From the organiser

The Utah Valley Marathon is arguably the fastest June Marathon in the country. Of all spring marathons this course offers the most unique and diverse scenery. Our race route winds through one of the most scenic parts of Provo Canyon, passing forests, lakes, and waterfalls. Come see for yourself why the Utah Valley Marathon was named a TOP 10 race in the country. We hope to see you at this Utah marathon in June!


This year we are giving our runners T-shirts and shorts with registration in addition to countless other amenities.

Course Details

The Utah Valley Marathon is a fast paced scenic course that begins in Wallsburg, Utah, running into Provo Canyon and features much of the diverse scenery offered in Utah County. Marathon runners will run along canyon roads that follow the Provo River.

The race course has spectacular views of Bridal Veil Falls, the mountains, and the city. This Utah Marathon finishes in historic downtown Provo at the Utah County Courthouse park.

The Utah Valley Marathon course is both scenic and fast. You will notice in the elevation chart above that the course is almost entirely downhill. There are a couple small climbs, but this is a predominantly downhill race. You have a net loss of over 1700 feet in elevation. The other unique feature about the race that will aid your speed is that there are no turns on the course after mile 7. Fewer turns helps you run faster (every 90 degree turn in a race is a momentum killer), and fewer turns helps prevent runners from going off course. After you set your PR on our easy and fast course be sure to ring our PR bell in the finish, so people can join you in the celebration. The race runs by the Beautiful Deer Creek Reservoir, Provo River, Provo Canyon, and the mountains in all directions.

This Utah Half Marathon has a fast paced scenic course that begins in Provo Canyon and features much of Utah County’s diverse scenery. This spring Half Marathon sends runners along the US 189 highway, and runners will experience the majestic mountains of Utah. Half Marathon runners will enjoy one of the fastest half marathon courses in the country. Of all the Utah Half Marathons this may be the only one that has zero turns on the race course.

The half marathon race course has spectacular views of the beautiful Utah Valley, and historic down town Provo. Half Marathon runners will finish in front of the Historic Provo Tabernacle.

This race has one of the most desirable changes in elevation of all half marathons in Utah. Half Marathon runners recover quickly from this course that has a nice scenic downhill that is not too steep, but it gives just enough downhill to aid your speed.

One of the biggest advantages to speed on this course is that there are no turns. This course uniquely starts and ends on the same road. We simply bus you up 13.1 miles up away from the starting line, so that you can enjoy the nice gentle downhill decent.

This Utah 10K has a gentle downhill race course for all ability levels. The route follows the last miles of the marathon. The downhill route is great for beginners. As you run into the last stretch, thousands of spectators will cheer you on to the finish.

This Utah Kids 1K fun run offers children an experience to run into a finish chute with thousands of spectators cheering them to the finish. Each child will receive a bib number, a FREE shirt, and a finisher medal for FREE. There will be FREE food and fun in the finish area, and FREE access to a bounce house. The race will not be timed. This is designed to be a fun run that parents and children can enjoy without worrying about how fast they run.

Raceday Logistics

Both the half-marathon and the marathon starting lines will have bag drops (this is not available at the 10K). Your expo goodie bag doubles as a gear drop bag; please bring it with you to the starting line if you intend to drop-off a bag. Each bib will have a bag tag that you can tear off and zip tie to your gear bag.

While we take the utmost care with all items left at the gear drop areas, DO NOT put valuable or expensive items like cameras, car or house keys, cell phones, money, watches/jewelry, expensive clothing, GPS devices, or otherwise in the gear drop bags. We cannot be held liable for lost, or damaged items.

Clothing bags not picked-up on race day will be donated to a local charity. Items left anywhere along the route will be donated to a local charity.

Kit List

There are no specific requirements for this race - just bring yourself and some cool clothes as it can get really very hot! However, with the early start it can be really chilly first thing so remember to wear layers. One suggestion is to buy a cheap throw away sweater at a discount store to wear for the first several miles and then toss on the side of the road when you don’t want to use it anymore. All clothing dropped on the side of the road during the marathon will be donated to charity.

Spectators

There is always a brilliant atmosphere at the finish as the runners cross the line and, given the difficulty in getting to the start, this is really the best place to watch and you'll be part of the big moment!

Volunteers

Volunteers are treasured by us and it's a brilliant race to be involved in - please head over to our website to sign up as a volunteer.

MP3/IPOD/EARPHONES


While the Utah Valley Marathon does not prohibit music players or earphones, we encourage you to keep the music low enough, or use only one ear bud, so that you can hear instructions from course marshals, volunteers, and uniformed law enforcement, as well as hear other runners that may be passing you from behind.


Music loud enough to be heard by your fellow runners can be both distracting and irritating. Please use courtesy and common sense when setting your music volume.
