Butterfield Canyon Half Marathon
The Butterfield Canyon Half Marathon starts and finishes at the Butterfield Trailhead Regional Park. This park rests in the shadow of Kennecott Mine and offers access to amazing single track trails that take you through dense foliage and offer incredible views of the surrounding mountains.
This area is absolutely beautiful and we know you will love running this course.
*Registration will open once all permits have been finalized. This is due to this being the first year holding this event and the park being brand new as well (estimated completion is December 2023). We want to be careful we aren't taking peoples money with empty promises.
