The Heber Valley Marathon & Half, the Valhalla 5K Run/Walk & Pursuit Race, and the Valkyrie Multisport Relay are all part of the Endurance Sports Summit lineup of events. The marathon and half marathon are stand-alone races held concurrently with the Valkyrie Multisport Relay.
The Heber Valley Marathon is a free race to the public, but racers must donate a minimum of $26.2 to local nonprofit organizations. For those participating in the half marathon a $13.1 donation is required to participate, and for those participating in the 5K a $5 donation is required.
Our goal for the marathon is to raise a minimum of $26,200 each year for local nonprofit organizations.
The ability to operate this race is due in part to a generous grant from the Wasatch Community Foundation and the Endurance Sports Summit.
The mission of the Wasatch Community Foundation is to advance the well-being of all Wasatch County residents by uniting community resources and programs through our different pillars. The mission of Wasatch Community Foundation Recreation Pillar is to provide stewardship of the county’s natural, cultural, and historical resources while fostering the needs of both residents and visitors for recreational pursuits. We aim to enrich the quality of life for our residents by providing a variety of recreation activities, parks and facilities that promote health, wellness, and fun for all ages.
Endurance Sports Summit is an all-day event that coincides with the Valkyrie Relay Race. The Summit brings together manufacturers, retailers, coaches, educators, and event companies, in an expo-style setting. Our goal is to have everyone involved in the endurance community together in one venue to exchange training ideas, learn about endurance-related products and plan out their event calendars for the next year, and to spend a day as a team participating in the Valkyrie Multi-Sport Relay, Heber Valley Marathon and Half, and the Valhalla 5K. As the event grows, we plan to add additional events to the lineup.
