Come and run the beautiful mountains of Morgan and experience this one of a kind race. The course is scenic, fast and more fun than you can imagine. With the success of last year’s race we are anticipating the Marathon and Half Marathon to fill up quickly so don’t delay. … MORE

    The beauty of this location grabs me. There are mountains, streams, and irrigation channels and did I say hills. The most friendly people I have been around at 6:00 am. The expo is at the county fairgrounds and mostly consists of picking up you shirt and bib. …. but did I say the people are friendly… met the race directors before the race and ate with a six time Boston runner. Had a great talk with others about which race to run in each state. So what I can tell you is this is a great race and I will try to come back. Really love the people there.

    Less than 100 marathoners ran across BREATHTAKING country side. I saw more goats, cows, and horses that day than I had seen in a while. I enjoyed the marathon and the swag was worth it. The early start was a bit much in mountain time but helped combat the heat. I didn’t notice any elevation issues. Water stations were great with snacks as well. The only dislike is we were running along the country road so at times I wasn’t sure if a truck coming towards me saw me before it moved towards the center. I do recommend this course && It was SUPER cheap.

    I really enjoyed this marathon. My favorite part was running through an area where several people had goats on leashes eating down the tall grass by the side of the road. I stopped and petted several. We also ran by other animals and I saw a mule deer (I think) up on a mountain. The course was good, not overly hilly or too flat either. The scenery was beautiful. They offered free pictures, but I’m slower and I think the photographer must have gotten off before I finished, because I only saw myself in one of the pictures and it was from the start. Other than than, everything went well. They offered massages and lots of food afterwards. I’d recommend this run for anyone looking to run in Utah.

    Great job Aprille, and congrats on coloring state #32 blue on your map! Thanks for your thoughtful review, I'm a fellow 50 Stater still trying to choose from among the many Utah marathons, so your experience is especially helpful. Don't know your running plans for the rest of the year, but we'll be in Jackson Hole on Sept 1 and Kansas City on Oct 20, so hopefully our paths will cross soon! LESS

    One of the best marathon experiences I have had. The field size was small (+- 100), the spectators few, and the course incredibly beautiful. A lot of the race it was me, the course and nature. I loved that. The course is an honest course, which is refreshing considering most races here in Utah are screaming downhill.

    The pre-race meal was great, the logistics easy (starts and ends in the same place), the SWAG good (beanie, nice shirt and nice medal), it was chip-timed, the course support was great (they even had a roaming aid station on an ATV), and the volunteers were well-trained.

    This race would be great for a 50-stater looking for their Utah race. It is the only time I will get to both BQ and come in 4th overall! I must admit I loved that. I can’t say enough about how nice it was to run this marathon. I will be back.

    Thank you for taking time to review the race. I am going to do it as my Utah race. It was important to me to pick the right race as I am traveling a distance (17 hours) to come. So it is important to me to pick correctly. Thanks again Michael. LESS

    This all sounds awesome, Jose — the race, your review and your performance! Congrats on both your BQ and near-podium finish, that's one fine day at the races. I'm one of those 50 staters you referenced looking for my Utah race, and like you said most of the courses in your state are screaming downhills, so this one's particularly appealing. Love hearing about races like this, and hope you'll share more of your racing experiences here on the site. Keep running strong! LESS
