Big changes are coming to the AF Canyon Run Against Cancer in 2016

December 29 — AMERICAN FORK — Due to construction taking place at Tibble Fork Reservoir in AF Canyon (our traditional starting location) the 2016 race will have a new start venue with a modified course and limited spots for the half marathon.

New start venue for 2016

Construction at Tibble Fork Reservoir will be in full swing come race day, June 25. Because of this we will start the 2016 half marathon in the Pine Hollow parking lot (pictured below) in AF Canyon.

Half Marathon Spots Will Be Limited

The Pine Hollow starting location is significantly smaller than Tibble Fork and will therefore limit us to 1,000 spots for the 2016 half marathon. These spots will be sold on a first come, first served basis, with registration opening January 4, 2016. We anticipate these spots will sell out quickly.

Introducing a 10K

We are excited to announce that due to the limited number of entries into our half marathon we will be adding a 10K to accommodate more runners to help us fight cancer.

New Finish Venue

To accommodate all of these new changes we have a new finish venue at Art Dye park in American Fork. If you are not already familiar with Art Dye Park, we're sure this beautiful and spacious park will 'wow' you as you cross the finish line.

With new locations comes new race routes. Check out the new race routes for each venue below.
