One magical aspect of the Grand to Grand Ultra is the camp. Each morning, the camp is erected in a unique location in readiness for the arrival of our competitors. The camp comprises large stand up tents, each of which accommodates eight competitors, as well as the medical tent, social tent, hot and cold water supplies and clean, comfortable portable toilets.
While the competitors are busy out on the course, our hard working camp crew is busy transporting and creating the next camp in a remote location.
The G2G camps have the perfect ambience. Competitors socialize both inside their tents but also mix in the areas around the campfire and social tent. It is the perfect place to recover from your hard day on the course and put your feet up!
The G2G course was designed in such a way as to provide for unique campsites with breathtaking views. The unique Camp 1 is located at a remote rim of the Grand Canyon, one of the Seven Natural Wonders Of The World. Camp 2 is nestled at the bottom of the Vermillion Cliffs, which are home to the California condors, America’s largest bird. Camp 3 is surrounded by beautiful red mesas in the middle of the desert. Elephant Butte camp, which is also the Long Stage camp, has a panoramic view of famous Zion National Park. Camp 5 has a close up view of the unusual Diana’s Throne while Camp 6 is at higher altitude - at the base of the Pink Cliffs and the remarkable hoo-doos.
All of the camps are special and provide you with an opportunity to reconnect with nature.
