Emigration Canyon Half Marathon & 10-Miler

Saturday, June 17, 2023 • Salt Lake City, UT • Course Map

The majestic beauty of Utah’s Wasatch Mountain range is on full display throughout the winding, hilly course at the annual running of the Salt Lake Emigration Canyon Half Marathon & Relay, which moved in recent years from a late summer running in August up to June.

The race draws nearly 400 runners each year for a point-to-point race that starts at Mountain Dell Golf Course in the mountains east of downtown and finishes at the Marriott University Park Hotel on the edge of the city.

From the starting line on the frontage road near the golf course, runners follow the roadways into East Canyon and then into Emigration Canyon, making their way through Mountain Dell Canyon, Little Tree Hill and Rattlesnake Point on their way toward the finish line.

The race features paved surfaces throughout, and features its biggest hill between the start and Little Mountain; after this stretch, the course follows a long, slow descent through the Salt Lake Valley to the finish.

Runners who wish to make the run but don’t feel up to running the full 13.1 miles are invited to participate in the 10-miler race, which can also serve as a training race for the full 13.1 miles.
