Kokopelli Relay Race Description

JUNE  10 - 11 ,  2022

 

Moab: Maybe you've heard of it, maybe you haven't...but one visit is all it takes for the breathtaking red rock to captivate you forever. Add to that majestic scenery the fun of taking a bunch of your buddies and cycling, non-stop, from Moab to St. George! Either you or a teammate will be in the saddle at all times while the rest of your team pretends to sleep, recover, and refuel to prepare for the next leg. Pedaling 530+ miles over awe-inspiring beauty makes for an unforgettable experience that will most certainly test your mind, body, and soul.

The race begins on Friday, June 10th at Grand County High School  608 Fourth E St in Moab, Utah and follows the scenic backroads of southern Utah, traveling through two National Parks and some of Utah's most beautiful landscapes. The race will continue through the night into Saturday until each team reaches the finish at Unity Park in Ivins, Utah, near St. George. Each team will include 4 - 8 cyclists, unless otherwise approved. The course will have 24 legs/transition areas for all except the Men 4A category (which will have 12).

 

Men = 100% Men

Women = 100% Women

Mixed = At Least 1 female and one male

Beautiful Route, Well Organized

The scenery in Kokopelli is second to none. From towering sandstone cliffs to high mountain passes this course has it all. Even better than the scenery is that the race is well organized. The website and pre-race emails were helpful in preparing for the event. The course was well marked, despite being over 500 miles in length. Grab a few friends or ride the entire thing yourself. This is a must do race.

Stupid COVID

We were lloking foward to this race the moment we crossed the line in Ivins last year. Unfortunately, they had to delay the relay. Cameron was easy to work with regarding our fees and registrations. We are looking forward to 2021 for sure!

Best Cycling Event of the Year!

The most beautiful, the most fun and the most anticipated cycling event of the year! I was so happy to ride with my teammates again in 2021 after the 2020 hiatus. Each leg of the relay has its challenges and rewards…this year’s reward for me was the middle of the night leg from Boulder to Escalante…just me, the Milky Way and millions of stars lighting the road! It was the experience of a lifetime! Thank you Kokopelli organizers!

Best way to not sleep all night

This is a great event. The course is absolutely incredible and its an event that will challenge you, no matter what level you are at. I've always done a 4 person team, which can really push you, even if you are very fast. At the same time, an 8 person team makes this race approachable for just about anyone who likes to ride a bike. The race is well ran, especially if you pay attention to their communication.

2021 Race Review
Review On:
a great team event

Riding the Kokopelli Relay course in a four-rider team is a challenge, but a very rewarding one. I offer sincere compliments to the organizers for arranging for a great event in 2021. Especially noteworthy was the organizers' effective re-routing of the relay at the last minute, which was necessitated by wildfires (or threat thereof). My only negative critique of the event pertains to the low number of toilets at the transfer points. There was almost always a line of three to five folks waiting. Adding a second porta-potty, especially at transfers between Dirty Devil and Escalante would have been really welcome. And I never did find one at all in Henrieville. The weather really cooperated this year. The usual screaming cross-wind did not materialize on the Cedar-to-Enterprise leg. The fears of exorbitant temperatures were unfounded, even on the sun-baked climb to Mule Canyon Transfer which turned out to be warm but not sweltering. Crazy, isn't it, that a rider who was fighting of heat stroke on one leg had to really bundle up with extra layers and regretted leaving his ski gloves at home on the next (descent from Boulder Mtn)! In all, the memory of a very pleasant but challenging ride across the state will linger for another year.

2021 Race Review
Review On:
mentally and physically challenging and rewarding

We attended this event for the first time in 2019 and learned a great deal (many things the hard way). In 2021 we were much better prepared logistically and still learned a great deal about what we could have done differently. The race is well organized and the last minute route changes were well communicated. This event will challenge you in many ways and you have to expect the unexpected. The temperature shifts are drastic (my first leg my Garmin bike computer said 109 and my overnight leg my Garmin said 35 degrees. I would certainly STRONGLY recommend this event to any person or group of people looking for an epic event. We traveled from the KC area and this event is worth the trip.

Fun Time

This was my first relay race and I had a really good time. I was unprepared for the cool night time temps, but fortunately I was able to borrow a teammate's jacket. This was a fun way to see southern Utah. The provided race guide was very helpful and I was constantly referring to it to check out the length and elevation changes for the various legs.
