  • I first ran Ogden Marathon in '07 and haven't missed a year since. Each year doing the full except doing my first half ever in '08. I'm hooked on this race, the course, the volunteers, everything.

  • I have been running the spring runoff since the first year! It is THE race to do! The half is my favorite. I don't know any other route more beautiful!

    Amy Bindrup Rawson

  • Ogden was my first full marathon in May 2011, and I loved every minute of it! The course was beautiful, and the volunteers were AMAZING! My goal for my first marathon was to finish it, and I succeeded. Love this race, and am definitely planning on running it again in 2012.

    Linsey Hunt Harkness

  • We have run several marathons and half marathons and ran the Ogden half this year. We have never seen such friendly, helpful volunteers and it had the cleanest aid stations of any of our races. We plan to run the full marathon next year.

  • Ogden 2011 was my first marathon. I loved it! This course is absolutely gorgeous! I loved the scenery! I would definitely run Ogden again!

    Andrea Smith

  • The first time I ran the Ogden Half was 2010, two days before I finished chemotherapy treatments for breast cancer. This race really means something to me, it is a reminder of of how precious life is and how grateful I am to be healthy and have another year. I'll be doing this race every year, for the rest of my life!
