Join Bryce Canyon Half Marathon

The sorbet-colored, sandcastle-like spires and hoodoos of Bryce Canyon National Park pop like a Dr Seuss picture book creation. Though the smallest of southern Utah’s national parks, this is perhaps the most immediately visually stunning, particularly at sunrise and sunset when an orange wash sets the otherworldly rock formations ablaze. Steep trails descend from the rim into the 1000ft amphitheaters of pastel daggers, then continue through a maze of fragrant juniper and undulating high-mountain desert. The location, 77 miles east of Zion and 39 miles west of Escalante, helps make this a must-stop on any southern Utah park itinerary. With that being said, the Bryce Canyon Ultra is the place to be.

This scenic, mountain course runs along the western edge of the Paunsaugunt Plateau, offering spectacular views above and below the hoodoos. The race is run at high elevation, with most of the miles on this rugged course between 8,000 – 9,000 ft.

Course Highlights

The Half Marathon course is absolutely beautiful but very challenging. Shuttles for the Half Marathon will pick runners up at Ruby's Inn at 9:30 AM. The race starts at 10:00 AM at the entrance to Red Canyon campground and takes the Golden Wall loop, which returns to the main canyon after about 4.5 miles. From here, head down canyon on the bike path to the Thunder Mountain trailhead, where your only aid station will be set up. Make sure to fill up your hydration system here because it's a long and grueling 7.5 miles uphill to the finish line from here!
