Looking for a fast early summer race? Check out the Utah Valley Marathon, Half Marathon, and 10K, held on June 10th in Provo Canyon. This race has been on my list for a couple of years now, and I’m doing my best to get out there for the 2017 race with some awesome friends. Why? Because this race looks amazing!
First off, it’s a downhill course, so it’s super fast. (It’s also a Boston qualifier course, so you speedy marathoners may want to get on this.) Second, it’s absolutely gorgeous. How many races do you know of that run past forests, lakes, and waterfalls. WATERFALLS, people! Finally, it’s just a friendly race run by awesome people with awesome volunteers. And let’s be honest, that’s what really makes a race. It was even named a Top 10 race in America by Runner’s World Magazine in 2014.
For those of you really into the swag, they’ve got big medals planned for this year, but even better, since it’s the 10th anniversary of the race, instead of a race shirt (which we all have a lot of, let’s be honest), they’re giving out a really nice running jacket. I don’t know about where you live, but here, it’s been cold, and I could definitely use another running jacket (so I can do laundry less).
