Boston Qualifiers on Utah Valley Marathon Course Are Rewarded
All athletes that complete our marathon with a time that would qualify for the Boston Marathon will receive a Utah Valley Marathon shirt that says “Boston Qualifier”. This shirt is a free reward to those that complete the Utah Valley Marathon under the indicated standards at the bottom of the page. These shirts will be awarded at the finish area of the marathon. Please help us know when you have qualified. We will try our best to just know when you have qualified, but there are many different standards with different ages, so please make sure we give you the shirt if you earn it.

The USATF Certification number for the Utah Valley Marathon is UT13009GAN. This number will be needed when signing up to run the Boston Marathon.
Each and every year the Utah Valley Marathon brings people their person record times which of course helps in the efforts to qualify for the Boston Marathon. In fact we have created a PR Bell that participants are encouraged to ring in the finish area when they run their PR. Not only are you going to set your PR on this fast course, but you will hear that bell ringing constantly. Come run with us this June and be sure to ring the bell after you set your personal best time!
