2018 Gib Wallace Memorial Trail Races
Saturday May 5th, 2018
We are honored to host the 4th Annual Gib Wallace Memorial Trail Races. Gib Wallace has been instrumental in designing, developing, constructing and maintaining our wonderful trails network and can be considered one of the “Fathers of Ogden Trails”.
2018 will have two awesome races: a 4 miler and a 10 miler
4 Mile Course Description: Beginning at Mt Ogden park, run south on single track and double track that parallel the golf course until you reach the 36th street trailhead. From 36th street TH run East on a short section of singletrack and then a short section of service road until you take a right on a singletrack connector trail that will roll over to the Discovery Trail. Take a left and climb the 4 steps and run the Discovery Loop. After completing the Discovery Loop you retrace your route back to the runners expo at Mt. Ogden park.
We will have the course marked with pink ribbon, trail signs, and volunteers.
Race Starts at 5:10 PM on Saturday May 5th, 2018
Elevation Gain: 530 feet of climbing
Entry Cap: 200 Runners
Race Day Check In and Registration: Starts at 4:00 pm at Mt. Ogden Park South Pavilion. We cannot guarantee a t-shirt for those who register day of the race.
Gib Wallace 10 Mile Trail Race
To celebrate Ogden’s rad urban trails we are adding in a challenging 10 mile trail race to the Ogden Trail Running Festival weekend. The combination of course length, climbing, and technical terrain in Beus canyon will make an ideal challenge for both the speedsters and the grinders.
The course will be marked with pink ribbon and critical intersections will be manned by course marshals. We will provide a water only aid station at the Beus Canyon TH.
Each runner must check in at the Beus Canyon aid station. If you fail to check in at the Beus Canyon AS you will be disqualified and not eligible for the cash prizes or sponsor donated prizes/raffle items.

Direction to Start/Finish Area For 4miler and 10miler
Mt. Ogden Park is located at 3144 Taylor Ave, Ogden, UT 84403. When you look at Google maps you’ll see that you will be traveling on Harrison Blvd (aka SR 203). Turn onto 32nd street and head East towards the mountains and you’ll run right into the park. The Start/Finish area is at the south end of the park next to a playground and a pavilion. Please park on the road, we want to keep the parking lot open to the general public who wish to use the park.

No Refunds. Because expenses in a race like this are generally incurred early, we will not be offering refunds for participants who drop out, change their mind or get a little scared. If the race is cancelled because of conditions beyond our control, we reserve the right to retain the entire balance of the entry fee. Thank you for your understanding.
