Saturday, July 26, 2014 • 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.
