About This Activity
First run in 1970, the Deseret News Marathon is the oldest road race in Utah and the fourth oldest marathon west of the continental divide. The marathon follows the path that the Utah pioneers traveled when they first entered the valley. The event is truly a part of Utah's heritage and history!
The 2016 Deseret News Classic will take place on July 25th in dowtown Salt Lake City. The marathon and half marathon courses are USATF certified and the marathon is a Boston Qualifier. The Marathon, Half Marathon, 10k and 5k routes all join the Days of 47 Parade route where runners will be greeted by over 100,000 cheering Utahns! Running along the parade route is one of the most fun and unique aspects of the Deseret News Classic. All of the races finish at the same location on the north side of Liberty Park. Once you cross the finish line, enjoy the post race festivities and join your friends and family watching the parade come in!
