Race Description

This is the only Marathon, Half Marathon, and 10k where you get to run through the Little Grand Canyon in Eastern Utah and see some of the most pristine scenery in the world. This area is also known as the San Rafael Swell or BuckHorn Wash. These towering Red Rocks are not only Majestic but they tell the Geological timetable as you run through the Jurassic, Triassic and Cretaceous Era’s. There are actual dinosaur footprints on the side of the road and you run in front of one of the largest Native American Pictograph Panels in the State(The BuckHorn Panel).

Liggle Grand Canyon half: Best race I've ever run

I've run a lot of races in my day, including Boston, but the Little Grand Canyon Half is my all-time favorite. The spectacular scenery combined with the great weather and small crowd makes, for me, the ideal running event.

First 10k!

Race was well put together, although a little confusing that you have to drive to Huntington for the busses, they don't leave from Price. Route was very pretty, and moderately challenging. There's more uphill than you'd expect.
