Researching marathons in Utah. Ogden looks like a user friendly course with a lot of beauty. My main concern is going from Illinois to Salt Lake City. Not sure about elevation being a problem but when I visited last April I recall some of the Utah air was a little thin. I have a ton of work to do either way.


People respond to elevation differently.

I run at my mom's place in Las Cruces, N.M. (~4,000) and don't feel much of a difference. But the elevation in Prescott, AZ (~5,500) really beats me up. You wouldn't think just ~1,500 feet would make that much of a difference.

I'd try to get there 2 to 3 days before the race to acclimatize.

Have you thought about this one? http://www.utahvalleymarathon.com/

It's crazy fast.

Yeah I saw that one. It was a little hard to sort all the Utah ones out. Fast is good, but too much decrease in elevation (St George?) could also be tough on the legs in a different way.

I'm also possibly interested in Mount Desert Island in Maine as I've always wanted to visit Acadia. The idea is if I travel in part to run I would HAVE to follow through but need to really build a base up this winter first and foremost.

Honestly, Verb, i know im not as big of a runner as you but I have spent the last 17 years of my life utilizing running as a large chunk of my fitness routines.

Elevation makes a huge difference. You will feel it. Im not sure 2-3 days of acclimation will be enough. Of course everyone is different but even the best athletes can fall victim to elevation.

Its not like going from Sea Level to 9,000' but it should be a concern for you. Id maybe even take a trip well before hand to see how you acclimate on your runs before deciding whether or not to do it.

Also, Ogden isn't far from SLC right? Isn't SLC having some severe air quality concerns lately?

Yeah I love Utah and will be back there at various points in the future but I think the soon to be wife and I are going to book some travel plans for Maine this October instead. Shes pretty excited about renting a yurt near Acadia she found online. If im feeling good and have earned it I can sign up for Mount Desert Island.

Verb, you won't feel much of a difference at ~4,000 feet. Most research shows you lose ~2% off your VO2 Max for every 1,000 feet above sea level until you hit about 7,000 feet, then it gets more severe. At 4,000 feet on a flat course you can expect a 30 sec. to a minute slower finish time for a 10K.

Considering how fast most of the courses are for the big Utah marathons, I wouldn't worry about it.

Lots of flatlanders go up there for big PRs.

I did 6.4 in 33 min last night. killed it. that was in the snow and it was raining. but I still think my run on Friday would have topped that if I would not have got that knot in my shoe.

here's all anyone needs to know. man up. if you're injured, stretch a lot and allow some recovery time if needed. push. get better. altitude is something I would think about if I wasn't really into competing but was into excuses. just fucking run. and also, and I might be wrong on this, but as my upper body strength improves my overall running technique improves.

This thread and the strata group are companion pieces. You can't really appreciate on without also being part of the other.
