Antelope Island Marathon
The Layton Marathon was established in 2010. This race starts on Antelope Island, the largest island on the Great Salt Lake, and runs 10 miles across the island which is home to 600 bison (American Buffalo), mule deer, and hundreds of other wild life. After 10 miles on the island the race crosses a 7 mile causeway that spans the Great Salt Lake at which time it meets up with the Half Marathon course on the causeway. After the causeway the remaining 9 miles are a combination of farmlands and residential homes finishing on the West side of Layton City.
