Speaking on Business: Zions Bank Ogden Marathon
The Zions Bank Ogden Marathon attracts runners from all 50 states and several countries.
This is Chris Redgrave for Zions Bank Speaking on Business.
The Zions Bank Ogden Marathon has gained national attention for its quality course and appeal to all levels of runners. Runner’s World called it “One of the Top Ten Marathons in the World” because with an elevation drop of nearly 1,100 feet, it’s a great choice for first-time marathon runners. Registration for the May 19 event is open now.
Picture beginning the race at an elevation of 5400 feet, with open roads, green fields and a beautiful gushing river. As the course progresses, you’ll round Pineview Reservoir, then drop into Ogden Canyon, running alongside the roaring Ogden River and see breathtaking views of pine-covered slopes. Exit the canyon, run on the Ogden River Parkway, past Dinosaur Park and the Utah State University Botanical Gardens and end the race on Historic 25th Street in Ogden, at an elevation of 4,300 feet.
The Zions Bank Ogden Marathon attracts runners from all 50 states and several countries. It’s a significant event with thousands of volunteers giving hours of their time to produce the event, which includes full and half marathons, relay teams, a 5K and kids run. New this year is the Double Medal option, so those who complete both the Ogden and St. George Marathons can earn a medal.
