Dino Half Marathon
May 8 @ 7:30 am - 11:00 am
LIMITED AVAILABILITY: Due to COVID we are having to limit the number of Half Marathon slots available this year. We will have Limited Availability Pricing, so make sure to sign up sooner rather than later.
The Dino Half is one of the best courses in Utah! Come ready to get your PR!
We want to invite you, your friends, and family to the 2021 Dino Half! Enjoy the amazing sights and experience of the Dino Run in historic Vernal, UT. Vernal was dubbed Dinosaurland by no mistake, it is home to the largest quarry of prehistoric Jurassic dinosaur bones!
Every three years, Runtastic celebrates a Dinosaur era with unique medals of dinosaurs from that era. The 2019 medal featured the Tanystropheous, last year showcased the Coelophysis, and this year the medal will feature the Nothosaurus. The Nothosaurus was a large semi-aquatic carnivore, with a lifestyle similar to that of a sealion. They could grow up to 7 m (23 ft) long.
Register now and don’t miss out on the 3 year Triassic medal. To make sure you will receive the Triassic medal, you must have ran or registered for the 2019, 2020, and 2021 Races. (One of them must be in person) Make sure you register early-there are a limited number of Triassic Medals. (To register for 2019, 2020 or 2021 virtual races click on the links on the side menu.)
The starting line for the half marathon is at the Top of Dry Fork Canyon where you will enjoy the beautiful, fast, fun downhill course. The 5K run is a loop that starts and finishes at Maeser Elementary School. There is something for the whole family to enjoy. For those younger Dino runners, they can enjoy the Kids 1/2 mile that starts at Maeser Elementary School in Vernal.
