Parking
We are excited to announce that the East Canyon Marathon has a new finish location at the Morgan County Fairgrounds. The fairgrounds have great parking for cars as well as bus loading areas.

Take Morgan/State Street Exit off I-84 and make a fast right on State Street then a fast Left on 500E/Commerical Street. Follow this frontage street East until you see the fairgrounds and parking lot area on your right.

Spectators

The fairgrounds will be a great spectator area as well with grassy areas to sit and rest while runners come in.

Volunteers

Our volunteers are the best primarily due to them being runners themselves or family of runners and they know what a runner needs. It is not just about handing out water but the attitude of the volunteers that make a huge difference at our races. A motivated volunteer makes for a faster racer on the course. We do an awesome volunteer program. If you volunteer for one of our races we give you a $50 credit towards a future race within 13 months of the race you volunteered. If you choose to volunteer fill in the form. After the race please fill in the redemption form to claim your credit. Without the redemption form we will not know what race to give you credit.
