Yá'át'ééh riders!  Welcome to the Monument Valley Bike Race! 

REGISTRATION – Online registration is now open.  The registration fee of $40 includes a finisher’s medal, performance  t-shirt, post-race food, hygiene kit, course support and awards to top finishers. Online registration will be open through Friday of race week.  Youth are $10. On-site registration will take place between on race morning.

 Any proceeds from registration or donations will benefit the work of the Dine’ Bike Project on the Navajo Nation.

FOOD & SUPPORT – Your registration includes one aid station support on the course (including fluids and Honey Stinger gels), portable toilet and light medical.  Everyone will receive a post-race food bag, drinks and fresh fruit at the finish line. 

ROUTES – The 13-mile route travels along dirt roads and double track in the Gouldings and the Oljeto community.  The route is entirely dirt road and includes some rolling terrain.  The course will travel among some beautiful buttes and rock formations for which the area is well known. Please be aware of your surrounding and others on the route.  The course will be well-marked with pin flags and cones.

If the Navajo Nation opens the tribal parks before the race, we will likely shift the race back to the park course.

WEATHER – Expect hot summer conditions.  The earlier start times will be less hot than mid-day.  You may see temps in the 80’s-90’s.  The 13-mile course means that you will be done before the main heat of the day arrives.  Chances of cloud cover, wind or precipitation in late June is minimal, though it is advisable to look ahead at the forecast a few days before the race.

AWARDS – The first 50 riders will receive a finisher’s medal.  Overall and age-groups plaque awards will be presented to the overall top riders, plus age-group winners in youth, master’s and senior age-group divisions.

The Monument Valley Bike Race is a project of the nonprofit organization NavajoYES
