Scenic and Fast Big Cottonwood Marathon & Half Marathon

Big Cottonwood Marathon and Half Participant Video from BrooksEE on Vimeo.

As marathoners we are always looking for the fastest course that we might be able to qualify for the Boston Marathon. Naturally, we look for legal advantages everywhere we can to make that happen, one of those being a fast course.

One of the fastest marathon courses currently is the Big Cottonwood Marathon and 1/2 Marathon in Salt Lake City, Utah. The race takes place on September 14, 2013.

The marathon starts at 9,700 feet of elevation and gradually unwinds downhill the entire way to 4,400 feet at the finish. That makes a 5,300 ft overall net loss/drop.

The half marathon starts at 7,200 feet of elevation and drops to 4,400 feet at the finish. Approximately 2,800 ft of elevation loss over 13.1 miles.

The video above shows Big Cottonwood to be a very scenic and beautiful race.

We get offers for discounts for Run It Fast – The Club to many races across the country but rarely post or share them unless we believe it’s a good race, good value, and will be a lot of fun. This one passes all of those tests.

Big Cottonwood is offering a discount to Run It Fast-Club members. Check your email or the Facebook Run It Fast-Club Group for more info on this discount or email us.

From the Big Cottonwood RD Josh Rohatinsky:

Extremely fast course, Boston-qualifier, beautiful rocky mountain canyon with leaves changing colors, free race photos and personalized videos to all our participants, awesome medals, shirts, and swag, etc. In fact, one thing we’ve done that gets a lot of play is share an example of the personalized videos we gave to all our participants last year. You can check it out at the link below and fee free to include it in your post.

Let me know if there’s anything else you need, and we’ll get cranking. Happy to have you guys joining us this September – you’re going to love it!
