Course for Drop13




 

 

The course for the Drop13 is considered by most who run it the fastest Half Marathon in Utah.
This course starts near Solitude Ski Resort up Big Cottonwood Canyon and runs down over
3000 feet of elevation for 13.1 miles to Old Mill Shopping Center. There are some courses that
may have a slight steeper decline however many racers feel ours is faster in that it does not
require you to press the breaks as you run down. The downhill is gradual and fairly consistent.
The time of the year has historically been great for this race as well. Nice cool temps with
highs in the low 70's for the day.

The 5K is the same route of the Half Marathon. It starts 3.1 Miles from the finish up the canyon
 and is a bused out start.

The aid stations are Mile 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 11.5 and finish. All have porta potties, water, Powerade
and select have GU Gels.
