The Grand to Grand Ultra 2016 will take place from September 25 to October 1, 2016. This is the fifth edition of the 170-mile footrace, which starts at a remote location on the north rim of the Grand Canyon and ends at over 8,500 feet on the summit of the Grand Staircase. The race is unique in America as it is entirely self-supported, meaning that competitors have to carry all of their food, sleeping bag and other essential supplies for the week-long event, which takes place over six stages. Organizers provide water at checkpoints and a tent at a roving camp each night in the desert. This year, it is expected there will be a sell-out 170 competitors taking part, from more than 25 countries. At the time of writing, only a few spots remain available and you will have to be quick if you still want to enter the race this year! Spectators will also be able to see the competitors at approximately the half-way point, as they pass through Best Friends Animal Sanctuary on the afternoon of Tuesday, September 27. This race is considered to be one of the toughest footraces on the planet and attracts amazing endurance athletes from around the world. More info can be found at www.g2g.com
