October weather in South Jordan is cool and crisp in the morning. Average high temperatures are in the mid-60’s with average low temperatures in the low 40’s. Because the races are early morning and runners are running east into the sun, we recommend sunglasses, hats and/or visors. Although the weather is generally pleasant, participants should prepare for all weather conditions.

For any other questions, please contact SoJo Event Staff at sojomarathon@sjc.utah.gov or by calling 801-253-5236.  See you October 21, 2017!
