Cancelled Event

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED

COVID-19

Covid-19 Update 6/2 - Bonneville Half Marathon has been cancelled despite our efforts to ensure social distancing and guidelines set out by the state. Draper City feels it is too risky due to covid 19 and high trail usage. We disagree with this completely but ultimately there is nothing we can do about it that we haven’t already tried. Sorry everyone we did our best!

We also want to do our best at taking care of you and we have come up with the options below in order to do so. Our hope is that you will support us in future races and will remember we always want to put our runners first.

#1. Receive a refund for your registration. We will mail you a check so if your address on Ultrasignup is not correct please let us know. If you are on the waitlist we will simply remove you and your card will not be charged. Not a lot of races are offering a refund like this because the truth is we and all race organizers are losing quite a bit of money on these events being cancelled. We hope this will help create loyal customers who know we put runners first and our biggest concern is offering a quality race and experience. Word of mouth is the best way we will grow so share us with your friends and family!

#2. Credit for any race this year or next. Currently things are looking good for the Jordan River Half Marathon on September 26th (road race) and the Dimple Dell Half Marathon on October 10th (trail race). We will send a code that can be used to register for any race free of fees or cost. Please note that future races may still be cancelled. This pandemic and how each City is handling it is unprecedented and we are in the back seat just holding on trying to stay positive.

#3. Donate your registration to Happy Trails Running. We obviously could use the money to recover lost costs from this virus but don’t let us guilt trip you because we know a lot of people are hurting financially right now due to the economy spraining an ankle. We just hope next year we are back bigger than ever and all of our runners return for some amazing trails!

If you choose option 2 or 3 and are on the waitlist you will need to accept an invite we send out and your card will be charged at that time. We will give all runners until July 11th to decide what they would like to do.

Again just want to apologize for any inconvenience this has caused. I know many of you have been training hard, had travel plans, or just wanted to be able to run during these crazy times. I hope these options are acceptable and you remember us in the future. We want our races to be something runners look forward to every year. Thank you!

Why should I sign up for this race?

Beautiful course, food, 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!

The Bonneville Shoreline Trail spans several cities. This course has you running on the Sandy and Draper sections. From breathtaking vistas to an amazing suspension bridge this course will not disappoint. To finish it all off a beautiful loop in Corner Canyon using the entire Hoof N Boot trail up to Peak View Trailhead. You make your way back using the Ghost Falls trail system, the best Corner Canyon has to offer!  This race will always be held the second Saturday of July.

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