UPDATE: 2016 Tulip Festival Half Marathon and 5K are SOLD OUT. Support for this year's event has been outstanding. Registration for 2017 Tulip Festival Half Marathon at Thanksgiving Point will open May 1, 2016.
This isn’t your average run through the Tulips and it’s definitely not a PR course! Runners of all abilities will be challenged and awed by this remarkably beautiful and jaw-dropping half marathon course. Runners will travel through the Thanksgiving Point 55-acre estate Garden (through over 250,000 tulips, over waterfalls, through the Italian, Secret, and Parterre Gardens), over 5 miles of paths through the meandering Thanksgiving Point 18-Hole Championship Golf Course, and crossing the Jordan River twice.
You’ve got to see it to believe it! Are you up for the challenge?
Thanksgiving Point Institute is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit farm, garden, and museum complex that draws upon the natural world to cultivate transformative family learning
