The Timp Half Marathon is a downhill course that begins at Tibble Fork Reservoir Parking Lot American Fork Canyon. As you run down the canyon you will experience the cool mountain air as well as the natural beauty of the canyon.

Once you exit the canyon you take a slight left and run on the Highland City Trails. These trails are paved and offer a pleasant running environment without any cars or traffic. Those trails will then lead you to the new Murdock Canal trails, which are also paved. These trails provide a scenic view through Highland and Cedar Hills.


You will finish on the track at the American Fork High School Track Stadium. As you enter the stadium you will be greeted by hundreds of screaming fans as you take home stretch to the finish line.


Run on the right side of the road on SR92. The outbound (right) lane will be closed to cars and bicycles. Runners are not allowed to run in the inbound (left) lane on SR92. All runners must be out of the canyon by 8:00 AM. Since this part of the race is 7.5 miles, you should average a 14 minute mile to make this cut off.  Please contact us for details. All runners still in the canyon at 7:50 AM time will be picked up and shuttled to the bottom. After exiting the canyon the course remains open until the last runner finishes.
