The Summerlin Half Marathon course will start and finish at the beautiful JW Marriott Resort & Spa in the southeast parking lot. The first half mile is a slight incline that takes you out of the JW Marriott, up Canyon Run Drive to the entrance of the first park trail. You will then enjoy the next 2 miles of downhill.
The following 4 miles are a gradual uphill of approximately 600 feet. At approximately mile 5, you will encounter the Crestdale Bump! (this is a very short hill over the I-215 overpass)
The last 6.5 miles are a sweet downhill! But look out for Mt. Cottonwood at mile 10, another little bump coming out of the last park! At this point, kick in that extra energy reserve and push the last 3 miles downhill to cross the finish line… don’t forget to smile for the photographer!
