About The Soapstone Mountain Half Marathon
The Soapstone Mountain Half Marathon in Kamas, Utah is a beautiful and challenging race. Taking place on July 29th, 2023, this half marathon provides runners with stunning views of the Wasatch Mountains and lush valleys as they wind their way through some of the state’s most picturesque terrain. The course starts at the Park City Municipal Golf Course before heading north up to Soapstone Mountain. From there, it proceeds along a winding road that offers spectacular views of the surrounding area before descending back down into Kamas Valley for an exhilarating finish line experience.
The scenery during this race is simply breathtaking. Runners will be treated to panoramic mountain vistas framed by tall pine trees and shimmering lakes as they make their way through the course. At certain points along the route, you can even catch glimpses of wild horses grazing in nearby fields or elk roaming across distant hillsides. With such incredible sights to take in while running, it’s easy to forget that you’re actually participating in a competitive event!
July weather conditions tend to be fairly mild throughout Utah but one should still come prepared for any type of weather just in case; temperatures often range between 80-90F (26-32C). As far as crowds go, expect plenty of support from enthusiastic spectators who line up alongside parts of the route eager to cheer on runners all day long – adding another level fun and excitement!
One unique aspect about this particular half marathon is its postrace celebration: after crossing the finish line, participants are given free ice cream cones courtesy local vendors! This delicious treat serves as both reward for completing 13 miles and reminder that no matter how grueling your training may have been leading up to race day – finishing a half marathon can always be sweet!
