8th Annual Southern Utah ATV Fun Run
Contact person: Ray Wells, President, Utah/Arizona ATV Club. Phone: 435 644-5300

The Utah/Arizona ATV Club is announcing the 8th annual Southern Utah ATV Fun Run, scheduled for Saturday, May 1, 2010, Pre-registration begins at 8:30 AM.

This years Southern Utah ATV Fun Run route will take riders through some of the breathtaking beauty of the Red Sandstone country northeast of Kanab, Utah. You do not want to miss this years ride. The Fun Run will be staged at the new Crocodile/Hog Canyon trailhead parking area. Directions from Kanab; take US Hwy 89 east approximately 8 miles to Johnson Canyon, then turn north (left) up Johnson Canyon  going approximately 8 miles. The turn off to the staging area will be clearly signed.

The Southern Utah ATV Fun Run is a family friendly event that can be enjoyed by all. It is during this event that our membership and the many participants (more than 200 last year) come together to enjoy and ride the designated trails of some of the beautiful and scenic Color Country of southern Utah.  The Utah/Arizona ATV Club also believes in the practice of preserving the natural beauty of our public lands, treading lightly and cleaning up as we go. This years Fun Run is expecting many other ATV enthusiasts from the tri-state area to take part in this years exciting ride, so make your plans early.  We invite you, your family and friends to come and enjoy this FUN RUN event along with us. Meet new friends and if you choose you can take a chance to win many of the great prizes available this year. Soft drinks and lunches are available ($5 per person) at the staging area. Please sign up for your hamburger lunch at registration.

The Utah/Arizona ATV Club is a well-established non-profit organization with more than 150 individual members coming from Southern Utah, and Northern Arizona. Our club takes pride in our volunteer community service activities. The club is involved in many other community service events such as highway clean up, monitoring and cleaning OHV Trails and protecting our public lands. We often support our local schools and students and other community charitable organizations. With our varied membership and our fellowship, we enjoy riding our ATVs through some of the most beautiful ATV trails in the USA.

Since 2007, our ATV Club has helped develop several new recreational Trailhead Staging areas with the Peak-A-Boo trailhead and staging area being the most recent. The new Crocodile/Hog Canyon trailhead, in Johnson Canyon is the staging area for this years Fun Run. These new staging areas provide outdoor enthusiasts the opportunity to access our local designated ATV trails and roads. Our efforts are not only for the OHV enthusiasts; the staging areas also benefit other visitors interested in a variety of outdoor activities year round. Additionally, our Club provides instruction by teaching responsible OHV operation enforcing the concept of Tread Lightly and encouraging outdoor ethics to preserve the beauty of our public lands.

The Utah/Arizona ATV Club works closely with citizens from our local communities; we enjoy the support of the City of Kanab, Kane County, Kane County Travel Council, the B.L.M. and the Grand Staircase/Escalante National Monument field offices in putting this Fun Run together. We thank the many local businesses who offer contributions and sponsorship, which ensures the success of this annual event.
We are looking forward to seeing you at this years Utah Arizona ATV Club Fun Run. Visitor information may be found at Multimedia file viewing and clickable links are available for registered members only!!  You need to Login or Register!!
. There are many fine Motels and Campgrounds located in Kanab, and some dry camping available at dispersed sites near the staging area. Call for further information.

2010 Fun (Poker) ATV Ride.

We expect about 200 people to show up. The ride should be around 30 miles and ride conditions would be rated easy. There will be five stations to draw hands over the entire course. There is lots of deep sand trails, some hills and I believe some creek crossings. Should have many views of the white cliffs and the JohnR Flat area NE of Kanab. Since it is a family event any difficult routes are avoided. If you are coming in for a few days, we can certainly help with some other interesting rides.

This looks like it could have some potential.  But to travel that far we would want to be able to put together more than one day of riding.  Who else would consider something like that -- maybe Thursday, Friday and Saturday with one of those being a Hog Canyon ride and then this on Saturday?

Regarding the other rides in the Kanab area in addition to our ATV Fun Run event on Saturday May 1st.
A ride from the staging over to Hog Canyon would be a pretty difficult ride taking you down what we call the Mosdell. Actually there is even one even more difficult route. That would be a great ride.
For another ride, I have spoken with the ATV club and we are now planning to take out a group onto the Grand Staircase Monument, Sunday morning to some petroglyph panels, the Inchworm Arch, and to some Dino Tracks, and out to Nephi Pasture.
