About The Thelma and Louise Marathon
The Thelma and Louise Marathon in Moab, Utah is a one-of-a-kind half marathon race that takes place each year on 13 May. With its stunning red rocks, majestic canyons, and breathtaking views of the Colorado River, it’s no wonder runners from all over the world come to experience this unforgettable run.
The half marathon route starts out with a flat stretch along the riverfront. As you make your way upriver you will pass by numerous sandstone arches and other natural formations as well as several small towns and settlements along the way. You will also get to see some of Moab’s most iconic landmarks like Arches National Park, Fisher Towers, Dead Horse Point State Park, and La Sal Mountains – all within sight of one another!
As for weather conditions on race day: expect temperatures in mid 50’s with partly cloudy skies throughout the day – perfect running conditions! And since it falls during late springtime there will likely be plenty of wildflowers blooming which offer an added bonus to any runner who needs a little extra motivation while they are running.
The atmosphere at Thelma and Louise Half Marathon is nothing short of electric! There are usually several hundred runners from around the globe participating in this event so it always has a festive vibe about it – especially when everyone lines up for the start line together under those beautiful blue skies. But don’t worry if crowds aren’t your thing; there are plenty of quiet stretches where you can find some peace & solitude away from all the hubbub too! Plus there’s lots of support staff (like medical personnel) available just in case something happens while you’re out there on course.
So if you’re looking for an awesome half marathon adventure this coming May then look no further than Thelma & Louise Half Marathon in Moab Utah – guaranteed to provide memories that last long after crossing that finish line!
