Description:

This is a very challenging marathon course. If you run a 3:30 marathon expect to finish this race between 5-6 hours. There is 5,883 feet of elevation gain on Marathon course. The course is made up of 99.9% mountain trail and fire break roads. The only asphalt that your trail shoes will touch is a few crossing as you traverse northbound at the lower elevations. There are sections of accent and decent that will be technical but extremely scenic. As in the past you may experience snow, rain, mud, potential stream crossings but without a doubt – rocks.

Although the distance is that of a traditional marathon, it is anything but traditional. There will not be porta-johns, mile markers, spectators, or volunteers at every turn showing you which way to go. You should treat this race course like an ultra-distance race.

The course will be marked with orange and blue flagging. Continuous orange flagging will indicate the correct direction. A combination of orange and blue flagging will indicate an upcoming turn. The blue flagging will appear on the same side of the trail as the turn will occur. The course will be marked well but you must pay attention to the flagging. This is a challenging Half Marathon course. There is 2,389 feet of elevation gain on the Half Marathon course. The course is made up of mountain trail and fire break roads.

Starting at Timpanogos Park trail head, the course continues east on the Middle Aqueduct Road and connects to the Great Western Trail that runs through Johnson’s Bowl connecting to the Upper Aqueduct Road, the course runs west on the Upper Aqueduct Road to the shooting range connecting to the Bonneville Shoreline Trail, runs Bonneville Shoreline Trail to Dry Creek Canyon Trail Head.
