The Canyon to Canyon Half Marathon is an out-and-back race that starts and finishes at East Canyon Resort, a 9,600-acre retreat and recreation area located in Henefer, Utah, a short drive from Eden and about 45 minutes from Salt Lake City.
Starting at 7:00 AM, the race takes runners along a paved road for the first mile and then heads south onto Jeremy Ranch dirt road, following the road as it parallels a quiet mountain stream through the canyon until the turnaround point.
The terrain is best described as rolling, with many short hills, some of which can get steep. There’s also lots of wildlife along the race course that runners will get a chance to see if they keep an eye out for them during the race, including raccoons, foxes and porcupines making their way along the trail.
The 10K run follows the same course, with an earlier turnaround point. Plenty of food, drinks, prizes and live music await finishers back at East Canyon Resort.
