Welcome back to all that have attended the 1st and/or 2nd year, and a big welcome to those planning to attend for the first time in 2009. This year is going to be bigger and more exciting than both years past, without a doubt. It's going to be held at the same place: The Old Spanish Trail Arena on the southeast side of town off 191. We’ve added an additional day of organized trail rides and some more events in the evenings. We’ll have a record number of OEM’s and vendors there supporting you with great products and support. If you’re wondering what your registration covers, here you go:
Please Read Before Registering:
The registration fee applies to everyone that attends: Kids, Parents, Spouses, Friends, Everyone. If your spouse/friend/child is a passenger in your UTV in any of the events(Poker, Tug of War, Barrel Racing, Pole Bending, Drag Races, and Balance Beam), please select 0 for those events when registering for them. The prizes will be per UTV, not per person.
In addition, if you have children/spouse/friend and they'd like to come with you on the poker run on their ATV/dirtbike, they are not required to pay the $5/event. But, if your children/spouse/friend wants to participate in the event and be eligible for the prizes, the $5 would apply to their registration. But, keep in mind that the prizes will be tailored towards UTV's, not ATV's or dirtbikes.
What IS included in your registration?
- Organized Trail Rides 13-16th - Easy, Moderate, & Difficult Wed.,Thur., Fri., & Sat.

- All trail guides will carry a Radio/CB, GPS, Cell Phone, Maps, First Aid Kit, Tools, and Recovery Equipment.
- Organized trail rides are subject to change and are based on registration order. This means that as the groups fill up, it's possible you'll leave in the second or third group. It’s highly recommend you pre-register below.
What does it cost?
- $45/Child below 16
- $20/Post Event DVD
Every person must register, because of the BLM, SITLA, and the Insurance requirements. For those that have come in the past, and you’re wondering why the fees have increased, here’s the breakdown:
- Because of the added day, BLM costs an extra $5/person
- BLM prices have increased to $5/day/person from $4/day/person, so an additional $8/person total
- T-Shirts are included this year for everyone
- Insurance has gone up $16/person
So, we’ve tried to keep it as low as possible for you, but at the same time couldn’t afford to eat the entire increased expenses.

Make sure your UTV’s are legal to ride in Moab:
Okay, last but not least, if you have children that will be riding a UTV, ATV, or dirtbike, you need to call 800-648-7433 and ask for the non-resident course testing materials. They will send you a manual, test, and answer sheet that your children will have to pass(in your presence ), so it shouldn't be hard. They will then issue you a 30 day temp permit, and keep in mind they will need to be 8 years old to when they get a driver's license to fit into this category.
In case you’re wondering, Utah has passed a law to allow street legal registration of OHVs for Utah State residents. We’re in the process of getting approval to have temporary access for the event to run on paved roads to get to and from the trailheads. If this doesn’t happen, it’s not a big deal, because we’ll operate in the same fashion as last year with police escorts. If you want to guarantee your vehicle is okay to ride on the paved roads, complete all the requirements listed here: Utah State Parks » Off-Highway Vehicles » In-State Registration But, if you want to play it safe, plan on bringing gas cans and parking your UTV locked up in the Arena and driving to and from your campground, unless you’re staying at OK RV Park, which is on-site. If you’re coming in a motorhome with no additional transportation, I’d recommend booking at OK RV Park. Keep in mind, all of this will change if/when we get approval to ride on the paved roads, so stay tuned.
