Cedar City Half Marathon is one of the most spectacular downhill closed-canyon runs anywhere. This year's event is on Saturday, Sept. 9, 2017. Runners will be shuttled to the base of Cedar Breaks National Monument at Woods Ranch in Cedar Canyon. The 7 am start time and closed canyon allows runners to hear the sounds of Coal Creek and Aspen leaves quaking as they wind through eons of geologic formations to the mouth of Cedar Canyon. There sandstone pyramids mark the intersection of the Great Basin with the Great Rocky Mountain formations. Runners will transition from Highway 14 to the Coal Creek Trail System running along the creek and going under quaint road bridges to the finish line at Bicentennial Soccer Fields.
Before the race begins at Woods Ranch, there will be a truck that runners can place their CCHM Bags and other belongings into and they will be laid out north of the finish line refreshment tent. Please write your name and phone number on your bag. Please to not place anything in bags that you couldn't afford to not have when you arrive (keys, cellphones, wallets, etc.).
The Intermountain Cedar City Hospital Trail Run begins near the Coal Creek bridge at the mouth of Cedar Canyon. It is a 4.5K run along Coal Creek, crossing under streets all the way to the finish line at Bicentennial Soccer Complex.
Runners will find aid stations at approximately every 2 miles with cups of water and Powerade and blister supplies. Ham operators are at each station to report emergencies and ambulance will be stationed in canyon at turn off to Right-hand Canyon (approximately 6.8 mile-mark for runners).
The Cedar City Half is a perfect high-altitude trainer for those preparing for full marathons held a few weeks later, including the St. George marathon.
This 13.1 mile closed-canyon course is one of the nation's fastest as runners decend from 8,408 feet in elevation (Lat-Long: 37.594145 N, -112.912180 W). to 5,600 feet at the finish line in Cedar City near the Bicentennial Soccer Fields.
Bus loading will be at Bicentennial Park, next to the finish line by the soccer fields, and will take the runners up Cedar Canyon to the Start Line near Woods Ranch.
Clothing Bag Pickup will be near the finish line by the refreshments and award stand areas.
