It's our tenth year running at Zion and our tenth year as a company. Zion is the backyard for many of our staff, so this national park holds an extra special place in our hearts. Our roots run deep here and we can't wait to share this incredible landscape with you.
As you finalize your training and wrap-up the physical elements of preparing for this half marathon, we ask that you also prepare your travel and logistics. We've put together a race guide to help you know what to expect on race weekend.
For all of the race details, please check out the Race Guide and podcast. The podcast is an audio version of the race guide and provides the same great information in a fun, lively one-hour listen. Pop it on while you run errands, fold laundry, or whatever mundane task you need to spice up! The standard digital race guide will allow you to see where the expo is, where to park, etc. We recommend that you pay attention to these pages:
- Page 2-3: Race Expo + Bib Pick-up
- Page 4-5: Race Details
- Page 5: Map + Elevation
- Page 6: Parking + Spectator Info
On race day, you may notice some people with different markings on their bib. If you look at the special indication area of the bib, you may see our Wander Project logo (a small teal circle in the top right corner), they are running as part of our Charity Bib Program.
Charity Bib athletes fundraise for their race registration. They have the option of fundraising for one of our official partners, or they can fundraise for a cause of their choice. It's a great way to add a little extra "oomph" to your running journey and it helps a wide variety of deserving causes.

In and around Zion National Park, archaeological evidence is found of Native Americans from the Archaic culture, from Ancestral Puebloan (Anasazi) and Fremont cultures, and most recently from Southern Paiute culture. The Paiute called this place Mukuntuweap. Mukkuntuweap is believed to mean “straight canyon” or “straight river,” though there is also record that the Paiute more frequently referred to the canyon as “Loogoon” which means “quiver of arrows”).
Today a hike to Zion Canyon Overlook may give you a glimpse of this “straight canyon” that inspired the name.
