The marathon starts at North Fork Park, in Liberty Utah. North Fork Park is located in the shadow of Ben Lomond Peak in Ogden Valley. The Half Marathon, or Half +1 as we like to call it because it is 14.1 miles, will start at the top of the North Ogden Divide. The marathon course starts with a 6 mile climb up the Ben Lomond trail, to the ridge line where it will connect to the Skyline trail. From there runners will head southeast toward the North Ogden Divide, the start line of the Half. From
the North Ogden Divide the course will point uphill again and painful up it is. In a little more that 2.5 mile you will climb 1625 ft. The course follows the Southern Skyline Trail to the Wind Surfer Beach where it will connect to the Pineview trail and follow the shoreline of Beautiful Pineview Reservoir. The finish line will be located in the heart of Eden Utah at the Eden Park.
Run Your Trail Off
On September 28th, 2013, Zoe Sports will host its first 5K trail run/walk fundraiser at Maples Trail located at Snowbasin Resort Company. Registration begins at 8 am, and set groups will start the trail race at 9 am. Run Your Trail Off will raise vital funds for the Brain Injury Alliance of Utah, a non profit organization whose profits go to children and veterans with brain injuries. The profits are needed to help provide information and resources to survivors, family awareness, prevention programs, and individuals returning to work.
US National A team Snowboarder, Paralympic hopeful, and local athlete, Keith Grizzly Gabel has enthusiastically committed to support the fundraiser and share his inspiring story and sign autographs.
