Deseret News Classic


Deseret News Classic logo

The Deseret News Classic is Utah’s oldest road race, and it’s held in the pre-dawn hours every July 24. Start your Pioneer Day day of right by running the marathon, half marathon, 10K, or 5K then stick around after to catch Utah’s biggest parade. The courses are beautiful, and you can’t beat running past the crowds amassed along the parade route! The 10K is Utah’s fastest and most competitive, and there’s prize money on the line for Utah locals!
