The beautiful Solitude Mountain Resort is the race day staging area for the Vigor Big Cottonwood Canyon 13.1. (Half Marathon). Runners will enjoy waiting inside the ski school, (with 20 indoor restrooms) as they sip their choice of hot chocolate or coffee. From the staging area runners will take a short warm up walk to the start line at the Silver Fork Lodge and Restaurant. For the next 11 miles runners will experience the beauty and majesty of this amazing V-shaped canyon... from its many impressive rock forms to the sound of the raging Big Cottonwood Creek. Elevation for this course will start at 7700 feet and end at 4700 feet. Runners will get the chance to embrace a few flat spots and grades up to 7.5%. Once out of the canyon, runners will follow cones (through parking lot) and will be directed down a ramp. The path will lead runners under Wasatch Blvd and continue to hug the Big Cottonwood Creek for about 3/4 mile. While crossing at Big Cottonwood Canyon Road take note of the Historic Old Mill on your right. The remaining course is relatively flat as it continues along the Big Cottonwood Creek to the finish line at Old Mill One Building
At the finish line runners will be greeted with a finisher medal, and be able to enjoy food, music, and massage.
