The University of Utah Health Salt Lake City Half Marathon takes runners through a setting filled with snow-capped peaks and contrasting spring blossoms on a scenic and slightly downhill 13.1 mile course. The course is certified by USA Track & Field (USATF) and sanctioned through the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA). Divisions include open, masters and 18 age groups.
Starting off at the Olympic Legacy Bridge at the University of Utah, the site of the 2002 Winter Olympic Athlete Village, the gentle course works its way toward the base of the towering Wasatch Mountains. Next, runners travel through the Federal Heights neighborhood and the scenic 11th Avenue before dropping into downtown near Temple Square through Memory Grove. The route then snakes through Salt Lake’s legendary wide streets, passing by cozy neighborhoods and elegant estates on the way.
Finish off with a run through the gorgeous Sugar House and Liberty Park until culminating on 200 E between Library and Washington Squares. Here, the music is rocking and energy surging as crowds of enthusiastic spectators cheer on participants.
