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.
