Course Deets!

½ Marathon

13.1 miles

Life is short... running makes it seem longer…
- Baron Hansen

This course is fast. The first 1/2 of the race is very fast and levels out when you arrive into Draper City.  

The start of Porters Half is at the mouth of Little Cottonwood Canyon at 5,394 feet above sea level.

From there, runners head downhill winding through neighborhoods down a steep descent onto beautiful Dimple Dell Road, following this road into the city of Draper. In Draper, participants will run on beautiful Porter Rockwell Trail, while looping portions of the city. Runners will then head north along historic Fort Street finishing at Draper Park at 4,528 feet. A total decrease of 866 ft. There are a few small rollers to keep you honest!

Aid stations will be at every mile- mile and a ½  starting at mile 2. Each aid station will have water, electrolyte replacement, high fives and music. Bring it babies!

10k course

6.2 miles

Life is short... running makes it seem longer…
- Baron Hansen

The 10k starts near Draper Park off of Boulter lane. Runners will be shuttled to the starting line to avoid the long walk. The course loops through neighborhoods and merges with the half marathon route. Runners will follow the same course as the half marathoners, winding their way through beautiful Draper City.

* The course will be CLEARLY marked with volunteers, route arrow signs, and markings in the road.  Police will be assisting at all major intersections.

Aid stations will be at every mile. Each aid station will have water, electrolyte replacement, high fives and music. Bring it babies!
