We are pleased to announce the Deseret News Classic Half Marathon! Last year was huge success so of course we’re bringing it back!

This course was designed with a PR in mind, with a gradual 1600 foot elevation drop. Runners will sail down Emigration Canyon along a gentle downhill course that follows the historic pioneer trail and ends along the Days of 47 Parade route. While on the parade route runners will be greeted by over 100,000 cheering Utahns to help push them towards the finish line celebration at Liberty Park!

The prize money (for Utah residents only) is $1,000 for 1st place, $500 for 2nd place, $250 for 3rd place.
