Provo Halloween Half Marathon set to spring into step

October 26, 2012 by  

The ‘Provo Halloween Half Marathon’ is the largest race of its kind in Utah County and the second biggest half marathon in all of Utah. During this year’s run, which takes place tomorrow, half marathon participants are encouraged to wear a costume and bring a friend.

This is an excellent time of year to take part in a run, seeing as the temperatures have dropped. The elevation will drop by 2,000 feet, so runners will be testing their personal best. The Halloween half marathon is capped at 4,000 runners, while there is also a full marathon offered, capped at 750 runners.

All runners will arrive at the University Mall in Orem, on the north side, and then will be transported from the mall to where the race begins. The race will take place on the Alpine Loop, which is a full 20 miles of paved road. Buses will begin picking up passengers at 5:00 am and all runners must be at the bus stop before 6:30 am. After the race, shuttle buses will return runners to the mall.

Flyer printing, poster printing, and banner printing may have been used to advertise and promote this marathon to residents of the community and surrounding communities. Registration cost is $75 per person.

The Provo Halloween Half Marathon gets off and running tomorrow, October 27, on the Alpine Loop located on Highway 92 in Provo, Utah. Participants are requested not park in Costco or the Theatre parking areas. For additional details, please visit the Utah Valley website.
