About the event


True Grit Epic is a long, tough, and technical race through some of the most beautiful country in the West. The event is the Season Opener for the National Ultra Endurance Series for both the Century and Marathon Categories and often sets the pace for the series leaders. If a category is NUE next to it that means you will earn series points. But you do not have to be signed up for the series to enter. More information on NUE can be found here

You now have the option of doing the event as a Mountain/Gravel Stage Race. There are 3 stages 

Hosted near St George UT, this early-season event boasts daytime temperatures in the mid-’70s. The event starts & finishes in the center of the small enclave of Santa Clara, with tree-lined streets, live music,  and an expo.

Come see why racers travel from all over the world for this truly epic event.
