Come run this June marathon in the beauty of Utah Valley. Cascading waterfalls, Provo River, and Deer Creek Reservoir will offer a tranquil running adventure. The majestic mountains in all directions offer an extraordinary running experience. The course offers ease for beginners and a potential PR for experts. This Provo Marathon is in close proximity to many national parks, and is only 50 miles south of the Salt Lake City International Airport.
The Utah Valley Marathon now has a new faster course, and it is still a Boston Marathon Qualifier. The Utah Valley Marathon is a beautiful race course that begins in Wallsburg, Utah, running into Provo Canyon and features much of Utah County’s diverse scenery. Marathon runners will run along canyon roads that follow the Provo River.
The race course has spectacular views of Bridal Veil Falls, the mountains, and the city. This Utah Marathon finishes in historic downtown Provo.
Awards to top 5 Men and Women
- Awards to top 3 in each age division
- Gift certificates for all race finishers
Cross-Country Style Teams: Now friends/family can run either our marathon or half marathon as a team. Each runner will still run the entire distance like runners do in a cross country race, and there are prizes for top 3 teams of each division. This doesn't not interfere with a person trying to win either their overall or age division awards in the open race. It is merely a fun opportunity to win additional awards and run with your friends as a team. Team members in the marathon will still be able to qualify for the Boston Marathon.
Boston Qualifier Rewards: The Utah Valley Marathon is the only marathon in the country with a Boston Marathon Qualifier rewards program. If you have qualified for the current 2011 Boston Marathon you can receive a discount code from us to our June 2011 race. Also if you manage to qualify on our particularly fast course you will receive a Boston Qualifier shirt. This was very popular last year, and people are even more excited about the shirt this year. The Boston Marathon sold out this year in less than 8 hours, so if you were an athlete that had qualified, but were unable to get in it would have been nice to have a Boston Qualifier shirt to have at least some acknowledgment for your great accomplishment.
