ENDURANCE SPORTS SUMMIT & VALKYRIE MULTISPORT RELAY

JUNE 18, 2022 – Soldier Hollow Nordic Center

EXPO

Returning June 18, 2022, the Endurance Sports Summit is an all-day event that coincides with the Valkyrie Relay Race. The Summit brings together manufacturers, retailers, coaches, educators, and event companies, in an expo-style setting. Our goal is to have everyone involved in the endurance community together in one venue to exchange training ideas, learn about endurance-related products and plan out their event calendars for the next year, and to spend a day as a team participating in the Valkyrie Multi-Sport Relay. Relay Racers, Marathoners and Half Marathoners will conclude their races at Soldier Hollow Nordic Center in Midway Utah at the Endurance Sports Summit.

VALKYRIE MULTISPORT RELAY

The Valkyrie Relay is Utah’s only multi-sport stage race, spanning over 100 miles of Utah’s spectacular ‘Wasatch Back’ mountain range. The event pits teams of up to 9 specialized competitors, each racing against the clock and transitioning between trail running, kayak/canoe paddling, marathon, mountain biking, stand-up paddle boarding, open water swimming, and road cycling.

HEBER VALLEY MARATHON & HALF 

The Heber Valley Marathon & Half, the Valhalla 5K Run/Walk & Pursuit Race, and the Valkyrie Multisport Relay are all part of the Endurance Sports Summit lineup of events. The marathon and half marathon are stand-alone races held concurrently with the Valkyrie Multisport Relay.

The Heber Valley Marathon is a free race to the public, but racers must donate a minimum of $26.2 to a local nonprofit organization. For those participating in the half marathon a $13.1 donation is required to participate, and those participating in the 5K a $5 donation is required. Our goal for the marathon is to raise a minimum of $26,200 each year for local nonprofit organizations.

The ability to operate this race is due in part to a generous grant from the Wasatch Community Foundation and the Endurance Sports Summit. The mission of Wasatch Community Foundation is to advance the well-being of all Wasatch County residents by uniting community resources and programs through our different pillars. The mission of Wasatch Community Foundation Recreation Pillar is to provide stewardship of the county’s natural, cultural, and historical resources while fostering the needs of both residents and visitors for recreational pursuits. We aim to enrich the quality of life for our residents by providing a variety of recreation activities, parks and facilities that promote health, wellness, and fun for all ages.

If you have an organization or group that would benefit from being part of the fundraising efforts of this race please contact us at info@hebervalleymarathon.com

VALHALLA “5-DOLLAR 5K” RUN/WALK

The Valhalla 5-Dollar 5K is a fundraiser event for our non-profit partner, the Wasatch Community Foundation. It consists of two 1.55 mi laps within Soldier Hollow Nordic Center, circumnavigating the Endurance Sports Summit and Valkyrie Multisport Relay / Heber Valley Marathon & Half Finish Line. Each lap runs on pavement and some gravel road with 125 ft in elevation gain for a total of 250 ft. The Start, Lap, and Finish Lines are  co-located with the Valkyrie and Tour of Heber Valley Finish Line.

VALHALLA PURSUIT

The Pursuit is a companion race to the 5K using your fastest 5K lap time to stagger your start BEHIND slower 5K competitors who will start ahead of you. The start is staggered according to REVERSED position based on each runner’s best lap time during the 5K. To win, overtake the field in front of you, resulting in a mass finish instead of a mass start. The Pursuit is a single lap sprint on the 5K course (1.55 mi). Only runners who compete in the 5K may sign up for the Pursuit. To register please sign up for the 5K.

GEAR SWAP

Returning June 18, 2022, the Endurance Sports Gear Swap is an opportunity for our participants to get rid of the summer gear they don’t plan to use in the next race season and also an opportunity to find new gear for the upcoming winter season. You can drop off your road bike and leave with a new pair of skate skis, or sell your wet suit and find a new fat bike. The Gear Swap is also a great place for our vendors to close out their inventory from the summer season.

You can choose to drop off your gear on the day of the event or you can pre-register your gear online to be listed on our site for pre-sale and have it sold before you even drop it off. All auction items must be picked up at the Endurance Sports Summit.

KIDS RACES

Launching at the Summit 2022, participants will also be able to take part in fun events for kids like inflatables, running and cycling races, etc.

FOOD & BEVERAGE
