AUGUST 28-31, 2020

Welcome to the Hoodoo 500 ultra-marathon cycling event presented by Planet Ultra! The most epic and challenging event of its kind, 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 descents, and the best post-event banquet with awards and prizes.
