About The Antelope Island Marathon
The Antelope Island Marathon is one of the best half marathons in the United States. It takes place on 6 October, 2023 in Syracuse, Utah and offers runners an unforgettable experience. The course is a beautiful loop that winds through some of the most stunning scenery Utah has to offer.
The route starts at Great Salt Lake State Park and meanders around Antelope Island, with incredible views of mountains, forested areas, and wide open plains. Along the way you’ll pass by historic buildings as well as modern structures from nearby towns like Ogden and Layton. At certain points along the route you can catch glimpses of wildlife such as bison or antelope roaming free across this unique landscape.
October in northern Utah typically brings mild temperatures during daylight hours but can dip significantly during early morning hours; so be sure to wear layers for your run! During peak times for this event there’s usually a moderate number of spectators out cheering on participants which makes it even more enjoyable.
One special thing about running this race is that all finishers receive a custom-designed medal made exclusively for those who complete their 13-mile journey around Antelope Island—a great reminder of an amazing experience! There are also cash prizes available for top finishers in each category as well as awards given out to age group winners after completion of the race.
All things considered, running the Antelope Island Marathon should definitely be added to your bucket list if you’re looking for an unforgettable half marathon experience!
