LODGING/CAMPING

4M, 12M, 21M, 34M and 50M distances

Sedona, Arizona

Interested in volunteering? We'd love to hear from you :)

Please email us at: erica@trailrunningescapes.com

Prices are listed on our registration page. Simply click the "Register" tab above. Prices do NOT include Arizona sales tax nor Ultrasignup fees.

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 25-45 minutes away from each day's race start respectively. We suggest the Best Western.

​Rather Camp?

Here is where we suggest:

Dead Horse Ranch

(tent, RV or cabins)

​or

Rancho Sedona RV Park

(no tent camping)

​Traveling in your Adventure van or RV?

Sedona offers several locations for free dispersed camping. Check out: 
Loy Butte Road/Forest Road 525 (closest) or North Bill Gray Road. Both accessible off 89A.

AirBnB is also a great option for friends sharing accommodations or a family who may need more space. Book early, because Springtime is high season here!
