About Arches Half Marathon

Started in 2004, as a fall companion to the popular Canyonlands Half Marathon, this road half marathon might just be one of the most scenic races in the country. Arches Half Marathon travels through the well known "scenic alley," past the rising red rock formations of Fisher Towers and Castle Valley. For the new safety guidelines and precautions, please see the race guide
