Moab's sporting calendar released

Moab's sporting calendar released
20 Nov 2013

Moab has unveiled its packed sporting calendar for 2014, with the Utah city and its surrounding rocky terrain set to host a wide range of events. 

Fans of the Hollywood film 'Dodgeball' will want to get involved with the Community Dodgeball Tournament on 11 January. If you're travelling with a group of friends, why not put together a team?

Runners will want to get involved with Moab's Red Hot 55km run in February. The event is so called because when the sun's rays illuminate Moab's snow-covered sandstone spires, they create the illusion of hot embers glowing.

In April, all round athletes will be kayaking, mountain biking, trail running, canyoneering, rappelling and navigating their way around a 50-mile course through Moab's spectacular canyon landscape. 

There are plenty of quirky events in the diary too, such as October's Pumpkin Chuckin' Festival, where the Halloween favourites will be launched by trebuchets and catapults.ADNFCR-408-ID-801662753-ADNFCR
