Since 2009, the marathon has been part of the Utah Grand Slam.

The race is run mostly by volunteers. The Children with Cancer Christmas Foundation and Deseret International are the two charities. The Children with Cancer Christmas foundation has been part of the race since its inception in 2008. In 2010, Deseret International has been added as a second charitable recipient. Every year since its inception, the event has included a 5K. In 2010, a half-marathon race is being added. The 26 mile 385 yard course runs through Wasatch and Utah Counties. The race begins in Wallsburg, UT at an elevation of 5,963 feet (1,818 meters) and heads northwest through Wallsburg along Highway 222.
