Antelope Canyon, a terrific place to walk, hike, climb, explore and this weekend was THE place to go for a run.

The Antelope Canyon Ultra Marathon offered a choice of 100 mile, 50 mile, 55k and half marathon trails to tackle, sat and sun-run through Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend before winding around our city with a tremendous view of Lake Powell as the backdrop.

Special awards were given to the top three overall male and female finishers for each distance.

The snow melted away pretty quickly Friday- Saturday morning Runners from all over the world converged upon our little town for the Antelope Canyon Ultras  Marathon- sun shining bright Sunday morning when those who took on the 100 mile portion of the marathon finally finished–winners in all four categories took 1st 2nd 3rd accolades. Whats interesting is the male who ran the fastest for the one hundred mile race ran as anonymous but NOW we know who it is- and it was a runner from Page who took the 100 mile marathon  first place honors…Randolph Curley wearing number 193 came in first- clocked at the time of 21 hours 55 minutes 35.3 seconds —2nd place in the one hundred miler was Joseph Bradshaw of Parowan Utah, 3rd place was Farshad Keyghobadi from San Francisco who made it in 25 hours 38 mins.
