First run in 1970, the Deseret News Marathon is the oldest road race in Utah and the oldest marathon west of the continental divide! The marathon follows the path that the Utah pioneers followed when they first entered the valley. The race is truly a part of Utahs heritage and history!!
The race takes place on Pioneer Day every year. The Marathon, Half Marathon and 10k routes all join the Days of 47 Parade route as they turn onto 200 East. Once runners join the parade route they will be greeted by over 100,000 cheering Utahns!!! Running down the parade route is a running experience that cant be duplicated anywhere!
Come celebrate Utahs Pioneer Day with us this year!!
