Interest and enthusiasm for Utah’s running terrain is currently expanding and growing at a rapid rate. Running enthusiasts currently come from all over the world to experience the unique running possibilities in Utah. The state has three unique geological regions, namely The Rocky Mountains, The Colorado Plateau and The Great Basin. Running competitions take place in Moab, Bryce Canyon, Zion, Canyonlands, as well as cities along the Wasatch Mountains, including: Provo, Salt Lake City, Ogden, and Logan. Runners have the ability to take advantage of canyons, valleys, deserts, plains and mountains. At this point, almost every city in Utah hosts its own races, whether it is a small local race, 5K, running race or Utah marathon.
