Corner Canyon Marathon & Relay
This Relay has 8 sections total with each averaging 3 miles. Teams will have 4 runners, each runner runs 2 sections. Each section varies from rolling, downhill, to climbing. It is up to the team to decide who runs the section!
The Marathon uses the same course making it a beautiful out and back that uses the best trails Corner Canyon has to offer.
Corner Canyon is a favorite to many runners along the Wasatch Front. A vast network of beautiful trails truly make Corner Canyon unique. This same network of trails is what will make this race a great relay. We wanted everybody to be able to experience all that Corner Canyon has to offer and we feel this is the way to do it. This relay uses almost every trail Corner Canyon has to offer, our personal favorites are the all new foot traffic only trails, Casper and Phantom! This race will always be held the Saturday before Labor Day weekend.
We were able to hold our last two races in 2020 and both were a success in terms of safety and managing covid precautions. Our races are smaller in size due to taking place on the trails and we are confident we can safely hold these events in 2021.
We will always put our runners first. We will do whatever we can to make this race happen while keeping the runners safe. If we are unable to do this runners will be issued credits or refunds. We are optimistic though and really hope with the vaccine and safety measures we will begin beating this virus!
