2019 PCTS Half Marathon Deferral Announcement

We apologize again for the unexpected late cancellation of the Park City Series Half Marathon. As per our Special Event Permit, Park City Municipal and the Mountain Trails Foundation collectively made a decision Friday night to deny trail access to preserve and protect the trails from damage following the heavy rain and predicted cold temperatures.

In light of this decision, and in an effort to make the best of an unfortunate situation, PCTS is offering a deferral program for those who were registered for the 2019 Half Marathon.

You will be able to pick one of the following options:
Deferral into the 2020 PCTS Half Marathon OR
Deferral into the 2020 PCTS 10 Miler (formerly 15K) OR
20% off of the 2020 PCTS Trail Series entry. a total savings of $79
Currently the PCTS staff is working hard to finalize 2020 dates and permits. This should be complete by December 1st, 2019. The PCTS website and registration links will then be updated with the correct information. At that time, all 2019 half marathon participants will be emailed instructions on how to claim their deferment choice for the 2020 season.
Thanks for your patience and understanding as the PCTS event staff has worked hard over the last 24 hours to verify workable solution.


Sign-up for all four races!

*PCTS Virtual Runner / Missed Race Make-Up / Refund Information:

Refunds will not be given for races you miss or cannot attend for any reason.  Runners must be present on race day to compete for age category awards and participate in the sponsor raffle.

“Virtual runners” who complete the courses outside of the published race times must be registered to receive the commemorative 2019 Park City Trail Series swag package. Participation is “on your honor” but a GPS track, photos, or other proof of completion will help convince your friends that you got ‘er done as you sip from your race tumblers.  Virtual runners can add photos to the race photo gallery if emailed to race@slrc.com. However, course completion times will not be added to race day results.

We encourage visitors to take on the PCTS virtual challenge if they will not be in town on race day.  Multi-day GPS watch rentals are available at SLRC if you want one to track your run.

The trail names are marked at intersections but PCTS directional race signs will be removed after the final runner on race day.

Qualifying runs must be completed before the 2020 races begin. Race swag items  can be collected after completion of each distance or completion of all distances from Salt Lake Running Co (SLRC) at 700 E &  I-80 .  SLRC is conveniently located between Park City and the SLC airport.
