Antelope Island Marathon routes
The Full Marathon course is very scenic. Starting at the Marina of Antelope Island runners run the Half Course out and back. This course starts out of the marina and heads West around a loop on Antelope Island. This loop connects back to Antelope Island Road and heads South to Garr Fielding Ranch. This route is primarily on the East side of the island overlooking Davis County and the Great Salt Lake to the East. This route is 100% paved but off the pavement you will see herds of Bison (Buffalo) and other wildlife like deer, coyote and more. Truly a breath taking route feeling like you are in the old frontier.
The Half Marathon course starts near the South end of Antelope Island near Garr Fielding Ranch. This course heads north 9.5 Miles across Antelope Island with wildlife to the West and the Great Salt Lake to the East. The sunrise is incredible on the Great Salt Lake with Layton City in the background. At Mile 9.5 the runners will make a left turn West and follow a loop around the West side of the island. Views here of Bridger Bay(Named after Jim Bridger) and some of Elephant Rock. The loop will continue around the island until you finish at the Maina. The Marina is the finish for all four courses and the location where you will park your car and load the bus this year.
