Description of Race Events

First run in 1970, the Deseret News Marathon is the oldest road race in Utah and the fourth oldest marathon west of the continental divide. The marathon follows the path that the Utah pioneers traveled when they first entered the valley. This event is truly a part of Utah’s heritage and history!

The Deseret News Classic takes place on July 24th, Pioneer Day, every year in downtown Salt Lake City. The Marathon, Half Marathon, 10k and 5k routes all join the Days of 47 Parade route where runners will be greeted by over 100,000 cheering Utahns! Running along the parade route is one of the most fun and unique aspects of the Deseret News Classic. All of the races finish at the same location on the north side of Liberty Park. Once you cross the finish line, enjoy the post race festivities and join your friends and family watching the parade come in!
