Rose Canyon Ultra

The Rose Canyon Ultra uses the best trails in the Rose, Butterfield, and Yellow Fork Canyon areas. This rugged and beautiful area will leave you wanting to come back over and over.

You will take in amazing scenery from densely wooded areas to stunning ridges offering impressive vistas of the surrounding mountains. This is a rugged yet incredibly beautiful trail race ranging from perfectly smooth single track trails to steep rocky climbs and that will push you to your limits.

At the end of it all we believe you will love this race and all of its diversity. Our only regret is we can't be out there running it with you. Be sure to check out the photos as well as the course map link below for more details on this beautiful course.
