6th Annual Sun Valley Half Marathon June 5, 2010

Break in your running shoes now and start training! The 6th Annual Sun Valley Half Marathon will take place in stunning Sun Valley on June 5, 2010 and will offer several new improvements, both to the course and the logistics of the race itself.

The start/finish area will move to the Sun Valley Pavilion lawn at Sun Valley Resort, allowing for a relaxing spot for spectators to watch as family and friends cross the finish line. While the bulk of the course will remain the same, some small changes will be made in order for runners to pass by the most scenic areas.
We are eliminating the 5K and 12K distances in order to focus solely on the Half Marathon. The popular Kid’s Mara-fun will continue with medals and prizes for all participants.
