Official Training Series of the

Ogden Marathon


The Winter Training Series helps you train for either a Full Marathon or Half Marathon come springtime. This year we are excited to introduce a new four-part training series supported by race specific 18-week training plans, designed by Coach Lora Erickson of blonderunner.com.


The Winter Training Series will help prepare you to run any distance in the Ogden Marathon, or train for other springtime running events!

WHAT IS THE SHORT COURSE?

The series will continue to offer a Half Marathon Training Series, also known as the "short course." The Half Marathon Training Series will be on the same day as the full series but will feature a shorter course designed to get you ready for the Ogden Half Marathon.

Please note that the short distance series is offered as a non-competitive service. Participants in the "short course" will not be included in awards. You will have the option to choose whether you'd like to run the full course or the short course at each race.

COURSE CUTOFF TIME

There is no cutoff time to complete any of the Winter Race Circuit events. Courses will be supported with aid stations and road closures long enough for participants running an average pace of 20 minutes per mile to complete the course. We encourage participants who are still on course after road closures are lifted to use caution when crossing roads and to carry hydration with them if they do not anticipate meeting the cutoff times. Some vendors may be packed up, but our team will be there to cheer everyone across the finish line.

Packet Pickup

  • Location and Time To Be Announced.

STANDALONE "A LA CARTE" Events

***Please Note***
In order to keep prices low, the Participant Shirt is not included with standalone a la carte distance registrations. If you would like to purchase a shirt, please add it on for $15 at the end of your registration form. With your standalone registration you will receive a finisher's medal for the event you participate in, along with course support including professional timing, aid stations, and finish line treats!

AWARDS

Awards will be given to the Full Series Winners (top 3 male, top 3 female, top 3 non-binary) in the overall and masters categories (ages 40+).

There are no awards for the half marathon training "short courses" or virtual events.

If you wish to qualify for an award, you must complete the long course in-person at all 4 events. If you need to miss a race, you may still earn your medal for that distance by running virtually before the next race and submitting your time through your participant portal.
