Located in beautiful Ogden Valley, the Skyline Mountain Marathon starts in Liberty and ends in Eden. These names alone give you a sense of what you will be apart of, and accomplish, when you come run the Skyline. However, be warned, this mountain run is not for the faint of heart or legs. With almost 5000 ft in climbing and more in descent, your legs will definitely be pushed to levels they prefer not to go.
Many runners have said that the Skyline “is the most beautiful marathon in Utah”, but then quickly add, with the same smile on their face, “but for sure the most difficult”. We agree with this fully. If you love high alpine trails, wild life, good company, and views that go on and on, this is the event for you.
On the other hand, if you are looking for loud crowds to cheer you on, a course with aid stations every ten ft, or your marathon or half marathon PR, this is probably not the race you are looking for. But hey, no problem, there are hundreds of other events out there, just like each other, for you to choose from. So, if that is what you are looking for, our space is limited, please leave the spot for someone who appreciates a real challenge. Bring on the trails!
Along the way you’ll be privileged to run with other crazies just like yourself, as well as mountain goats, moose, deer, porcupines (watch your step) and more. You’ll also be privy to stunning views of the sane residents of Salt Lake (to the south) and Idaho (to the north). Go ahead and take in the view…you’ve earned it. But don’t stay up there all day—this race is going to take you a while to finish (think normal marathon finish time, plus an hour…maybe two).
If you run fast enough, you could also earn some sweet swag and prizes from our generous sponsors. Including up to $1000 for first place. But everyone that runs is a winner, of course, and everyone leaves with something for their trouble, including wrecked quads, trashed knees, some grub at the end, oh and a Salomon Tech T. You’re welcome . You’re also guaranteed to leave with the inexplicable feeling that you’ll be back next year.
So sign up for the Skyline Mountain Marathon. This race will free your mind and, if run correctly, liberate your breakfast from your stomach.
