Course Time Limit

The University of Utah Health Salt Lake City Marathon is open to all participants of age who are able to finish in 6 Hours and 30 Minutes. Participants wishing to complete their event within that timeframe will need to maintain a 29 minute/mile or faster pace. There will be NO early start for runners.

If you are still on the course after 3 hours and 15 minutes, keep in mind that the full marathoners may be coming in from behind you, and you may be asked to continue the run on the sidewalk adjacent to our course. SAG wagons will patrol the route providing support to these participants.
