Like Volunteering?

We love volunteers :)

Please email us if you'd like to help out on race day:

This race is a "point to point" and requires a shuttle from the Finish line area (where you will park) to the Start line area. Shuttle passes are available for an additional fee of $10.00. You may be dropped off at the start, if you do not want to take the shuttle. However, your driver will not be allowed to park here.

Sedona is a "must see" destination place, so hotel prices tend to be higher. An alternative location, Cottonwood, offers lower priced lodging and is about 45 minutes away from race start . We suggest the Best Western or Verde Valley Inn.

​Rather Camp?

Here is where we suggest:

Dead Horse Ranch
(tent, RV or cabins)


Chavez Crossing Campground
(Group campground)


Rancho Sedona RV Park
(no tent camping)
