Lake Powell Half Marathon

October 20th, 2018  |  Page, AZ

Run to the lake with one of our most scenic courses, finishing right at Lake Powell in the gorgeous Glen Canyon Recreation Area!

The Course

The Lake Powell Half Marathon begins at the John C. Page Park in the town of Page, AZ. The first 3 miles circles a portion of the town before getting onto the Page Rim Trail. This short trail section allows for stunning views of rock formations and glimpses of Lake Powell! Runners will return to pavement before heading downhill toward the bridge that crosses over Glen Canyon Dam. The course then heads north into the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area to finish at the Stateline Boat Ramp within the park's boundaries.
*Note: Due to the rough slick rock portions of this course, strollers are not allowed.


Bib & Packet Pickup

You have a couple of options for picking up your bib and race packet including: at the Race Expo, at the Start Line, or mailed to you.

The race expo will be held at the John C. Page Park in Page, AZ. More details about the expo coming soon.


Travel & Lodging

Getting Here
Las Vegas International Airport is about 4 hrs from Page​, AZ.  Arizona and Nevada are in different time zones, so please take this into account when planning your trip. 

A quick scenic detour would be to drive through Zion National Park on Hwy 9 to Hwy 89, then south to Kanab and east to Page. (This would add about an hour of driving time.) 

It is about 4 1/2 hours from Phoenix to Page, but the south rim of the Grand Canyon is next to this route, making it easy to plan a side trip.

Salt Lake City is 5 hrs and 45 min, but this route passes within 15 minutes of the entrances into both Bryce Canyon and Zion national parks along highway 89, making it convenient to detour and see these places.


​Lodging
There are lots of great options when considering where to stay when running this race. Page is full of hotels that are all within walking distance to the start line of the race. There are also great options inside the park. The NPS site has lots of camping info. Our favorite is camping right on the beach at Lone Rock. There are also campsites near the marina and the finish line!
