This incredibly scenic Boston qualifier course starts at Dancing Moose Farm in the heart of the Wasatch Mountains at an elevation of 5400 ft. with open roads, green fields, and a beautiful river. The final half winds around Pineview Reservoir then drops into Ogden Canyon where you will run along the roaring Ogden River with breathtaking views of pine-covered slopes and steep rock cliffs. The course ends downtown Ogden on Historic 25th street at an elevation of 4,309 Ft. and an incredible finish line festival that is great for the whole family. The gentle downhill makes this event a fast Boston Qualifier, and is one of the many reasons why Runner's World and shape.com named it One of the Best Courses in America for First-Time Marathon Runners.

This is a scenic point-to-point race starting in beautiful Ogden Canyon and ending at our world-class finish line on Historic 25th Street. The 12K is a great bridge between a 5K and half marathon distance, and is a perfect to run or walk while awaiting a friend or family member to finish their full or half marathon race. Take in beautiful canyon views while you run along the Ogden River and head towards Downtown Ogden, where the community awaits to cheer you on during the final stretch to the finish line.


The Ogden Marathon 5K starts near the Junction Downtown and winds along the Ogden River Parkway before looping back down Grant Avenue for about a mile until you cross the Finish Line. The Ogden River Parkway is a paved pathway that parallels the Ogden River through lush trees. This winding 3.1 mile course will rank amongst the most enjoyable 5K runs you'll ever experience.

The Granite KidsK is one of our favorite events on marathon day! The KidsK starts at 12:30 pm in front of the Ogden Amphitheater and ends at the same finish line as all of our athletes! You'll want to be at the start line a little early...because we have a pre-run dance party for the kiddos and may have a few special visitors too! Whether you join in on the festivities with your little ones or hang on the sidelines for high-fives, this is an event you will not want to miss! The KidsK is for ages under 12 and the course is less than 1 mile. Everyone will receive a superhero cape and a finishers bell for participating. Registration for this event will open in early May.
