Marathon

The Marathon starts at Galena Hills Park in Draper. A great park with plenty of parking. You will begin running through the park and then run through the only trail section of the race to meet up with the Jordan River after about half a mile.

From here the views are spectacular all around. You will cross bridges, run through dense trees lining the paved trail, run past golf courses, parks, and of course you will be treated to views of the Jordan River all along the course as well.

This route follows the Jordan River Trail for the majority of the race. This course will explore the best parts both South and North on the Jordan River Trail.

 

This course will be beautiful this time of year with Spring in full effect along the Jordan River!
