Running a marathon is tough, but the stunning canyons and mountains near Fruita makes the grueling 26.2 miles worth it. We’re not kidding about the difficulty level of this race around the Colorado National Monument: You’ll climb an impressive 2,500 vertical feet in just the first 4.5 miles. If that seems too intimidating, you can grab a friend and complete the contest relay style.
