The 5th Annual Skyline Mountain Marathon


No crowds, no rock bands, no support vans, no pre-race expo, no whiners, this is the Skyline Mountain Marathon. You will experience mind-blowing views, earn bragging rights, run on mountains peaks and experience all the highs and lows of a marathon in the skies. Part of the proceeds will benefit Ogden Nordic.All told, it’s nearly a mile each of vertical ascent and descent. Don’t believe us? Check out the MAP.

If you run fast enough, you could also earn some sweet swag and prizes from our generous Sponsors, maybe even something you can sell to pay your medical bills. 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, and a T-shirt. Sign up for the Skyline Mountain Marathon, click the Register tab and voluntarily commit yourself. Still not convinced? You’re probably scared. We don’t blame you.
