South Mountain Half Marathon

April 24

COVID-19

We were able to hold our last two races in 2020 and both were a success in terms of safety and managing covid precautions. Our races are smaller in size due to taking place on the trails and we are confident we can safely hold these events in 2021.

We will always put our runners first. We will do whatever we can to make this race happen while keeping the runners safe. If we are unable to do this runners will be issued credits or refunds. We are optimistic though and really hope with the vaccine and safety measures we will begin beating this virus!

Why Should I sign up for this race?

Beautiful course, free breakfast, good company, race photos, custom locally made finisher medal and awards, friendly competition, performance t-shirt, and swag. What more could you want? Really if you can think of something let us know and we will try to get it!

South Mountain includes all of the paved trails runners have come to love in Draper. Namely the Porter Rockwell Trail and Canal Trail. Every distance will enjoy these trails. The half marathon also includes the best parts of Draper City itself. The trails are absolutely beautiful at the end of April when Spring is at its strongest!

Please check out the website for all the info you will need. Ask us if you have any questions, Happy Trails!

5k

The 5k starts at Wheadon Farm, a massive and stunning park. You climb a hill to the Canal Trail which you follow until making a right to cut through a neighborhood. This detour leads you to the Porter Rockwell Trail which follow until making another right turn. After this turn it is a downhill run to the finish!

3.1 miles and +150 ft elevation total
76% Paved Trail, 16% Dirt Trail, 8% Road

*There will be Trail Marshals positioned at major intersections to prevent you from getting lost or cutting!

No cutoff time, we want everyone finishing even if it means walking.

Youth Registration
Same as normal registration your child will receive a medal and shirt. We honestly will lose money with offering registrations this cheap but we know it can be expensive to sign up the whole family. My wife is a Kindergarten teacher who loves kids and I am a Personal Trainer who strongly believes in children staying active due to childhood obesity drastically increasing. Tell those kids to step away from the video games and go running! We would love to see our 5ks filled with families.

Half Marathon

The Half Marathon starts at Wheadon Farm, a massive and stunning park. You climb a hill to the Canal Trail which you follow all the way to the next aid station. From here you take the Porter Rockwell Trail going north which leads you to Draper Park Aid Station.

Draper Park is a beautiful park and leads you to the Willow Creek Trail. This trail takes you to a loop which includes Corner Canyon Highschool. You take Willow Creek Trail back to Draper Park Aid Station.

You get back on the Porter Rockwell Trail until you come back to your first aid station. You continue on Porter until taking a slight detour on to a dirt trail to avoid a street crossing. Follow this dirt trail until you reach Porter again. Finally you will come to your last aid station.

From here you begin a quick out and back. Once you have returned to the aid station it is a quick downhill sprint to Wheadon Farm Park and the finish line!
