The Bryce Canyon Half Marathon is a family-friendly, multiple-event weekend of fun in the Bryce Canyon area. It includes the Half Marathon, the 5K Run/Walk, and the Bryce Canyon Color Me Fun Run (new this year!). The Half Marathon and 5K Run/Walk are both Chip Timed.

The Half Marathon starts at 6:00 AM on July 12, 2014.

The course starts in front of Ruby’s Inn (!q=SBSU+Tropic&data=!1m8!1m3!1d3!2d[masked]!3d[masked]!2m2!1f201.98!2f75.43!4f75!2m4!1e1!2m2!1s7Ow-TwALPc840AKcgtpwNA!2e0!4m10!1m9!4m8!1m3!1d3154!2d[masked]!3d[masked]!3m2!1i1344!2i768!4f13.1&fid=5) on Hwy 63, Bryce Canyon City. It heads north, then turns right (east) onto Hwy 12, enters Bryce Canyon National Park and descends through the Park for approximately 4 miles. The downhill becomes more gradual as it leaves the Park, goes through Tropic, and continues eastward following the Paria River to Cannonville. View Map

The finish line is at the Cannonville City Park (!q=W+Center+St%2C+Cannonville%2C+UT+84718&data=!1m8!1m3!1d3!2d[masked]!3d[masked]!2m2!1f201.59!2f76.67!4f75!2m4!1e1!2m2!1sJgvc__cgJbZ540RYKBblog!2e0!4m10!1m9!4m8!1m3!1d791!2d[masked]!3d[masked]!3m2!1i1344!2i768!4f13.1&fid=5). The point-to-point course is entirely on paved roads.

One lane of traffic on Highway 12 is dedicated to the race. The other lane will be only open for escorted traffic until 9:00, when the race ends. A finisher’s medal will be presented to all who cross the finish line before 9:00 AM, Utah time (AKA Mountain Daylight Time).

Those who wish to walk the race are welcome to do so. Any runners remaining on the road will be picked up at 9:00 when the roads reopen.
