Thanks to Everyone for a Great Canyonlands Half Marathon!!

The 35th Annual Canyonlands Half Marathon was a screaming success!!!  Thank you so much to all the runners, sponsors, volunteers, staff, and supporters who made this event possible.  Congratulations to Evan North of Louisville, Co, three time men’s overall winner with a time of 1:09:45; and Kristen Ogden of Provo, over all women’s winner with a time of 1:20:46.  
After a hail storm greeted participants and complicated the set up of the race, the sun shone brightly and the cool weather kept everyone in great spirits.  Thanks so much to our race sponsors: Clif Bar, Gatorade, Sore No More, The Moab Valley Inn, Moab Adventure Center, and The Eastern Utah Community Credit Union.

This year we had over 5,100 registrants coming into the Expo on Friday.  62% of those runners were from Utah and 25% came from Colorado.  We had people from 47 states, and on Saturday Afternoon nearly 15,000 racers, supporters, and spectators came together to cheer each other on and check out all the great vendors, music, and entertainment at Swanny Park.  Thank you all for making the 2010 Canyonlands Half Marathon safe, fun, and successful.  Time to start getting ready for The Other Half!

  1. Thanks to those FABULOUS drummers at the mouth of the canyon - what a fantastic idea! We could hear them several miles up the canyon and it was delightful to finally reach them - please let them know how much they were enjoyed!
