Course Map

New year, new course! This year our Zion Half Marathon course is going to be a gorgeous run on the west side of the park up on Smith Mesa Road. This course will be on the west side of the park. While you run, you’ll get amazing panoramic views of Zion. It’s not technically trail, but the course will be on all dirt road. (Please note, this course is subject to change.)

*It is ultimately our goal to return to our original Springdale course, but we have to wait for construction to finish on highway 9. This should be possible for 2019.


Elevation Map

You can see the elevation map below. It’s a lot of up-and-down, and there’s a couple climbs you’ll need to train for. But you can see that the total elevation gain isn’t too bad. Plus, the views you’ll get along the way will be worth it!

Start & Finish Times

Start and finish times are TBD. We’ll update this page as soon as they’re finalized.

Weather Issues

We have moved this race to a later date in the year in order to have a better chance of good weather. If we get rain during race weekend, we will need to move the race to a plan B. We will not know if this is necessary until the week of the race. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation if that happens. We will update all of our runners immediately if we have to move to a plan B.
