NEW RACE COURSE follows the Mid Mountain Trail, starting at Silver Lake/Deer Valley to its terminus, then winds down through the Utah Olympic Park trail system to finish at the bottom of the Nordic jumps at the Utah Olympic Park. The course, rolling across the Wasatch Back through aspen and evergreen forests at an average elevation of 8,200′, is largely shaded single-track. The Mid Mountain Marathon embodies the essence of mountain trail running with intermittent technical sections, a few sustained climbs and fast downhills. Voted best trial marathon in Utah, the Mid Mountain Marathon is a true trail runner’s marathon and is part of the Triple Trail Challenge.
COURSE INFO, CUT-OFF / CLOSURE: 26.2 miles on single track trail from Silver Lake Lodge at Deer Valley Resort to The Forum at the Canyons. Marathon course closes at 2:00pm. For your safety, we have set up a “free ride home” location. If you are not at The Colony located at mile 16 by 11:00am you will be asked to head back to the finish via sporadic vehicle transportation.
