The Grand to Grand Ultra and the Mauna to Mauna Ultra are the culmination of our vision to create world-class stage events in two of the remotest locations – the remotest place in America and the remotest place in the world.
We searched high and low for the most iconic courses possible. It was the unique opportunity to organize an event that would stretch from the Grand Canyon, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, to the summit of the relatively unknown but equally geologically iconic Grand Staircase, that settled the location for G2G.
After several more years of research and scouting, we decided that we had to create a race on the remotest archipelago in the world. It has everything for an amazing stage race – tough and varied terrain, beauty, the world’s tallest and largest mountains, the world’s most active volcano, and 11 of the world’s 13 climate zones.
We bring over 50 years of event management, business building and ultramarathon experience to bear on this unique event. We are delighted to have an extremely well qualified staff who round out the Grand to Grand Ultra executive team and a council of advisors consisting of some of the world's most elite ultramarathoners, who continuously provide the guidance to design and execute the world's premier stage events.
