To our athletes, volunteers, law enforcement, firefighters, medical professionals, government officials, vendors, bus drivers, spectators, community partners and sponsors, you have supported the Ogden Marathon and made this incredible event possible for the last 19 years. Over the years you have pulled together, rain or shine, to shape and unite our community and build an event that has become so much more than a marathon. You have given your time and rolled up your sleeves to make memories that define our community. This year would have been the 20th year of the Ogden Marathon and now, it is our turn to give back to YOU. It is our turn to honor YOU and recognize that as much as we would all love to celebrate together, the environment right now just does not allow for it.
The best way that we can honor you is to ensure the safety and health of everyone involved. Our team has worked incredibly hard over the past few months speaking with community partners, other race directors and state and local health department officials. After considering every scenario it became clear that it would not be possible to produce the Ogden Marathon in 2020 while ensuring the safety of over 20,000 people and providing an exceptional event experience. It is with an exceptionally heavy heart that we announce the cancellation of the 2020 Ogden Marathon.
