5 Reasons to Run the Utah Valley Marathon

The Utah Valley Marathon takes place on June 10, 2017, and is celebrating its 10th anniversary!  The race takes place in Provo Canyon, Utah and the weekend consists of a marathon, half marathon, 10K, Kids 1K, and K9 dash!   If you’re still looking for a race to add to your spring calendar this June, you should definitely add the Utah Valley Marathon to your list – and I’m sharing 5 reasons why!

#1 – You Can Check off Utah If You’re Aiming to Race in Every State

If you’re a marathon maniac or half fanatic that is looking to race in all 50 states, the Utah Valley Marathon might be just what you’ve been looking for!  It has also been recognized by Runner’s World Magazine as one of the Top 10 races in America, so it clearly has a great reputation as being well-organized and a great experience for runners!

#2 – The Fast, Downhill Course is Great if You’re Aiming to BQ!

It’s all downhill from here!  Can you imagine racing through these gorgeous views and running beside the mountains?  The Utah Valley Marathon, Half Marathon, and 10K course have a net downhill which makes things really fun!  I have such admiration for runners who train to qualify for the Boston Marathon – Utah could be the place where you finally get that BQ!

#3 – You Can Get a Special 10 Year Anniversary Jacket!

In honor of the race’s 10th anniversary, finishers will receive a limited-edition jacket with registration!  There’s something badass about receiving a jacket after running a marathon!  Don’t you already have more finisher T-shirts than you really need?  I know that I do!  And don’t worry, there will still be a finisher’s medal!

#4 – Many of Your Favorite Running Bloggers Will Be There!

Here’s just a short list of some of the running bloggers that will be at the Utah Valley Marathon this year:
