About The Runtastic Dino
The Runtastic Dino Half Marathon in Vernal, Utah on May 13th 2023 is a unique and exciting race. The course takes you through some of the most beautiful terrain that Utah has to offer. From start to finish, you’ll be running over rolling hills, across wide open meadows, and along dusty trails surrounded by majestic mountains.
The weather for this time of year is usually mild with temperatures ranging from the high 40s to low 60s during the day. There may be some windy days depending on how close it is to winter but overall it should be quite pleasant for running. With all of the natural beauty around you during your run, there will certainly be plenty of motivation!
In terms of crowd support, you won’t find many spectators due to its rural location but that doesn’t mean they aren’t cheering you on in spirit! Every runner who crosses the finish line will receive an official Runtastic Dino t-shirt as well as have their name printed in recognition at the end-of-race ceremony at Dinosaur National Monument Park which makes up part of this event’s route.. All finishers also get a custom medal commemorating their accomplishments so even if there aren’t crowds present everyone can still celebrate together afterwards.
One special aspect about this half marathon is that runners are able to get up close and personal with fossils located throughout Dinosaur National Monument Park which adds a certain amount of uniqueness to this particular race when compared with others in similar locations. Additionally runners must traverse two river crossings as part of their journey adding another layer excitement not typically found at other races making this one memorable experience for those who participate!
Overall anyone looking for an adventure while testing out their limits should definitely consider taking part in Runtastic Dino Half Marathon – Vernal UT come May 13th 2023!
