YOU ASKED. WE LISTENED.
The answer to “What if the 5K is not enough but the Half Marathon is too much?” is the newest addition to our event family, the Salt Lake City Marathon 10k Run.
NEW Start Line for 2020! The 10K Run will start at the same location as the 5k on 200 E between 400 S and 500 S. Athletes will run through the Sugar House neighborhood and downtown areas. Our fastest course – the route is relatively flat and smooth with slight grade variation.
Aid Stations Water will be available at the event start and finish lines, with one water station mid-point on the course.
Medical Support Representatives from the event’s medical and communication team will be stationed along the course to observe participants and assist with any medical injuries or emergencies.
Portable Toilets Portable toilets will be available at the start and finish area. Please DO NOT relieve yourself on either private or public property along the course.
Course Markings We have made an effort to mark potential course hazards (such as manhole covers, divots in pavement, pot holes, etc.) along the course in bright orange fluorescent paint.
Strollers Runners with strollers are asked to please keep to the right throughout the course as a courtesy to other participants who will be merging into the course. If you are still on the course and the police escort for the runners comes upon you, please move to the far right to allow the lead runners through. Continue along the right until you have reached the finish line chute. Please observe the time and be aware that half marathon runners could catch up to you on the course.
Skaters 10K Skaters will be start the race in front of 10K Runners. Please line up behind skaters prior to the start of the race.
