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

It follows the base of the Wasatch Mountainsbefore turning into the city's neighborhoods, passing through Liberty Parkand finishing at the Olympic Legacy Plaza in the Gateway Districtdowntown. A bike tour follows the entire length of the course, and 5K and half marathoncourses that each follow a portion of the full course, all ending at the Gateway.
