Sights and prices will vary depending on where each runner’s track is located. Registrations are open from now until December 15, 2019, with the late registration period running from December 16 up until the day of the marathon expo, which takes place at John C. Page Park on March 13 from 12pm to 7 pm.

Antelope Canyon Tour Options

Visitors who want a truly well-rounded experience while visiting the Page area will want to consider booking a tour of beautiful Antelope Canyon around the time of the marathon. Antelope Canyon is the most-visited and most-photographed slot canyon in the American Southwest, with many lovely sights to see and a rich history to explore. At Antelope Canyon Navajo Tours, we provide tourists with enriching tours of Upper Antelope Canyon — the most popular of the two slot canyons that make up Antelope — led by members of the Navajo Nation who are highly knowledgeable when it comes to the Canyon and Navajo culture. Visitors can choose from two tour options: the Guided Sightseers Tour, which is great for all kinds of visitors and is discounted for children under 13, and the Guided Photography Tour, which is designed for serious photographers who want a specialized experience that allows them to capture professional photography inside Antelope Canyon.

Both tours offer a well-rounded experience that allows travelers to venture inside the Canyon, which is a sacred site of the Navajo people that is accessible only by permit and while accompanied by a tour guide. Anyone who is coming to see the Antelope Canyon Ultras should consider enhancing their visit with such a tour to experience everything that the Page area has to offer.

Things to Do

If visitors are already coming to Arizona to cheer on loved ones or enjoy the race, they should consider adding even more excitement by exploring the American desert landscape. Here are some ideas for inspiration:

  • Visiting the Rainbow Bridge National Monument
