Salt Lake City Marathon runners don’t need to fight traffic on the way to the big race. Participants can ride TRAX free of charge on Saturday, April 20. The marathon will not impact TRAX schedules, but will affect selected bus routes until 1 p.m. For a list of routes impacted by the marathon, click here.
Runners can board the Red Line at any stop beginning at 4:09 a.m. and ride TRAX for free to the marathon start line. Runners need only show their bibs to board the train. Family members and friends will need to purchase their own fare if they wish to accompany marathon participants. The Salt Lake City Marathon will be offering shuttle rides from the finish line back to TRAX.
In light of the Boston Marathon tragedy, UTA will be increasing security for Saturday’s event. Riders who see any suspicious activity should call 801-287-EYES.
This is the 10th year that the Salt Lake City Marathon has been held. The marathon starts at the University of Utah and winds its way through Sugarhouse, Holladay, and Murray before ending in Liberty Park.
