We just held our most recent Bryce Canyon Half Marathon we wanted to post some details about this on our blog. Learn more about this half marathon event by visiting the link.
The Bryce Canyon Half Marathon is an annual event held in July. The race begins at Ruby’s Inn near the entrance to Bryce Canyon National Park and heads north on Scenic Byway 12, ending in Cannonville. Competitors race through the park from a starting elevation of 7,652 feet, down through the town of Tropic to the finish line in Cannonville at 5,800 feet. The early morning race ends by 9 a.m. so runners can avoid the summer heat. A $3,000 purse is divided amongst the top five men and women.
Walkers have the option to participate in a 5K Run/Walk along the road to Kodachrome State Park; the loop begins and ends at Cannonville Park. Shuttle buses are available, along with several water/first aid stations. Snacks are available to half-marathon runners at the finish line. Expect early morning road closures along Scenic Highway 12 and Highway 63 to safely accommodate participants. View our events calendar here.
