Utah Marathon Comparison Question

Question: “Do you do clinics for coaches?”

Answer: UtahRunning.com does not currently host any clinics for coaches, but it is definitely something we have planned for the near future. We will keep you posted.


Question: “How does Utah Valley Marathon compare to St. George Marathon in terms of speed of finishers?”


Rocky Mountain Running and Triathlon Magazine had a great article in their January 2010 issue that compared several marathons in our region, including the St. George and the Utah Valley Marathon. It was titled, “Regional Marathon Comparison Guide”. If you check around you may still be able to find a copy, but below are some of the highlights. This data is based off of 2009 race results. Keep in mind that the 2010 Utah Valley Marathon course has been altered and is claiming to be faster than in previous years.

    This is some good info, thanks!

    I just crunched the numbers from the results of the UVM 2010 and their new course is definitely faster than 2009. The averages for the age groups were about the same as STG 2009, though slightly slower. Granted, the weather might have had an effect. The winning times were also about the same. I’m excited to see what happens in future years!
