The Salt Lake Marathon was a success! (about: 2004)|
D. N. from SLC, Utah (4/25/04)
4-5 previous marathons
| 1 Salt Lake City Marathon
Luckily the day was nice - I don't know how it would have been with rain - so we enjoyed perfect running temperatures. For being the first time this race was run, a surprising amount of people lined the streets to cheer! It seemed like half the city was out there! The course was a good one, with a few hills up and down but nothing major. I was surprised by how great the stuff was after the finish line (the Galivan Center). They had nice medals and lots of food, though not quite the variety I've seen in other marathons. They had Gatorade and water every couple of miles and Cliff Shots at a few stations along the way, so I had plenty of fuel. In all, this was a successful marathon.
