Utah > Neola Half Marathon & 5K
Neola, UT • Friday, July 4, 2014 • Course Map
Designed as both an Independence Day celebration and as a race that gives runners a chance to experience the rugged, mountainous beauty of northwestern Utah's Ashley National Forest and Uintah Canyon, the Neola Half Marathon & 5K features a course with numerous uphill and downhill stretches, especially in the race's first few miles, followed by a long, steady section mixed with flat and downhill stretches toward the finish line at Neola Community Park.
Participating runners will need to arrive at Neola Community Park early in the morning in order to sign in and board the bus that will take them to the starting line, which lies up the nearby mountains in Uintah Canyon. The event's 5K race will start at 7:00 AM; those running in the 5K are asked to meet at Neola Community Park to sign in for the race as well.
