The Salt Lake City Marathon is an annual marathon foot-race run entirely within Salt Lake City, Utah.

The 26.2 mile course begins at the Olympic Legacy Bridge at the University of Utah. It follows the base of the Wasatch Mountains before turning into the city's neighborhoods, passing through Liberty Park and finishing at the Olympic Legacy Plaza in the Gateway District downtown. A bike tour follows the entire length of the course, and 5K and half marathon courses that each follow a portion of the full course, all ending at the Gateway.

History

The marathon was first organized in 2004 by Devine Racing, a Chicago-based race organization company that is responsible for several other races, including the Los Angeles Marathon and the Las Vegas Marathon.

In 2005, a bike tour was added. In 2006, a half-marathon was added, and the date of the race was moved from April to June, attracting over 11,000 participants. For 2007 the date will be once again moved, back to April.
