Ogden Marathon 26.2

The Marathon's beautiful course starts at an elevation of 5400ft .  As you run the first half you will enjoy open roads, green fields and a beautiful gushing river.  At the half way mark and start of the 1/2 Marathon you are at an elevation of 5000ft.   The last half of the Marathon is equally beautiful. 

You will start the final half by running around Pineview Reservoir then drop into Ogden Canyon where you will run along the roaring Ogden River.  Breathtaking views of pine covered slopes changing into steep rock faces will be encountered along with quaint homes nestled along the river's edge.  Exiting the canyon you run onto the Ogden River Parkway for approximately 2 miles which will take you past Dinosaur Park and the Utah State University Botanical Gardens.  The course ends downtown on Historic 25th street at an elevation of 4,309 Feet.

  • 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!

    Kim Davis Ulmer

  • 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.

    Amy Bindrup Rawson

  • 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.
