About The Cedar Breaks at Night

Cedar Breaks at Night half marathon in Brian Head, Utah is a unique race experience unlike any other. The route takes runners through the beautiful Cedar Breaks National Monument and provides stunning views of the night sky as you run.

The course begins at 8pm, allowing plenty of time to take in the sights before sunset. You’ll wind your way up along a steep incline, giving you an amazing view of Brian Head Peak as well as surrounding mountains and canyons. After cresting the top of this hill, you’ll take on several rolling hills that will test both your endurance and speed over 13 miles. As you reach the end of this section, there are two long switchback descents down into Red Canyon: one for those who prefer fast downhill running and another for those looking to conserve energy during their descent.

In terms of scenery while running, it doesn’t get much better than Cedar Breaks! During summer months especially (which is when this race takes place), temperatures are usually quite pleasant with lows around 45 degrees Fahrenheit during August nights; perfect weather for a nighttime half marathon since it won’t be too hot or too cold while running! Throughout most of the course there should be no snow or ice to worry about either; just make sure to check local weather conditions prior to arriving so that you come prepared!

This event typically draws a small but enthusiastic crowd composed mostly from nearby areas like St George and Las Vegas; expect lots of cheering and encouragement throughout your journey! There are also aid stations every three miles where volunteers provide water/Gatorade/energy gels/etc., so don’t forget to wear your hydration pack if necessary – although there’s no wrong way to fuel yourself during this race either 🙂 For something extra special though – some years they’ll have live music playing at certain points along the course which makes for an even more unforgettable atmosphere as you run past under starlight skies above!

Overall Cedar Breaks at Night Half Marathon offers runners a truly remarkable experience with its breathtaking views combined with great company among fellow competitors set against one-of-a-kind night scenes – making it worth tackling year after year without fail each summer season in Utah.
