While you’re here, enjoy Jackson’s vibrant food and art scene, sample some of the best craft breweries in the country, and explore endless open space in the Bridger-Teton National Forest, and Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks.

In addition to the in-person events in September 2022, they are offering virtual races as well. You’ll get your shirt, bib, and finisher medal sent to you and you can run your race where ever you choose.

Marathon Course Description

The Jackson Hole Marathon course starts near Jackson Town Square’s famous elk antler arches. The first four miles take you past the beautiful views of the National Elk Refuge, through the neighborhoods of east Jackson, and along the base of Snow King Mountain before you separate from the road and hop on the pedestrians-only pathway network and head out of town limits. 

For the next nine miles, you’ll be heading around South Park Loop, and enjoying majestic views of the Jackson Hole Valley, the Tetons, and probably at least a couple of horses.

At about mile 14, you’ll be turning west on the pathway along Highway 22. As you near mile 17, you’re in for a treat as you cross the Snake River and enjoy some of the best views of the day (selfie time!).

Between miles 18 and 20, you’ll be looping through the quaint-quirky town of Wilson and then you’re heading north toward the Grand Teton and the Finish Line. Next stop: the elk antler arch finish line in Teton Village. 

99.6% of the course is run on paved roads and/or paved pathways, but the last .1 mi into the Finish Line is on grass. Please, no whining. See the course map below. DOWNLOAD MAP

Half Marathon Course Description

The course starts at the Presbyterian Church of Jackson Hole, spends the first .5 miles running through quiet neighborhood streets, and then joins the Marathon course on the Jackson Community Pathway System for the remainder of the race.

At about mile 1.5, you’ll be turning west on the pathway along Highway 22. As you near mile 3.5, you’re in for a treat as you cross the Snake River and enjoy some of the best views of the day (selfie time!).

Between miles 5 and 7, you’ll be looping through the quaint-quirky town of Wilson and then you’re heading north toward the Grand Teton and the Finish Line. Next stop: the elk antler arch finish line in Teton Village. 

99.6% of the course is run on paved roads and/or paved pathways, but the last .1 mi into the Finish Line is on grass. Please, no whining. See the course map below. DOWNLOAD MAP

Quarter Marathon Course Description

The Quarter Marathon will start at the Village Road Transit Center/Stilson Lot and will join the Marathon and Half Marathon course heading north on the Jackson Community Pathway System to Teton Village, finishing on the Village Commons. Note: the last .1 miles of the course are on grass (and are slightly uphill), but then there’s beer so you’ll make it. DOWNLOAD MAP
