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.

FAQs

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.
