Ah - should have waited one more second before posting. :)

Why don't they change the course and make a layout around the city? Going up and down a canyon is crazy! It's not a marathon course that will attract the top runners.

Umm...I'm pretty sure the REAL runners will be attracted to the marathon because of the difficulty of the course.

Leave the race the way it is. It has meaning.

If you want to run a marathon around the city, run the SL marathon in April.

King View--Umm...yeah, right. That's why, of all the Utah marathons, DesNews has the fewest entrants. Every year. I don't think the course should necessarily be changed (although it has been changed in the past--because it was even more difficult; guess it didn't attract enough 'real' runners, eh?), but please, 'real runners'? Define a 'real runner' for us, will ya?
