The challenging Run with the Horses Marathon course is run on mainly improved, graded dirt roads.
The course starts at Expedition Island at an elevation of 6,100 feet. The first two miles are run on paved city streets and the paved Green belt along the river. The route then travels on the Flaming Gorge Way, turns onto Wild Horse Canyon Road where the course surface changes to graded dirt road.
Once on the Wild Horse Canyon Road, runners climb up the canyon for 2 miles to the top of White Mountain at 7,300 feet. Runners then continue along the rolling hills up the elevations of 7,500 feet. The course then returns to the start/finish line.
The elevation of the course is between 6,000 - 7,500 feet which may cause challenges for some runners.
The Run with the Horses Marathon was the 561st largest marathon in the U.S. last year and was the 509th largest in 2014.
