Thanksgiving Point Half Marathon Fees Go Up March 1

By February 26, 2013

Follow me on:

Spring is just around the corner, and I know my runner friends are dreaming of the day when they can get back to training outdoors in good weather. One of Utah's most popular spring running events is the Thanksgiving Point Half Marathon, 5K and Fun Run, coming up April 27, 2013. The half marathon passes through Thanksgiving Point's spectacular gardens during the annual Tulip Festival, with thousands of colorful tulips in bloom along the route. It's a good idea to sign up now, because fees will increase on Friday, March 1.

Registration Deadlines

Half Marathon


Kids 1-Mile Run

Through Feb. 28




March 1-31




April 1-14 (late registration)




Every race finisher receives a custom finisher's medal and a race shirt. In addition, each registered participant will receive two free day passes to Thanksgiving Point venues: The Museum of Ancient Life, Thanksgiving Point Gardens, and Farm Country.

Proceeds from the event will go to support the Museum of Natural Curiosity, a new children's museum at Thanksgiving Point, which is scheduled to open in the spring of 2014.
