Utah Grand Slam
The Utah Grand Slam is administered by the Wasatch Running Center
The 2016 Utah Grand Slam is four marathons, plus an alternate for those who must miss one of the four. This is a competition, so those who want to compete for the top three trophies and age-group awards, you will need to run the four designated marathons.
Age groups for the Grand Slam are in decades; 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69.
(Age Groups for the Utah Valley Marathon are 14 & under, 15-18, 19-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, and 70 & Over)

Other 2015 Utah Grand Slam Information
In recognition for completing the Grand Slam all will be awarded a hefty 2015 Grand Slam medal and a very cool UGS2015 tech t-shirt. All awards will be bestowed at a ceremony after the St. George Marathon. Ogden, Utah Valley offer a $5 discount on registration.
You are responsible for registering for each marathon by the deadlines of those organizations. Entry to the St. George Marathon is for registered Slammers who did not make it in the lottery and have completed the previous required marathons. All Slammers still must enter the St. George Marathon lottery.
After each marathon, we will contact two Slammers who completed that particular marathon and let them know that they have won a pair of shoes from the footwear sponsor of that leg of the Slam (You cannot trade them for another brand, they gave them, you get to wear them or give them to a friend. Please support our sponsors.). And, post-race schwag bags will be better than ever so be sure to find us after each marathon (Sorry, first come, first serve. We don’t have enough schwag for every Slammer so… Run Fast!). Please pick up your own schwag bag, letting your Slammer friends who have not yet finished pick up theirs. Remember, all registered participants will receive 15% off their MSRP purchases at the Wasatch Running Center throughout the Grand Slam season. If you don’t take advantage of the discount it is your own choice! We do what we can to support your running addiction.
If you are unable to complete all of the four Grand Slam events you will not be eligible to receive the medal or T-shirts. Also, we will not be able to recommend your entry into the St George Marathon.
