YOU ASKED. WE LISTENED.
The answer to “What if the 5K is not enough but the Half Marathon is too much?” is the brand-spanking new Salt Lake City Marathon 10k Run. What better way to commemorate our 15th Anniversary than to add a new way to experience race day!
Participants will utilize a portion of the half marathon course, starting near 500 S and 900 E, and will run through the Sugar House and downtown areas. Our fastest course – the route is relatively flat and smooth with slight grade variation.
