Bryce Canyon Half Marathon

Coming up in one month is the Bryce Canyon Half Marathon on July 9th I think I first heard about this race in 2009. My running partner was training for it and I was just training for the upcoming collegiate year. She invited me to do it with her, but at the time I had no interest in running half marathons. The day of the half marathon came and I got a text from another friend who ran it telling me their time. I was surprised that two of my friends who didn't know each other
 ran this race. This was the first half marathon that I ever had interest in doing and it was because two of my friends both went and had a good experience. Even though this was the first one I had even considered for one reason or another I never got around to running it. I am happy to say that this year that will change.
Some of the things that are pretty cool about this race is:

  •  You will get to run through part of bryce canyon for the race, and I have heard that it is very beautiful there. 
  • The race is mostly downhill. This means there is alot of potential to get a fast time, but if you are running this race be sure to do some of your training runs down hill so you will be prepared for it. 
  • You can get half off of Kodachrome state park just for showing your race bib. 
  • All profits go back into the Bryce Canyon Community.


I am really excited to be running this race. I hope to see you all there.
