Deer Creek Half Marathon
The Deer Creek Half Marathon starts and finishes in the Wasatch State Park. An amazing area home to some of Utah's most incredible trails. The majority of this race is run along the beautiful Deer Creek Reservoir.
This trail run is very beginner friendly for anyone deciding they want to give trail running a try. However, the rolling hills will still present a challenge for even the experienced runners looking to push themselves!
