The Hobble Creek Half Marathon was started by two elite runners and USATF members in 1994 with a vision to create a course that would be both a record breaker and a great tune-up for the St. George Marathon. They chose a beautiful route that starts up the right fork of Hobble Creek Canyon close to Springville, Utah, the course snakes down the canyon, follows the local river trail, and continues on the road next to Hobble Creek.

The race now strives to be Utah's premier 1/2 Marathon event. The course is beautiful and fast with rolling hills and is a great place to set a PR (Personal Record) or tune up for a fall marathon. The race is known for its fast course, flowers for women, and Elite 100 medals.
