About Vacation Races

National Park Race Series

Our Events

Vacation Races was founded in 2012 when we launched registration for the Inaugural Zion Half Marathon. Since then, we’ve added five more races to our calendar, each centered around a different National Park. Our goal is to put on beautiful half marathons and get people to visit and enjoy our amazing national parks. Learn about our convenient refund options, excellent military pricing, and innovative cup-less policy on each of our race websites.

You can be a part of the global running community whether you are physically running by yourself or you are meeting up with other local runners to participate in these events.
