Race Course Information
Both races are point-to-point downhill courses through the canyon consisting entirely of asphalt road (except for a very short section on dirt at the start of the 5-mile race).
Half Marathon – 7:00 am
5-Mile – 7:00 am
There is a time limit of 3 hours and 15 minutes. This is an average pace of 14:53 per mile for the half marathon.
Due to course logistics, safety concerns & course support participants should plan on finishing no later than 10:15 am. Participants not reaching the finish area in this amount of time will be picked up by the sweep vehicle or choose to become a pedestrian and finish the race.
Both races are chip timed and official results are based on gun time.
The start of each race will have a truck available to transport your drop bag to the finish area.
**Any items dropped along the course will be donated to charity, please don’t drop items along the course expecting to get them back.
