Moab is a half-day drive from the Denver metro area and 3-4 hours from Salt Lake City. Lodging options range from camping to reasonable, family-friendly hotels to 5-start resorts. Weekends in spring and fall get very busy and it is advisable to book well in advance, especially for the Canyonlands Half Marathon and Thelma & Louise Half Marathon. Moab Half Marathon, Inc. does not guarantee lodging to entrants and will not refund registration due to lack of lodging availability or for any other reason.
