Description of Race Events

First run in 1970, the Deseret News Marathon is the oldest road race in Utah and the 4th oldest marathon west of the continental divide. The marathon follows the path the Utah pioneers traveled when they first entered the valley. This event is truly a part of Utah’s heritage!

Packet Pickup

If you register on or after July 20, you will need to wait until the following day after you register to attend packet pick-up as we will not have your bib ready for you! You may pick up packets for someone else if you bring a signed note authorizing you to do so. At packet pickup you will get your race bib with timing chip, shirt and goodie bag. For the Salt Lake location, you may park in the Marriott hotel parking lot, enter through the main entrance and proceed downstairs.

There is no race day packet pickup.
