The Grand to Grand Ultra - Page 4

“Ray got out of the car and just started running,” Tess says. “For him to be blown away by the course was huge for us, because name a place in the world and he’s been to it.”

The home base for the Grand to Grand Ultra is the small, economically struggling town of Kanab near the Utah-Arizona border. Colin says Kanab’s community leaders are eager to get the town on the map as a trail running and hiking destination. “This is a big deal for them,” says Colin. “The response we’ve been getting from the town is nothing short of miraculous.”

Sarah Lavender Smith is a writer from the Bay Area who blogs about trail running and travel at TheRunnersTrip.com. She’ll participate in the Grand to Grand and cover the experience for Trail Runner.
