2015 Moab Trail Marathon
A trail marathon with unparalleled scenery in the off-road utopia of Moab, Utah.
One of the most scenic trail races in the U.S. took place over the weekend, as runners flocked to the outdoor paradise of Moab, Utah, to run through the red rock splendor of the Moab Trail Marathon (which also featured a half marathon and 5K). The marathon was host to the 2015 USATF Trail Marathon National Championships. Mario Mendoza won the men’s title in 3:04:10 over Joe Gray (3:09:00), while Megan Kimmel repeated her victory in the women’s race, clocking a 3:28:00 to outdistance runner-up Stevie Kremer (3:38:15).
The race took runners through red rock canyons and awe-inspiring landscapes, such as natural arches, snow-capped mountains in the distance and more.
