One of the most pristine marathons that Utah has to offer, this course starts in the Monte Cristo area and ends at Huntsville Town Park (Route Map and Elevation Profile) during the peak of our vibrant autumn colors. This course offers a gentle decline in elevation of 3,500 feet from start to finish. The 10K and 5K runs start and end in Huntsville Town.

Prior to the race we will all meet in the beautiful Huntsville Town Park. All marathon runners will ride buses from Huntsville Park. No driving up alone. The Full Marathon starts at Monte Cristo at State Route 39, mile marker 43 (26.2 miles). The Half Marathon starts at mile marker 30 (13.1 miles).

Marathon Route
With the autumn leaves ever so vibrant, this is a gorgeous scenic course starting in the Monte Cristo area and continuing along the South Fork of the Ogden River. The route then passes by the old site of the Abbey of the Holy Trinity Monastery in Huntsville and finishes at Huntsville Town Park where we will have booths and vendors set up. Across from the park is the Historic Shooting Star Saloon, top five in the nation for burgers.

Utah State Route 39 and is a two-lane paved road that travels across three scenic areas within the Ogden Ranger District (Ogden Canyon, Pineview Reservoir, and Monte Cristo Road). It is an officially designated Utah State Scenic Byway. The scenic marathon run travels through the narrow river canyon, and descends for many miles alongside of the willow and cottonwood-lined river towards Huntsville. The road passes through an array of vegetation types, from sagebrush covered hills and riparian forests in the lower elevations to the cool Englemann spruce, Douglas fir and Aspen forests. The beautiful mountains and breathtaking fall colors of September and October make this marathon hard to beat. You won’t soon forget the vistas of this scenic run.

Traffic Control
The Weber County Sheriff Department will be providing a rolling closure for all Full and Half Marathon runners. We continue to strive to make sure that our runners will have a safe and wonderful experience.
