Morgan Valley Marathon & Half-Marathon, 10K, 5K

Location: Morgan, Utah, USA
Date: Saturday, July 30, 2016


The Morgan Valley Marathon takes place just above 5000 feet in Morgan Valley, Utah. The course is rural and beautiful -- with green farmland graced by a backdrop of mountain tops all around. Runners also get to see the sunrise given the early start time. The course is a loop, with the start and finish at the Morgan Fairgrounds. The marathon event is fairly small, with about 100 runners, but runners also show up for the half marathon, 10k, and 5k, which make for a great atmosphere.

Race Review: Morgan Valley Marathon - Aug 1, 2016

A shooting star, a skunk, some angry dogs, a beautiful sunrise, verdant farms, goats, little rolling hills, magnificent mountains in every direction, great organization: these were some of the things that made the Morgan Valley Marathon a memorable event that I would happily do again.
