The GOAL Foundation, producers of the Ogden Marathon, is excited to announce that the 2022 America First Ogden Marathon, which will take place on May 21, 2022, will be back to a live, in-person event.

The Ogden Marathon, which will celebrate its 21st year this May, was canceled due to the pandemic in 2020. In 2021, over 3,000 athletes participated in the Virtual Ogden Marathon across the country and throughout the world. The GOAL Foundation is very excited to announce that the 2022 Ogden Marathon will return to its original live, in-person format and will continue to offer a virtual run option as well.

This year’s Ogden Marathon will offer traditional distances including a full marathon, half marathon, 5k and Relay, as well as a new 12k distance. We are excited to offer the new 12k distance which will start near The Oaks in Ogden Canyon and end at our world class finish line at 25th Street and Grant Avenue. Registration for all distances is open. We look forward to celebrating with our athletes, volunteers, community partners, and everyone involved this May.

“We are excited to partner with the Ogden Marathon to demonstrate our enthusiasm for the outdoors,” said Thayne Shaffer, president and CEO of America First Credit Union, the event’s presenting sponsor.
