The Salt Lake City Marathon and Half Marathon are certified and sanctioned through USATF, and the marathon is a qualifier for the Boston Marathon. Live bands will performed on the entertainment stages and there was plenty of fun diversions for participants, their families and friends. The Salt Lake City Bike Tour was the first of its kind in Utah! The 26-mile Bike Tour offers biking fans the opportunity for a non-stop ride through the most scenic and spectacular parts of the Salt Lake Valley. This unique opportunity to ride the marathon course offers cyclists other great perks as well.

Event Start Location
University of Utah: Legacy Bridge

Course Description
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 flat and slightly downhill 26.2 mile course.

The Marathon, Half Marathon, and Bike Tour all start near 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, passes by cozy neighborhoods and elegant estates, and winds through Salt Lake’s legendary wide streets, through gorgeous Sugar House and Liberty Parks before ending in the heart of the Salt Lake City, between Library and Washington Squares. Here, the music will absolutely rock, the energy will surge, and crowds of enthusiastic spectators will cheer participants on!

Award medals will be presented three deep in all age divisions for the marathon, half marathon and 5K for both male and female categories.
