The route takes runners along a picturesque path through the heart of Provo and its surrounding area. Starting at Brigham Young University, participants will head south towards Utah Lake before turning back toward downtown Provo. Along the way they will pass by scenic landmarks such as Vivian Park and Mount Timpanogos.
The typical weather in late August can range from hot to cool depending on your speed, so it’s important to dress appropriately for whatever conditions you may encounter during your run. You’ll also want to bring plenty of water since there are no official aid stations along this course!

Additionally, each year there are special activities planned throughout downtown Provo that all racers can enjoy when they finish their run – including live music performances, food trucks, vendors selling unique items from around town, and more!
Of course what makes Not Your Grandma’s Half Marathon truly special is its commitment to giving back to communities across Utah – every participant’s registration fee goes directly towards various charities committed to improving lives here in our state.
