South Mountain Half Marathon
South Mountain Half Marathon runs along the incredible Jordan River Parkway. This race will focus on the Southern half of this amazing trail system and takes you past parks, Thanksgiving Point, and finally up to the foothills of South Mountain itself. The trail is absolutely beautiful at the end of April when Spring is at its strongest! This race will always be held the last Saturday of April.
Due to Covid this race has had its location changed! This means a new course that we are extremely happy with. We plan to use venue and course going forward with the South Mountain Half Marathon. See below for details on the new Lehi course. Please check your email if you are already registered for a list of options sent to you regarding these changes!
