What Are the Top Running Cities in Utah?
Salt Lake City Area Running Routes
Salt Lake City is a largely populated area of the state. Even still, running in Salt Lake City can be beautiful. The city has many beautiful parks and canyons to run through, as well as several historical sites within the city that are also popular areas for taking a run through town.

Park City is a big skiing town with ski hills and cross country trails all throughout. The great thing about this winter hub, is that during the summer season, those trails make for great running paths. There are many trail races and opportunities within the Park City Area all throughout the warm months.
Layton & Ogden Area Running Routes
Layton and Ogden cities both butt up to a mountainous region that provides amazing running trails with beautiful views. There are less college students in the area than other cities like Salt Lake and Provo, which means you’ll likely find runners that have been running for years.
Logan Area Running Routes
Logan is a northern city in Utah that is really close to the neighboring state of Idaho. The city itself is more rural that many other cities in the Utah Valley, there are beautiful farmlands with horses and gorgeous views. The mountain area provides for a beautiful canyon full of running trails.
