Madness in Moab starts and finishes at the Behind the Rocks Trail, along the border of the Behind the Rocks Wilderness Study Area. Moab’s last hidden gem, its tall standing Navajo Sandstone domes and fins can be seen from many places along the course. From smooth double track to sandy … MORE

    When you hear that a course is on jeep roads, you probably think it will be an easy course. This one was far from easy though. After about 1/2 mile of downhill from the start of the 7.1 mile loop, we started about a 2 mile steady climb to the edge of the Behind the Rocks Wilderness area. This is where it started to get really scenic, but the trail became more technical with slick rock and rock shelves. After dropping down a steep draw, we then went back up a long hill that seemed to get steeper the further we went. After we got to the top, it started heading downhill until we got to the intermediate aid station, which was generously supplied with all kinds of drink, snack food, and PB sandwiches. The sand and rock road then continued downhill until we got to the road where we drove in and the rest of the course was relatively flat until we got back to the finish. Altogether, there was about 774 feet of elevation gain per 7.1 mile loop. After finishing up my 5th loop in the dark and having a difficult time seeing the course markers, I decided to call it a day and stop early. Both the main aid station at the start/finish and the intermediate one on the course were stocked like I was used to in the pre-covid days with real food as well as a wide range of snacks and energy gels. I still felt safe though, as the volunteers all wore masks and gloves. Bling included a shirt, a custom Boco trucker’s hat, and a small belt buckle on a ribbon. It was really well organized, and I can see myself going back again some day.
