Canyon Half Marathon

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 JSU’s 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.

Date: Saturday, October 14th, 2023

Time: 8:00 a.m.

Where: JSU’s Little River Canyon Center (within 10 miles of DeSoto State Park)
