The Half Marathon starts off with a loop around Lone Peak Park and drops into Dimple Dell. You immediately pop back out for a quick detour on the Porter Rockwell Trail which takes you past the Sandy Dog Park. Then you take the Dimple Dell Loop Trail through a nice part of the canyon which includes my favorite bridge and under an awesome tunnel. From there you follow the scenic Dry Creek Trail all the way to Dimple Dell Aid Station.
After you leave the station you will begin your climb out of Dimple Dell surrounded by stunning views the whole way. You top out to a beautiful vista at Sunrise Point. You then make your way along the ridge to Granite Park Aid Station.
You leave on the Rim Trail offering great views and then drop back down into Dimple Dell. You meet up with a wood chipped trail that is amazing to run on until you come to the Wrangler Aid Station. From there it is a straight shot on the main Dimple Dell Trail back to Lone Peak Park where you will finish!
