_ The 2022 Not Your Grandma's Marathon:
Not Your Grandmas Marathon starts at 6am on August 28th at Rock Canyon Trailhead in Provo, UT. Participants will start at Rock Canyon Trailhead and run along the trail to Rock Canyon Campground. From Rock Canyon Campground they will make their way to the saddle of Cascade Mountain and drop down into Big Springs. From Big springs you’ll make your way down to South Fork Road. You will then turn right onto South Fork Road and continue until you reach South Fork Equestrian Trailhead Parking. Then you’ll turn around and run it back to where they started. Woohoo! You can view this Strava account for some more detail https://strava.app.link/D8vPPxRjehb. Why would you do this? Well. You could win a cash prize (TBD) and a golden cane. Plus, we think doing hard things is important for your mind. Trust us. We’ve run this race. You come out a different person when you finish.
Aid Stations will be provided at Rock Canyon Trail head, Cascade Saddle and Big Springs Pavillion 3:
We will accept drop bags. This can be any supplies you feel you may need at the half-way point of this race. You can give us these bags at the start of the race and we’ll take them over to Big Springs Pavillion 3 for you.
The half marathon course will start at the same location as the full marathoners and run the same course, but will end at the South Fork Equestrian Trailhead parking. As of right now, you will need to arrange your own ride to pick you up from that area.
