Corner Canyon Half Marathon

Draper, UT 1/2 Marathon, 12K, 5K

Registration closes: Fri, Jun 12 @ 9:59PM

Why should I sign up for this race?

Beautiful course, free breakfast, good company, race photos, custom locally made finisher medal and awards, friendly competition, performance t-shirt, and swag. What more could you want? Really if you can think of something let us know and we will try to get it!

Corner Canyon is a favorite to many runners along the Wasatch Front. A vast network of trails truly makes Corner Canyon unique. This course will be packed with beautiful green scenery at every turn. The race puts all distances on the famous Bonneville Shoreline Trail and the longer distances get to enjoy Annes Trail, Clarks Trail, and the amazing Ghost Falls Trail system. This course is rolling with several climbs. Whether you plan on running the course or walking the course, Corner Canyon will have you finish wanting more.

Please check out the website for all the info you will need including course maps. Ask us if you have any questions, Happy Trails!

5k

The 5k takes you up lower Corner Canyon to an extremely scenic loop on the Burnham hiking only trail. Burnham trail runs along a beautiful stream before crossing over it and climbing up to an amazing vista. You will merge with the other distances to finish!

3.1 miles and +502 ft elevation total
64% Single Track Trail, 31% Dirt Road, 5% Paved Trail

*There will be Trail Marshals positioned at major intersections to prevent you from getting lost or cutting!

No cutoff time, we want everyone finishing even if it means walking.

12k

The 12k follows the same course as the Half Marathon but after reaching Coyote Hollow you branch off at Clark's Trail and begin the climb to the top of the canyon with rewarding views along the way.

Once at the top you reach the aid station at Peakview Trailhead. Descend down the Casper and Phantom Trails where you will encounter dense trees that make for a beautiful trail run.

After you climb up to the Ghost Falls Trailhead you descend back down the canyon to Ghost Falls. The section of trail leading to Ghost Falls is my favorite in the canyon, it is amazing! After Ghost Falls you have 2.5 more miles back to the finish through a variety of scenic trails.

Start to Aid 1 - 3.3 miles and +1,237/-45 ft elevation (Has bathrooms)

Aid 1 to Finish - 4.2 miles and +168/-1,308 ft elevation

Half Marathon

The half marathon follows the same course as the 12k but after reaching Coyote Hollow continues on the Bonneville Shoreline Trail (BST). You follow the BST taking in great views of Draper City until you reach the Lexie and Ethan Trail. This trail is a gentle climb up to Potato Hill with unique scenery at every turn.

After arriving at Potato Hill Aid Station you will depart for Annes Trail. Once you reach the junction for Lupine Meadows you take it and begin a 2 mile loop. Lupine Meadows is a new foot traffic only trail and it offers incredible views! After you leave the loop you will get back on Annes Trail and head towards Peakview. 

Once at the top you reach the aid station at Peakview Trailhead. Descend down the Casper and Phantom foot traffic only Trails where you will encounter dense trees that make for a beautiful trail run.

After you climb up to Ghost Falls Trailhead you descend back down the canyon to Ghost Falls. The section of trail leading to Ghost Falls is my favorite in the canyon, it is amazing! After Ghost Falls you have 2.7 more miles back to the finis.
