Follow all no parking and tow away zones, as you are at risk for a ticket and towing.


  • You can drop your clothing in designated areas at Half Marathon and Full Marathon start line.

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.

Ogden Marathon Ambassadors

Stacy Bernal

Stacy Bernal ran the OM for the first time in 2008 as leg one of a relay team. After witnessing the magic at the finish line, the following year she ran her first full marathon, and she hasn't stopped running since. Though she has run all over the country (and once in Mexico and once on a cruise ship in the middle of the ocean), the Ogden Marathon has her heart and soul. She's excited to celebrate the 20th anniversary in 2020, running what will be her ninth full marathon. (And probably her last. But she's been saying that since she ran her first.) Stacy is proud to be a part of the Ogden community, not only as an Ambassador, but as a WSU alumna, OSD mom, and nonprofit director. She is the founder of See Stacy Speak LLC and author of "The Things We Don't Talk About: A Memoir of Hardships, Healing, and Hope."

Glady Larsen

I am a non-profit professional and my passion is helping people. I also love the outdoors and Utah has been the best playground for me and my family. In the winter we ski Snowbasin, in the summer we waterski that melted snow at Pineview, but all year round, I run! I have loved running my whole entire life, however, I started participating in races in 2006 when my youngest was just a year old. I didn't fall in love with racing until I was introduced to the Ogden Marathon and the Winter Racing Circuit. Once you get to run Ogden Canyon you fall in love with this race forever! This year I participated in the relay (last minute, I was contacted that same week), but when they told me it was the leg that went down the Ogden Canyon, I couldn't resist.

One thing that keeps me coming back year after year is the wonderful support found in all races. When you run Ogden you know that the aid stations will be right when you need them! Everything is so well organized and volunteers are treated incredibly! I have participated both as a runner and a volunteer and nothing beats the energy found in this race! The running community is so incredible, who wouldn't want to be surrounded by the coolest strangers ever! In reality, every race gives me a chance to meet someone that becomes a friend, every volunteer opportunity leads me to a new connection and it makes me aware that we have an awesome community and at the end of the day it reminds me to Get Out And Live!

Coach Lora Erickson

My love of running started at an early age and has grown since. I found running to be a great outlet for life’s stresses and I loved to push myself; but didn’t discover my true talent until high school as one of Colorado top distance runners and was recruited to run for the University of Utah on scholarship later transferring to Utah State University where I graduated with a degree in Health Education with minors in Nutrition and Chemistry as well as a running coach certification. I have now fully embraced coaching and athletics as a career and I have enjoyed working with all level of athletes over the years and helping them reach their potential. As an athlete I still enjoy pushing myself and recently competing in the Ironman 70.3 World Championship in Africa as an All-World athlete. Visit my website to learn more BlondeRunner.com

"I have taken the 'Get out and live' phrase to heart and love all of what the Ogden Marathon promotes. Out of all the many races I have done over the last 25 years I have been racing, Ogden is one of my favorites. I love the mountains and this race has amazing views, that literally take your breath away.

Jenet Davis

I ran my first 1/2 marathon, a fun run that was put on by my employer, in Sept of 2012, just two weeks before my 30th birthday. After finishing that, a friend convinced me that if I could run a half then I could totally do a full. I signed up for the Winter Race Circuit and the Ogden marathon and I was hooked. Since then I have completed several marathons, 50ks, 50 milers and earned my first belt buckle at the Buffalo 100. But the Ogden Marathon course will always have my heart! Not only was it my first marathon but my husband, 3 kids and I live at the 6 1/2 mile mark. And if you look out on Pineview around mile 12 you can see we where we were married. I feel so lucky to be able to train on this beautiful course! 2020 will be my seventh time running the Ogden Marathon.

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!
