CAPPED AT 500! Join us on Saturday November 2nd for the Grand Canyon Trail Half Marathon in the beautiful Kaibab National Forest, just south of the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. Souvenir race coaster-medallion, beautiful long-sleeve shirt, race goodies, and more to commemorate your iconic journey through the trails near the South Rim. Walk or run a half-marathon, 5k, or the family mile -- then visit the America's greatest attraction, the Grand Canyon.
The Half-Marathon has been named the Road Runners Club of America Arizona State Half-Marathon Championship, with awards to top finishers.
The 13.1 mile trail loops through the beautiful forest and high desert of the Kaibab National Forest. The course does not descend into the Grand Canyon, but all race participants can purchase a National Park Service pass and from the race site easily enter into the Grand Canyon National Park.
Packet Pickup for your giveaway shirt, race number and any purchased souvenir items is Friday night, November 1st and Saturday morning. We'll let you know the exact locations and times!
The Grand Canyon Trail Half Marathon is a joint partnership between the Grand Canyon Chamber of Commerce and Run Tucson, the premier local event directing company in Arizona and by Randy Accetta, an RRCA-Certified Race Director.
