Marathon and Sporting Events Overview:
It's no exaggeration when we say there's something for everyone at the Salt Lake City Marathon which returns for its 15th spectacular year on Saturday, April 21, 2018.
In a city known as a mecca for outdoor recreation lovers (and host of the 2002 Winter Olympics), this jam-packed sporting event features seven events in all: full and half marathons, a 10K Skate, a 26-mile Bike Tour through the most scenic parts of Salt Lake Valley, a 10K and 5K run and a 1K Kids Run.
The Salt Lake City Marathon and Half Marathon are certified and sanctioned through USATF, and the Marathon is a qualifier for the Boston Marathon.
Spring blossoms and scenic snowcapped mountains are backdrop at this acclaimed annual gathering that attracts more that 10,000 sports enthusiasts (plus as many spectators). The beautiful course winds through some of Salt Lake's most beautiful neighborhoods; passing by elegant estates, through city streets and magnificent bridges and at the base of gentle foothills. The Finish Line captures all the emotion and excitement that this kind of human achievement warrants-offering medals, awards, photos, food and drink, and live music.
Lifestyle Expo Overview
On the day before, a huge "Quality of Life" sports/fitness expo takes place and is required attendance for participants to pick up their race packets. More than 25,000 Expo visitors shop and learn about and shop the latest gear and related tech devices; provided by at least 60 vendors and sponsors.
