About Little Grand Canyon Marathon

The Little Grand Canyon is considered to be one of the hidden treasures of the world!

The only running event that takes participants through the Wedge Overlook area of eastern Utah’s San Rafael Swell, also known as the "Little Grand Canyon," this marathon offers up some of the Southwest’s most pristine natural beauty including Utah’s majestic towering red rocks, which tell the geological timetable as runners pass through the Jurassic, Triassic and Cretaceous periods.

There are actual dinosaur footprints on the side of the road and during the race runners also will make their way past one of the largest Native American pictograph panels found anywhere in Utah, also known as the Buckhorn Panel. 

Due to its exclusive location and the multiple paleontological and archeological vistas (and the fact that the San Rafael Swell is considered one of the world’s great hidden treasures), this is the only run of its kind, and is definitely for the runner that enjoys the tranquility and beauty of running in an outback-like environment.

Experience the great scenery the canyon has to offer while running in this Boston Qualifier!
