My Race the Baker's Dozen Half Marathon Coming Up Soon!

One of my favorite adventures of the year is being the race director of the Baker's Dozen Half Marathon each December in southern Utah. This year the race is being held on 12/13/14. (Yep, that date was chosen on purpose.)

The Baker's Dozen Half Marathon is your opportunity to combine some of the best things in life: 1) Friends,2) Running, and 3) Sugar! 

The race is a social, fun event where runners race a 3.25 mile loop course allowing them to interact with other runners during the whole race. Half marathoners will run the loop four times and have the incredible fortune of passing the aid station (affectionately known as the "Sugar Shack") at the end of every loop.

The medal is ENORMOUS and seriously amazing. have to earn it. Not only do you run 13 miles, but to earn a medal you must also consume a treat each time you pass the Sugar Shack (3 times total). Volunteers will verify your gluttony, so don't register for the race if you don't plan to eat some calories. 

The Sugar Shack will include all the foods you would expect to find in heaven including donuts, gourmet cupcakes, scrumptious cookies, and Twinkies. So let the training begin! (And by "training" we mean "Bring on the maple bars!")

If by chance you want to take a little vacation to southern Utah next month to run the greatest half marathon this side of the Hostess factory, you can get more info about the race and register at or visit the race Facebook page HERE

I'd love to see you there!


  1. One of these days I'm going to make it down there for this race!

  2. I really don't think I could eat any of that - maybe add a beef jerky division?

  3. It sounds like a whole heap of fun. Wish America wasn't quite so far away.
