Set for its annual running at the height of summer here in northern Utah’s Cache Valley, along a course that starts at the top of Green Canyon and then heads down into the valley below, the North Logan ‘Rockin’ Half Marathon follows a point-to-point route along a combination of dirt, gravel and paved surfaces, and features a few challenging hills.
Bands play live music all along the route. You’ll start the race along Green Canyon Drive at the top of the canyon overlooking the city, a suburb of nearby Logan that’s home to just under 9,000 people and features some of the most breathtaking views of the mountains surrounding the valley.
From there, the race heads south toward North Logan, where you’ll make a series of turns up and down the length of several city streets, past Elk Ridge Park and through the heart of North Logan. All along the way, bands will be set up to play music to cheer the runners on, and they’ll also perform at the finish line too.
The bands — everywhere a band plays, you’ll also find an aid and refreshment station — will play at miles 3, 6, 9 and 11, and there will also be porta-potties scattered from the start to the finish.
Finish at Greenville Elementary. The half marathon will bring you up and down the city streets and in to the finish line at Greenville Elementary, where the 5K will start and finish. (You don’t have to sign up ahead of time for the 5K, organizers say — you can sign up on the day of the race.)
