2013 Ogden Marathon Course Preview

Whether you’ve chosen the Zion’s Bank Ogden Marathon for the lush scenery or the screamingly fast course, you’re in for a truly memorable run through an idyllic part of Utah. The CLIF Bar Pace Team is excited to be returning to Ogden for our third consecutive year, and we’re here today to guide you through your upcoming run.

Ogden Marathon Map

The Ogden Marathon starts at an elevation of 5,400 feet. Depending upon where you live and train, this shouldn’t be high enough to present a problem to your race, especially since the course drops throughout the race. At the same time, don’t be shocked (or nervous) if the air feels just a little thinner up at the start. The chilly desert temperatures, combined with nerves and that bit of altitude, can be just enough to worry you.  We promise there’s no need; once your race gets going, you’ll settle in to your breathing pattern and start dropping down those hills.
