*Friday, July 10th from 3:30-7:00 pm at Trapnell Orthodontics, located at 187 East 400 South, Springville, UT 84663. Half Marathon runners are strongly encouraged to pick up their packets Friday to avoid delays on Saturday morning.

You will need to show a valid ID to pick up your packet. Packet Pickup will be done numerically. When you show up, you will look up your number by your last name and then proceed to the corresponding line for your race bib and chip. You will then pick up your race bag and race shirt. You may pick up packets for other runners if you show a photocopy of their ID.

Will Half Marathon runners be bussed to the start line?

YES! All half marathon runners MUST ride the buses as there is no parking at the start line. Buses will begin shuttling runners from the finish line location at Arts Park – 620 S. 1350 E. in Springville UT, beginning at  4:45 am with the final bus leaving at 5:25 am. Please arrive early as the last bus will not be able to fit everyone in it!  If you miss the busses you will NOT be able to drive to the start line as the Canyon will be closed to traffic near the top.

Early bird rewards:

We will have a prize giveaway to our early bird bus riders including free race entries to many of our upcoming races, giveaways from sponsors and more!  All you have to do to be eligible for one of these prizes is be on one of the first (3) buses on Saturday morning!

Will 5k runners also need to ride the bus?

No! The 5k route begins and ends at Arts Park in Springville. Do not get on the bus if you are running the 5k!

Where do I park the morning of the race?

Please park at the Springville High School parking lot and walk over to Arts Park for packet pick-up, half marathon bus pick-up, and for the 5k start. Please do not park along 900 South or 1350 East, as these roads are part of the half marathon and 5k racecourse. There will be no parking at Arts Park to improve runner safety in the driveway. Thanks for your understanding.

Will there be a clothing bag drop at the start line?

If I get injured or for any other reason can’t run after I have registered, can I have my money refunded or can I change categories?

Please read the instructions below!! This is the most common email we receive on race week, so help us out by trying to follow the options on the website before shooting us an email. Many Thanks!! Once your registration has been accepted all fees are non-refundable, however, you may transfer or your entry to another runner by race day.

In the event that severe weather does threaten the event, we have prepared some weather cancellation policies and guidelines. Runners’ safety is the most important thing and if any of the threatening weather conditions listed below are present the day of the event, the event may be delayed or canceled.  When weather conditions or other physical conditions present a danger to participants, race officials maintain the right to cancel the event.  Less threatening conditions may cause alterations of the course or the post-event festival to ensure participant, volunteer, and community safety.  Such conditions fall under the label “Acts of God,” and will not result in refunding of any race entry fees or future event credits.
