Informazioni Mesa Falls Marathon

Nestled at the southern edge of the Yellowstone Caldera, is the small, rural community of Ashton, Idaho. Known as the "World’s Largest Seed Producing Area", Ashton has much more to offer both travelers and residents alike. Within easy driving distance to world-renowned attractions including Yellowstone National Park, Grand Teton National Park, Mesa Falls and Henry’s Fork of the Snake River, Ashton welcomes nearly two million visitors each year as they travel through our area.

Resting at the junction of two Scenic Byways – Mesa Falls Scenic Byway and Teton Scenic Byway – all roads leading in to and out of Ashton are avenues of majestic scenic beauty. The numerous mountains, lakes, rivers, meandering streams, lush forests and open meadows draw sightseers and sportsmen year round.

With that being said, the Mesa Fall Marathon is the place to be!!

The Mesa Falls Marathon and Half Marathon races are point to point courses that begin in the Targhee National Forest near the headwaters of the Warm River and end in the city of Ashton, Idaho. The 10k, 5k and 1 mile races start and end in Ashton City Park.

Medaglie

All finishers in both races will receive a finisher’s medallion. We award a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishing plaque, in five year age categories, in the Full Marathon, and the Half Marathon, Men and Women divisions.The age group breakdown goes as follows, 10 to 14 -15 to 19 - 20 to 24 - 25 to 29 - 30 to 34 - 35 to 39 , and so on. We also award four Masters runners, one for each race. That being said, we won't double dip on winners. The first place finisher in either race, or gender, regardless of age, is the overall winner, and will be awarded the first place trophy. If they happen to be a masters age runner, then the Masters plaque would then go to the second runner over forty in either race or gender. If the masters runner does happen to finish in the top three of his age group, the next three finishing runners would then be awarded 1st, 2nd, and 3rd.That also holds true for our four overall winners. Whatever age group they are in, they receive the overall winner plaque, and the next three finishers are awarded 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. We appreciate all of our runners, and want to award as many of them as possible for their effort.

Tempo massimo

There are no cutoff times for runners in either race. The course will remain open and race staff will remain at the finish area until the last runner has finished.

Attrattive

The Mesa Falls Marathon and Half Marathon races are point to point courses that begin in the Targhee National Forest near the headwaters of the Warm River and end in the city of Ashton, Idaho. Due to our geographic location and proximity to Yellowstone National Park, a wide variety of wildlife reside in the area including elk, deer, moose, bison, cougars, wolves, and bears. The race committee makes every attempt to clear the race course of unofficial entries prior to the race. However, recognizing that wildlife may not always follow our course rules, there may be four-legged “bandits” on the course at any point. Runners are reminded to use caution if and when encountering wild animals. Please give elk, deer, moose, and bison the right of way—they are bigger than you! If a bear or cougar are spotted, just remember that you don’t want to be the first runner—nor the last!
