Talking with runners today, from last years Moab Spring run,
Last years runners were excited when told there is a new course.
Runners said they would like to run the new Course at dead horse point road,
May 7th for the 26.2 Marathon.
This new course is different than last year. (Much more runner friendly.)
The run has an easy fairly continuous slight downhill for about the full course.
Last year all the drop came in the 1st part of the run.

This is one of the best courses in the State of Utah, for an easy long
distance run, and a perfect time of year. Early Morning start.

What makes this course even a better course, very little traffic goes
out to dead horse point early in the morning, it is a dead end road with side bike/run paths on both side of road, then goes onto a paved trail.

The road turns to a paved trail as it goes under the new highway, go under highway into a tunnel under highway 191, east of Arches National Park.
The Marathon May 7th 2005 will continue on a mostly new paved trail, going past Arches National park to the colorado river.

You Can now register on line, mail in or credit card registration to make it easy.
Also get your room at www.Aarchwayinn.com (ask for runners discount at the host (Best Hotel.) filling up, contact soon to be close.
Hope to see you in Moab,Utah April 16th, and May 7th of 2005.

Description: of Dead Horse State Park area.
Each year, thousands of visitors walk the red rock mesa that is Dead Horse Point State Park and gaze at a labyrinth of canyons far below. The park provides a breathtaking panoramic view of the sculptured pinnacles and buttes of Canyonlands National Park and the caramel colored waters of the mighty Colorado River 2,000 feet below. A nature trail follows the rim of the mesa, and a state of the art visitor center orients visitors with the incredible geologic history of the area. Dead Horse Point State Park is located near both Arches and Canyonlands National Parks on State Road 313, 18 miles off Hwy 191 near Moab. The park offers a 21-unit campground and reservations are highly recommended. Water is limited at this point; visitors should fill their recreation vehicle water tanks before visiting the park.
