Cedar City Half Marathon

Cedar City Half Marathon CanyonThe Cedar City Half Marathon run takes places each year in September. The next race will be Saturday, September 8th, 2018 at 7:00 am. The race starts at Woods Ranch, 11 miles up Cedar Canyon and ends at Bicentennial Park. This course is one of the nation’s fastest.  The full course has total road closure. The Cedar City Half Marathon is a perfect high-altitude trainer for those preparing for full marathons. There is also a 5K race in conjunction with the half marathon, hosted by Intermountain Health Care Valley View Medical Center.

At approximately mile five, the course begins to flatten out some and continues in a more gradual decent – winding its way along the banks of Coal Creek. At mile 10, after passing the Red Hill runners take a soft left turn off of US-14 across the footbridge to the Canyon Trail. A well-maintained, paved running and walking trail lined with willows and shaded by cottonwood trees. The trail continues through the Canyon Park area where runners are greeted by spectators who flank the grass-lined trail. Leaving Canyon Park, competitors transition back on to US-14 for just a moment as they turn right on to Highland Drive and through a neighborhood that sits at the base of the Red Hill. Making an easy left off of Highland the course winds around the Cedar Canyon baseball complex and past the Veterans Memorial Park. Runners then head north under Main Street and end at Bicentennial Park. You will often hear your name announced to the crowd as you finish the race.

Packet pickup for the Cedar City Half Marathon & the IHC VVMC 5K races is scheduled for Friday before the race from 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm and on Saturday, the day of the race, from 5:30 am to 6:15 am. Packet pickup will be held at the Aquatic Center.

Zombie Apocalypse 5K

Cedar City Zombie Apocalypse 5K

Cedar City Zombie Apocalypse 5K Cedar City, UT, United States – The very first Cedar City Zombie Apocalypse 5K is a 3.1… – October 8, 2016


The very first Cedar City Zombie Apocalypse 5K is a 3.1 mile run on the south end of Cedar City. This 5K run is designed for both the runner and non-runner.


zombie-apocalypse-5k-cedar-cityThe Story: Cedar City has been overrun with zombies. However, there is hope. Two camps remain in seperate safe zones. However, when you get to one, you find out it has been overrun with zombies. It is now up to you to survive, you must run 3.1 miles from one camp to another without becoming zombie food.

The Objective: Run, climb, crawl, sprint, and use your wits to get from one camp to another 3.1 miles away without losing all of your flags. If you do, you survived the zombie apocalypse…for now. If you don’t, you become a zombie yourself. But not to worry, both the survivor and the nonsurvivor will get a finishers prize.

The Participant: There are two types of participants, the first is the runner. The second is a zombie. Zombies will provide their own clothing, however torn and trashed they may be (must be modest), we will provide the make-up. Professional and student make-up artists will “zombify” the zombie participants.

Village: “Villages” consist of at least three no more than five runners. Each “village” will come up with a name, and develop a costume. The “village” with the best costume and team name, decided by appointed judges, will receive a prize (yet to be determined, but most likely a gift card).

Check-In: Participant Check-in will take place at the Cedar City Aquatic Center (2090 W Royal Hunte Drive). Beginning at 7:30 AM. If you signed up to be a Zombie, you must show up at the Aquatic Center by 6 AM to receive your make-up. Make-up artists from Evans Hairstyling College are “zombifying” all the zombies. From there, you will then take your specified place on the course.




If you have signed up to be a “Zombie”, you must arrive at the starting line at 6 AM for make-up. From there, you will be assigned to a specific location on the course. Please keep in mind that you are limited in your space of chasing down the “Survivor”. You can only chase the “survivor” for a length of about 25 yards. YOU ARE ONLY ALLOWED TO TAKE ONE FLAG PER RUNNER. Further, as a Zombie you are expected to be on the course for the entirety of the event.


  1. Under no circumstances should the “Survivor” and the “Zombie” participant be allowed to engage in physical contact with each other. The only physcial contact that will be tolerated will be the “Zombie” participant reaching for the “Survivor’s” flag. If you are caught pushing, shoving, fighting, or any other physical altercation of any kind, both participants will be removed from the race immediatly and no refunds or transfers will be allowed.
  2. Place your flags in the manner of flag football (two on the side one in the back). Zombies will be trying to grab them and to minimize the chance that you don’t get touched in places you don’t want to follow this rule!
  3. If necessary, sacrifice your friends and family to save your life. You don’t need to outrun everyone, just the person behind you.
  4. Have fun! This race is not competetive at all, it is all in the name of having a good time. So make it one for yourself and everyone involved.


The proposed course will start at Cedar Middle School and end there. Runners sprint from the Cedar Middle School field where they must endure a rocky, and fairly steep decent down to the trail. From there runners will run along the trail avoiding zombies. Eventually, they will make a left turn, cross the street onto a livestock trail. This trail at first is a steep climb, but evens out and begins to descend towards Home Depot. Runners must then cross another street make their way to the Sheep Tunnel. The Sheep Tunnel was built to accomodate livestock, but is now rarely used to since there are other alternative means to move livestock. Runners must enter the dark narrow sheep tunnel and try not to get their flags taken as they encounter zombie after zombie. If runners manage to survive, they come out the opposite end and finish at Cedar Middle School. For a reference of the map, view it here. 

**Please note: Course is steep and rocky in some areas and is subject to change


Aid stations will be availabe throughout the course. Although, we encourage the participants to stay hydrated, we ask that participants do not linger at the aid stations for very long. While at the aid stations, Zombies are not allowed to grab any flags, but the longer the participant waits the more likely zombies are to notice and grab a flag as the participant leaves the aid station. In other words, DRINK AT YOUR OWN RISK.


Spectators are encouraged to view the race. However, spectators are only allowed at the starting and finish line (Park Discovery 2077 W Royal Hunte Drive).
