Arizona - Running through the Grand Canyon from Rim to Rim and back: Starting-point of this multiple day trip is Las Vegas, NV. For adapting to time zone and altitude we will do an easy run through Red Rock Canyon just outside of Las Vegas. The next day we will be on our way to the South Rim (approx. 2300 m) of the Grand Canyon crossing Rt. 66. The South Kaibab Trail leads down to the Colorado River and further to Phantom Ranch (approx. 1600 m). After 33 km through a grand and most colourful countryside we will – via the North Kaibab Trail – arrive at the North Rim of the Canyon (approx. 2600 m). After a short break we will run back to the South Rim. On the way back to Las Vegas we will visit Hoover Dam. Depending on the length of stay in that area a trip to Zion Nationalpark and/or Death Valley may be an option. With enough participants this trip will be carried out during the months from Oct. through March, due to moderate temperatures. If we go in Nov. it may be possible to arrange for a traditional Thanksgiving Dinner. Package upon request.
