Top runners from around the world 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 Salt Lake City Marathon & Half Marathon starts 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, passes by cozy neighborhoods and elegant estates, and winds through Salt Lakes legendary wide streets, into the city center, via Liberty Park.

Here, the music will absolutely rock, the energy will surge, and crowds of enthusiastic spectators will cheer participants on, all the way to the electric finish at the Olympic Legacy Plaza at The Gateway, in downtown Salt Lake.

The Salt Lake City Marathon was beautiful. It was a great course. But it did lack a few things that I am used to in a marathon. No port a potty were available on the course, had to run to the 7/11 or the bushes. No food during the race. Just GU, gatorade and water. There were plenty to eat after the race but, I would prefer it during the run. Other than that it was a great run. Will run again next year.
