Canyon Half Marathon

Canyon Half Marathon

Oct 8th 20228 am start time

Jacksonville State University and the Little River Canyon Center is pleased to announce the 9th annual half marathon set to be held on Saturday, October 8th, 2022.

Possibly one of the most scenic half marathons in the country, the certified course loops 13.1 miles on paved roads, starting and ending at the Little River Canyon Center.

Starting at 8:00 am, the first 5 miles of the run will follow the Little River Canyon National Preserve's scenic and sometimes challenging rim of the canyon, as the remainder winds through gently rolling farm country including Randy Owen Drive and his famous Tennessee River Music Hereford and Angus cattle ranch. Randy and Kelly Owen are often on hand at the 6 and 8 mile water station pitching Fig Newtons, energy GU and drinks.

Awards ceremony to follow.
