The course for the To of Utah Half Marathon is part of the USATF Utah Road Racing Circuit. It starts 7 miles up Blacksmith Fork Canyon at the Hyrum Electrical Plant and finishes at the Providence Zollinger Park. As runners wind down the canyon, they find aid stations every 3 miles, run by local volunteers and organizations. All finishers will recieve a finisher's medal and prize drawings will be held during the awards ceremony where 2 treadmills and many prizes will be given away. Race course will be open for 3 1/2 hours. Wheelchair and hand-cycle divisions. Walkers may participate. The course follows the Top of Utah Marathon course from mile 7 to 21. It's a great training run for the Top of Utah Marathon and for the St. George Marathon.
This course will help those who are training for the Top of Utah Marathon and for the St. George Marathon have a good training run on downhill to get ready for the marathon.
