Utah Grand Slam
The Utah Grand Slam is administered by the Wasatch Running Center
The 2017 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 2017 Utah Grand Slam Information
In recognition for completing the Grand Slam all will be awarded a hefty Grand Slam medal and a very cool UGS 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, two Slammers will be contacted 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.). All registered participants will receive 15% off their MSRP purchases at the Wasatch Running Center throughout the Grand Slam season.
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, they will not be able to recommend your entry into the St George Marathon.
