It may be below zero at night in Midway right now, but in 200 short days it will be mid-summer and time for the inaugural Wasatch Back Marathon and Team Relay. We are so excited about it. Many of you are putting your spring/summer/fall training and racing plans together and we suggest you start that plan by registering now for the Wasatch Back Marathon and Team Relay.
Registration is now open and it is only $50 for the marathon, or $50 each for the 3-person Relay Teams. This is a great deal. You get to run through some of the most beautiful country in Utah or anywhere. Two thirds of the course is on trails or dirt roads. If you're running the marathon, this will be a tough, but manageable one you'll never forget. And if you're running the Relay, it is very doable for average/casual runners. The first leg is flat with a decent hill climb the last couple of miles. The second is 11.3 miles with about half being a gradual climb and the other half a nice gentle decline. And leg three is all on dirt - nice! Of course leg 3 is 6.1 miles of all down hill!
We're getting ready with a great runner package we think you'll love. A nice shirt, a cool finishers medal, awesome goodies at the end, and a rocking Expo and party the evening before.
The price goes up soon, so register now.
And if you have a suggestion on how to make this first annual Wasatch Back Marathon & Team Relay, the best marathon & relay in the state, then we want to hear from you. Email me, the race director at email@example.com.
The snow is deep on most of the course right now, but under all that snow the miles are marked and waiting for spring and summer. Register now and get the Wasatch Back Marathon and Team Relay on your personal race calendar.
