AXS Moab - 50+ Miles, 6-12hrs

April 11th, 2015 (Date Tentative)

The 15th annual AXS series kicks off in Moab on April 11th, 2015. This is one of the most spectacular venues in the series and certainly a racer favorite. Mountain bike through the canyons on jeep roads and some of Moab's epic single track trails. Kayaks through the canyon on the Colorado River, and rappel down a breath taking 300' cliff. We hope to see you in April.

8+ miles of paddling the Colorado River.

A breathtaking 300' rappel!

Once you see the maps and plot the race your gear logistics will all come together.

Solo rentals are available from local outfitters or directly from us: We are sold out of gear rentals but you can still get rentals at Canyon Voyages in Moab.
