F.A.Q’s

Answers to your Frequently Asked Questions


What does the Race Map look like? And how does the race work?

The race map provided at Racer Check-in is a topographical map at a scale of approximately 1:35,000. The Checkpoints will be pre-plotted. You will choose your route, reaching as many of the Checkpoints as you can, in any order. A compass is not required, but you are certainly free to use one. Checkpoint Flags will be located at trail intersections or along a trail. Each Checkpoint will have a unique “punch” that you will stamp on your “Passport”.

The map below is a sample map of Moab’s Slick Rock Trails and is similar to the map you will get for the race (The race map will be larger, 18×24). Feel free to print and use this as a training exercise. Click on the map below for a 8.5″ x 11″ pdf map.

Who Can Race?


The Moab Epic is designed for anyone interested in experiencing an epic outdoor adventure…who can meet the physical demands of biking up to 20, or 50+ miles or up to 3-8 hours. The course has a wide variety of terrain. Single Track Trails, Slick Rock, and Jeep Roads, all with varying degrees of difficulty from beginner to advanced.

Each course is as hard as you want to make it. You reach as many of the Checkpoints as you want, in any order. Take it easy and reach only a few, or race hard to try to reach them all in under 8 hours (5 hours for the 20 mile course).
