Runners of all ages and ability levels will enjoy crisp, cool running weather in April, in a setting that surrounds them with snow-capped peaks contrasting with spring blossoms, all along a scenic and slightly downhill 26.2 mile course. The Marathon, Half Marathon, and Bike Tour all start at the Olympic Legacy Bridge at the University of Utah, the site of the 2002 Winter Olympic Athlete Village.
The gentle course then skirts the base of the towering Wasatch Mountains, travels through the Federal Heights neighborhood and the scenic 11th avenue before dropping into downtown and near Temple Square through Memory Grove. The route then snakes through city streets and passes by cozy neighborhoods and elegant estates, winding through Salt Lake’s legendary wide streets, and through gorgeous Sugar House and Liberty Parks until it culminates on 200 E between Library and Washington Squares. Here, the music will absolutely rock, the energy will surge, and crowds of enthusiastic spectators will cheer participants on as the city comes alive in celebration of the thousands of lifetime achievements being created in the heart of Salt Lake City. There will be fun and excitement for all who attend!
The Salt Lake City Marathon is certified by USA Track and Field (USATF) and sanctioned through the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA). Divisions include open, masters, and 18 age groups.
