About The Vigor Big Cottonwood Canyon Half Marathon

The Vigor Big Cottonwood Canyon Half Marathon in Cottonwood Heights, Utah is an event that promises to be a memorable experience. The 13 May 2023 race will feature a stunning route along the picturesque Big Cottonwood Canyon. Racers will start their journey at the gateway of Little Cottonwood Canyon and ascend almost two thousand feet as they make their way up the canyon’s winding roads. Views of snow-capped peaks, lush meadows, and babbling brooks are just some of the sights runners can expect as they traverse this beautiful area.

The typical weather for early May in Utah is mild with temperatures ranging from about 50 degrees Fahrenheit during the morning hours to around 70 degrees by mid-afternoon. There is also a chance for rain or snow showers so runners should come prepared with appropriate clothing and gear if needed.

Runners can look forward to an enthusiastic crowd cheering them on all along the course! Local spectators and friends and family members often line up near key points to cheer on participants throughout the race – it’s sure to provide plenty of motivation for anyone taking part in this half marathon.

One special thing about this particular half marathon is its proximity to Salt Lake City – it’s only 25 miles away! This makes it easy for out-of-towners who want to participate without having too far of a drive back home after completing their goal! Additionally, those looking for something extra may opt into one of several post-race activities available such as hiking nearby trails or visiting one of many local attractions like Hogle Zoo or Red Butte Garden & Arboretum.

Overall, racers will find plenty to love when taking part in Vigor Big Cottonwood Canyon Half Marathon – whether you’re running your first ever half marathon or simply looking to add another notch on your belt – you won’t be disappointed by what awaits here!
