South Mountain Half Marathon
South Mountain includes all of the paved trails runners have come to love in Draper. Namely the Porter Rockwell Trail and Canal Trail. The half marathon also includes the best parts of Draper City itself. The trails are absolutely beautiful at the end of April when Spring is at its strongest! This race will always be held the last Saturday of April.

We will have a photographer on the course as well as the finish line. Photos will be hosted on a server that uses bib recognition. We will NOT put a logo or watermark on your picture. Instead of ruining your picture with our logo we would rather rely on you telling your friends and family about our races!
Awards ceremony will be held when we have our winners. We will have a photo backdrop for pictures with friends and family. We will also have Cornhole, our favorite game! If you don't know what Cornhole is you are missing out. Click here to learn how to play.
Free parking, there is lots of parking at Wheadon Farm Park.
