Jordan River Half Marathon
Jordan River Parkway Trail is a stunning 40 mile long trail. We have chosen some of the best miles to run on! You will run along this beautiful river for 13.1 miles taking in all of the great views it has to offer. Wetlands, parks, golf courses, ponds, bridges, this course has it all! Passing under and over bridges keeps you out of harms way offering a seamless trail experience that is hard to find on the asphalt these days.
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!
