Registration for this popular event is limited to 2,500 runners due to our commitment to minimize the impact in this beautiful area and to provide our guests with a quality destination running experience. The race sells out fast, so please plan to organize your teams and travel schedule early. The minimum age requirement for the half marathon is 12 years. This course is very scenic and easy to medium difficulty, with gentle rolling terrain on backcountry roads.

- NO roller blades, skateboards, animals or bicycles on course without permission. Baby strollers designed for runners are permitted but must begin at the back of the starting line.
