The Races

The Deseret News Marathon is the longest-operating marathon in Utah. For 51 years runners have been racing down the historic pioneer route into the Salt Lake Valley and through the Days of '47 Parade. The Deseret News races consist of a full marathon, half marathon, 10K, and 5K.

Past Results

Check in on your past Deseret News Race results so you can keep chasing that personal record. We look forward to seeing you again at the finish line!


We do not provide refunds. You can transfer to a different race distance on race day - July 22, 2023 (ie marathon to half marathon, half marathon to 10k, etc), but must contact us before July 20th. If you move to a more expensive race you will need to pay the extra cost, no partial refunds will be given if you move to a lower race. You can also switch your registration to another runner prior to July 21st. A final option is to defer to a later year, but we need to be contacted by July 1 in order to defer. Please contact us at [email protected]

Quite cool in the mountains but when you hit the valley expect an immediate and significant increase in temperature. Can vary in the valley from 70 to 85 degrees depending on your pace.

  • Marathon and half marathon: Hogle Zoo parking lot is the best place to watch them come out of the canyon.
  • Finish Line: For the finish line at Liberty Park, spectators can park along the side streets close to Liberty Park. We will have food and entertainment for spectators to enjoy with us at the finish line. We are working hard to turn the finish line into a great place for runners and family and friends to spend some time before the Parade or holiday celebrations.

There are portable toilets at the start and finish line and at every aid station. You might want to go before you come to try and avoid long lines at the starting line.

  • Half Marathon: Park in Rice Eccles stadium parking lot on the west end. No parking at starting line. Only access to start it by bus.
