About This Activity

If you are up for a challenging half marathon course, this race is for you. This all-road course begins at beautiful Eden Park in Ogden Valley, Utah, winding its way through pines and rocky crags to the top of Powder Mountain ski resort. The views are stunning!  The trauma to muscles and joints is numbing! This is an out and back course. Over 2600' of elevation gain in the first 4 miles. While the last 9 miles are all down hill, its not an easy coast. The average grade on Powder Mountain Road is more than 12% with sections up to 16%!  You will finish with a severe case of rubber legs. But sit down and kick those legs out and enjoy a half pound breakfast burrito as awesome as the race!  Awards, raffles and prizes conclude this one of a kind race.
