Saturday, August 6, 2016 • Huntington, Utah On August 6, 2007 a collapse at the Crandall Canyon Mine trapped six miners. Ten days later on August 16, 2007 a second collapse killed 3 rescuers and injured numerous others. This event is in their memory. The first Crandall Canyon Memorial Run took place on August 1, 2009. The race takes place on a National Scenic Byway. The half marathon starts at the northwest corner of Cleveland Reservoir, running past Electric Lake and following world class fly fishing areas of the beautiful Huntington River. The 10k and 5k start along the river and all 3 races finish at the entrance to the Crandall Canyon Mine road. This is a beautiful, fast down-hill course and is the highest 1/2 marathon in Utah, starting at 8800 feet (correct us if we’re wrong – we can’t find a higher race) Runners are encouraged to visit the monument at the mine entrance just up the canyon from the finish line as well as the monument in Huntington City.
Packet pickup will be at the Heroes Among Us memorial plaque. In years past, pickup has been at the Huntington City Park in past years. This is a new change this year. The Heroes is located by the Huntington Cemetery and Canyon View Junior High School in Huntington, Utah. The address to the Junior High School is 550 North 400 West Huntington, Utah. The pickup will allow runners to view the memorial and honor the miners. Please be courteous when parking your vehicle, especially if you park in the Cemetery. Pickup will be the morning of the race at 5:15 AM. Runners will be bused to the start of each race and back to the Heroes Among Us memorial after the races. Buses IMPORTANT NOTE: In order to increase the comfort of the runners and decrease traffic on the course, the buses will depart at 6:15 am. This puts packet pick up starting at 5:15 AM at the Heroes Among Us memorial. All else will proceed as scheduled. Races will begin as soon as the buses arrive at each start line (Half marathon first, 10k second, then 5k).
