    Drop 13 Half Marathon

    Big Cottonwood Canyon, Big Cottonwood Canyon, Cottonwood Heights, UT 84121, USAView event
    About the event
    From the organiser

    The Drop13 Half Marathon is considered by many the fastest Half Marathon in Utah. We hate making assumptive statements like many other races. The one thing we can speak to with this race is factual information. The Drop13 Half Marathon is 100% downhill at Big Cottonwood Canyon during ideal conditions for running. The temps start at 50 degrees and reach the mid to low 70's. The race has over 3000 feet ot decline. The race is incredible with views of rivers, pine trees, and more. Unlike steeper courses this race has a gradual 3000 feet allowing runners to go fast and not be required to use their brakes as they descend.
