Runners will journey through iconic Americana along 140 miles of Historic Route 66 from Seligman to Topock66 Colorado River, Arizona.
A RACE THAT CELEBRATES HISTORY
The race recognizes and celebrates the history of the Mother Road, from the Bunion Derbies; “Oakie’s” during the Dust Bowl; the boom years of family road trips after WWII; decline after the interstate system bypassed mom and-pop motels, restaurants, and shops; to grassroots resurgence leading to official recognition that Route 66 had “become a symbol of the American people’s heritage of travel and their legacy of seeking a better life.”
THE EVENT WILL HOST A MAXIMUM OF 100 RUNNERS, EACH SUPPORTED BY A DEDICATED CREW. WITH A RACE CUTOFF OF 60 HOURS, RUNNERS AND CREW WILL BE ABLE TO EXPERIENCE AND ENJOY:
- The birthplace of the historic route in Seligman
- Grand Canyon Caverns
