Heber Valley Marathon, Half, 5K, and Pursuit 

Race Information

The Heber Valley Marathon & Half, a USATF certified course, course pays homage to Utah’s celebrated Central Wasatch. Marathon and Half. The race begins at Jordanelle Reservoir and travels through the Heber Valley ending and the Soldier Hollow Nordic Center, the location of the Endurance Sports Summit and finish line for the Valkyrie Multisport Relay and Valhalla 5K.

Marathon runners compete on the comparatively cool, scenic highways and country roads of Wasatch County, Midway, and Heber City, Utah. The first half of the full Marathon is a capricious B-line to Midway town center, pairing a 646 ft climb with a 1083 ft descent. The second half (also the Half Marathon) meanders through the tree-lined neighborhoods and past green pastures of Midway and Heber City before arriving at Soldier Hollow Nordic Center (SHNC) and Finish Line at the Endurance Sports Summit.

5K

The 5K event is a fundraiser event for Valkyrie-affiliated non-profits. It consists of two 1.55 mi laps within Soldier Hollow Nordic Center, circumnavigating the Endurance Sports Summit and Valkyrie Multisport Relay / Tour of Heber Valley Finish Line. Each lap runs on pavement and some gravel road with 125 ft in elevation gain for a total of 250 ft. The Start, Lap, and Finish Lines are the same and co-located with the Valkyrie and Tour of Heber Valley Finish Line.
