get it - regardless of whether you finish your race. ALL SHIRTS HAVE THE SAME IMPRINT.

*Note: registrations are a la carte, so you get to choose what swag you want

Finisher Medal Info & Deadlines

Only those that register for a medal will get one, AND only if they report a finish time. Medals will start to ship shortly after the event, but only to those that report their time. The last day to report your finish time is March 25, 2019.

Add On Options

 

We are also providing our usual customized printed bibs & stickers for this event. One or both of these can be added once you make your registration option selection. Stickers are about 3.5".

Important Info

The official race day is as listed above. Registration will be open through that day as supplies last.

To maintain the spirit of traditional events, we believe a finisher reward should be earned by finishing the race. We verify that you finished by requiring that you report your time to your account. If you do not report, YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE A REWARD.

As far as we’re concerned, race day is as listed above and we anticipate that most people will race that day - BUT - the advantage of having a virtual race is you can do it when and where works best for you. So it’s up to you. Because we strive to honor the tradition of in-person races, you’ll receive messages as if that is race day for you, but just know that we’re okay with it if you need to do something different.

A portion of each registration will be donated to the National Park Foundation specifically for The Grand Canyon.


Boring Yet Important Notes: 1) All swag usually ships separately and all timelines are based on US Domestic shipping via the USPS. 2) In rare cases where the shirt style/color we list is out of stock, the next closest color will automatically be substituted for you. 3) If you intend on registering more than one person for this race, please add them to your account BEFORE you register yourself. You can do that in "Profile" once you're logged in. Watch this video to see how this is done. 4) For our US Territory friends, on your address, please list your two-letter country code in "State" and then "United States" in the country field. (AS, GU, MP, FM, PR, VI, MH).
