BCC Marathon 2018 Coming Sept. 8
Posted on 08/07/2018

Cottonwood Heights welcomes the Revel Big Cottonwood Canyon Marathon and Half Marathon to our city. This is the sixth year that Cottonwood Heights has hosted this popular event that draws participants from around Utah and the country.

The race will start early in the morning on Saturday, Sept. 8. We invite all to come out to support the runners and cheer them on to the finish line.

To accommodate this large event, no one will be allowed to cross Fort Union Boulevard from the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon all the way to Union Park Avenue. Some traffic will be allowed east and west along Fort Union Boulevard, but no traffic or pedestrians will be allowed to cross north or south along the race route until it is finished. We repeat, you will not be able to cross Fort Union Boulevard during the race.

Wasatch Boulevard will be closed between Fort Union Boulevard and 4500 South during the race. See map for race route details (below).

If you have plans that don’t include participation in the race, either as a runner or a spectator, please plan ahead and add extra travel time to your schedule.

The Wasatch Boulevard/Fort Union intersection should be open by approximately 11 a.m. Most runners are expected to complete the race by 1 p.m., and CHPD will open parts of Fort Union Boulevard as the race winds down.

Suggested detour routes for travelers on both sides of Fort Union are: For those on the north side, the best route is to take I-215 to Union Park. For those on the south side, Creek Road or 9400 South may be the best option.

The city appreciates your patience as we host several thousand visitors to our city.

More race information will be available through our Facebook and Twitter channels.
