Half Marathon Course Summary
This is a GREAT course! Possibly our prettiest ever!
It’s very scenic and the finish line has some amazing views of the Teton range! You don’t want to miss out on running this.
We'll start the race in Wilson, WY by running along Teton Pass Hwy (Hwy 22) for a little over a mile and then jumping onto a jogging trail. We'll stay on this beautiful and flat paved trail until we cross a pedestrian bridge over the Snake River. After some more road running, the course turns to a peaceful well-packed dirt road before finishing at the golf course!
Grand Teton 5K
We are excited to be offering a 5K race now! In addition to the half marathon, a 5 kilometer race will take place on Friday evening, June 4th at 6:00 pm.
This is a beautiful course to give you a chance to work your legs out and enjoy a run with friends and family. The race begins from the expo location and runs a clockwise loop around part of the Stilson Ranch!
Doubles & Quadruple
TWO WEEKENDS - TWO PARKS!
If you aren't familiar with our events that have 5K distances in addition to a half marathon, runners can sign up for both and earn extra swag and an extra medal. We call these "doubles". The Grand Teton and Yellowstone events will take place on back-to-back weekends in June!
With two half marathons and two 5K races, we have some exciting news. We are introducing a new QUADRUPLE- the Grand Quad! That's signing up and running all 4 events. If you sign up for the quadruple you are essentially doing the Grand Teton Half & 5K and the Yellowstone Half & 5K. Runners get some Grand Quad swag, all the doubles medals, plus the Quadruple medal- That's 8 medals total!
Here are all the options:
Grand Teton Half Marathon & Grand Teton 5K
Runners earn: Moose Double swag + 2 finisher medals (1 for each race) + 1 Moose Double medal
Yellowstone Half Marathon & Yellowstone 5K
Runners earn: Bison Double swag + 2 finisher medals (1 for each race) + 1 Bison Double medal
Grand Teton Half Marathon & Yellowstone Half Marathon
Runners earn: Grizzly Double swag + 2 finisher medals (1 for each race) + 1 Grizzly Double medal
Grand Teton Half Marathon, Grand Teton 5K, Yellowstone Half Marathon, & Yellowstone 5K
Runners earn: Grand Quad swag + 4 finisher medals (1 for each race) + 1 Moose Double medal + 1 Bison Double medal + 1 Grizzly Double medal + 1 Grand Quad medal = 8 medals!
Note: If you've run with us in the past, you may recall the Caldera Triple. With the new Grand Teton 5K and the quadruple added, we've retired the Caldera Triple for now.
If you've ever dreamt of seeing the Tetons, take this chance!
The Tetons have inspired countless hikers, backpackers, mountaineers, and explorers throughout history. John Wayne's film acting debut The Big Trail was filmed here in 1930 as well as the western classic Shane (1953). Grand Teton National Park contains over 200 miles of trails to discover including one that American Indians and fur trappers may have used in the 1820s. You could even paddle a canoe or raft the world famous Snake River.
