It is typically anywhere between 20-35 degrees at the Full Marathon start line and slightly warmer at the Half Marathon start line. There will be fire barrels at the Full & Half Marathon start to help keep you warm.

We highly recommend that you come prepared for cold temperatures at the start line by layering and then shedding your layers to put in your drop bag just before the race begins.

You can also check the local forecast for the Huntsville area leading up to the race if you are running the Full or Half. Porta-potties and last-minute instructions will be provided at the starting areas.

Please utilize our pacers and line up accordingly. Faster runners will line up in the front, their times are based on the gun time all other age group awards are based on your chip time.

If you are planning to walk the Full, Half or 5K please plan to line up towards the back, this helps the flow of the start and also helps to keep all athletes safe.

Volunteer

The Goal Foundation

The Ogden Marathon is produced by the GOAL Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit.

During the 2002 Winter Olympic Games it was very apparent that the community of Ogden had something special, something unique that was revealed in the spirit of the games.... unequivocal volunteer support. A small group of people that later became the founding board members of the GOAL Foundation immediately realized that this spirit had to be captured and nurtured in order to transform the community into a mecca for outdoor recreation and world class athletic events.

They asked the local organizing committee for permission to reach out to the volunteers and were granted just one shot. The rest is history. Thirteen years later, as a result of that spirit and vision, the Ogden community and GOAL have played host to world class events such as the Archery World Cup, The Dew Tour, XTERRA USA Championships, XTERRA USA Trail Championships, USA Collegiate Cycling Championships, USA Cycling Masters Championships, The Tour of Utah, The Zions Bank Ogden Marathon and many, many more!

Today we continue with that legacy and sincerely thank all those who have contributed in one way or another as a GOAL Foundation Volunteer. GOAL Volunteers are, beyond a shadow of a doubt, the best in the business! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

If you are interested in receiving volunteer information as events are approaching, please fill out the information here and we'll be sure to email you as volunteer opportunities arise!
