Top of Utah 2 The 2010 Top of Utah Marathon is on September 18, 2010.  The course drops around 1045 ft. starting at around 5560 ft and ending around 4515 ft.  The grade is only a 1% to 2% and shouldn’t beat up your legs too bad.  Of course it is a marathon so for me the grade matters but my legs are going to be beat up even if the grade is a slight downhill.  We are all signed up for this event.

The course  starts at Hardware Ranch Elk Refuge and runs through the Blacksmith Fork Canyon into Cache Valley and ends in downtown Logan.  The leaves on the trees should be changing color but the weather this time of the year in Logan is generally good for running except for in 2000 when they got some snow.  I’d be great with some cooler weather.  Cooler, DRY weather.

Top of Utah 1One thing to consider, if you sign up for the half marathon it is actually set for a different weekend.  It is on August 28, 2010.
