Ultrarunning legend Marshall Ulrich and his wife Heather are excited to announce the Route 66 UltraRun November 11-13, 2022. Runners will journey through iconic Americana along 140 miles of Historic Route 66 from Seligman to Topock66 Colorado River, Arizona.
A Race that
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 inaugural 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
The Hualapai Tribe in Peach Springs
Giganticus Headicus in Antares
Route 66 museum in Kingman
Cool Springs restored Mobile gas station
Burros in the streets of Oatman
And much more
Unique finishers medals, belt buckles, and awards showcasing amazing custom artwork; a traveling trophy cup; special recognition for two runners; and a rockin’ finishers party are additional “Kicks” to the Route 66 UltraRun.
