Rim Rock Marathon

November 9, 2013 • 8 am • Colorado National Monument

Join one of the most scenic marathons in the world. Winding over the Colorado National Monument in Grand Junction, Colorado, the race boasts views of towering monoliths within a vast plateau and canyon panorama. You can experience sheer-walled, red rock canyons along the twists and turns of the course.

In addition to individual marathoners, two-person teams can also compete in the race, each will run approximately a half marathon. Relay teams are full.

Proceeds from the Rim Rock Marathon benefit Mesa Monument Striders and Colorado Mesa University Track & Field and Cross Country teams.
