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 Half Marathon is the place to be.

Come enjoy the weekend with friends and family! Run the Half, 5k &/or color run. Cool off in a waterfall, eat at one of our delicious local restaurants, and hike the beautiful Bryce Canyon trails all in one trip!

Our Half Marathon always starts in Bryce Canyon Utah, goes through Tropic and ends in Cannonville. 

The Half Marathon starts at Ruby's Inn on Hwy 63, Bryce (elev. 7,652 ft.). The course heads north, then turns east onto National Scenic Byway 12. The route descends through Bryce Canyon National Park, through the town of Tropic, and ends in Cannonville (elev. 5,800ft.)

Course Highlights

The race begins at 6:00 AM at Ruby’s Inn on Highway 63, in Bryce, Utah. The course heads north briefly, then turns east onto National Scenic Byway 12, where runners are treated to spectacular views of the sunrise as it lights up the pink cliffs and red walls of the canyon ahead.

For the next four miles, the route descends through Bryce Canyon National Park, offering beautiful vistas of the unique sandstone pinnacles and spires that rise from the bottom of the canyon.

After mile five, the course leaves the park and the downhill becomes more gradual as the route rolls through pastures and ranches, crossing the Tropic Ditch and descending into the town of Tropic.

From there, the course continues eastward along the Paria River and toward the finish in Cannonville, at an elevation of 5,800 feet. Brilliant red and white rock formations frame the finish line, creating a memorable end to the race.
