The Jackson Hole Marathon and The Hole Half-Marathon courses are USATF certified (Marathon = WY16001TK for 2016; The Hole Half = WY16002TKfor 2016).
Both courses are run over paved roads and pathways and were certified in July 2016 (and may be re-certified for 2017 with the completion of a new section of bike path). The finish line includes a tenth of a mile of grass with a slight uphill. Yes, it will be fun and different and worth it!!! (Why the grass? Because the finish location in the Village Commons at Teton Village is awesome and we cannot lay down asphalt in this location. Don’t worry, all participants will have to cover the same section.)
The Full Marathon course has an elevation gain of 522ft and an elevation loss of 511ft. The Hole Half-Marathon course has an elevation gain of 229ft and an elevation loss of 166ft. Official, printable maps can be found below. See below for aid station cut-off times.
