Welcome to the 9th annual Hoodoo 500 ultra-marathon bicycle race presented by Planet Ultra! The most epic and challenging ultracycling race, the Hoodoo 500 route passes through or around three National Parks, three National Monuments and several Utah State Parks. The scenery varies from majestic cliffs and striking red rock hoodoos to aspen and pine forests and high mountain meadows. All the best of Utah’s Color Country!

Geologically speaking, hoodoos are tall, skinny spires of rock that protrude from the bottom of arid basins and sedimentary rock. Mystically speaking, hoodoo means a magical spell; which is what the Hoodoo 500 experience will cast upon you. Come test yourself, and bring your lucky mojo…

Amazing scenery, quiet roads, epic climbs, exhilarating decents, and the best post race banquet with awards and prizes.

500+ mile Solo, Tandem, 2-Person, and 4-Person Relay Teams, raced non-stop or 3-day stage race. 300-mile Solo, Tandem and 2-Person Relay Teams, non-stop or 2-day stage race. Bring a crew or request an invite to race self-supported with use of our drop bag service.
