The scenery throughout this course is absolutely stunning; you’ll be surrounded by majestic mountain views as you make your way around the lake’s shoreline.
The weather during that time of year can range from hot to mild depending on what day it falls on, but dress appropriately with light layers and sunscreen regardless! As for crowds, there are typically several hundred runners who participate in this event every year, making it one of Utah’s most popular half marathons. Volunteers line up throughout the route to cheer everyone on and provide much needed motivation for those long miles!
