Ultra Adventures holds running events in Zion National Park, Grand Canyon, and Bryce Canyon. They have a sustainability mission statement with the following points:
- Solar powered event
- Supporting Local Businesses and artisans
- Supporting local communities
Vacation Races holds half marathon races in various locations were there are national parks, including Yosemite, Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, Rocky Mountain National Parks, and more — which is similar to Ultra Adventures in terms of location, but are all half-marathons. They have a “Cup Free” policy (for example, for the Yosemite Half Marathon).
The locations of these races are places where you “run where you play”m which is the tagline for Vacation Races. [ BTW: Ultra Adventures tagline is “run elevated” ]
These events tend to be more expensive compared to road races and non-environmentally sensitive events, however, they are tend to be sold out quickly.
