In 2017 we redrew the Layton Marathon course and in so doing it realized that it needed a new name of the Antelope Island Marathon. This race is 100% on Antelope Island or the causeway. Antelope Island is home to 600 Bison(Buffalo), Big Horn Sheep, 400 species of bird and is in the center of the Great Salt Lake. With this new course the Half Marathon, 10K and 5K will also be able to take part of the beauty on Antelope Island. October is the perfect time of the year for this race because all the bugs are dormate due to the cooler temps.
Full Marathon - Run the causeway then the island. This course is fairly flat with some rolling hills. The race finishes at the Marina.
Half Marathon - Bused out start down by Garr Fielding Ranch running back along the island passing Buffalo and other Wildlife. This course then turns right and loops around the backside of the island to see the Westside of the Great Salt Lake and finishing at the Marina.
10K - Starts at the Marina and runs up the causeway a bit then back then does a loop around North part of the island. Great views of the larger solo buffalo and finishes at the Marina
5K - Starts at Marina and runs backwards on the west side of the island. Out and back. Great chance to run near the solo buffalo.
Take Antelope Exit on I-15 then go West around 20 miles to Antelope Ialand. At the Island look for the marina which is where the start is for 3 courses and the bus loading area for the Half Marathon.
