About the organizers: Headspin & Logan Downtown
It all started when…
9 years ago a partnership between a new cycling event, (Cache Gran Fondo) and the Logan Downtown Alliance formed over a singular idea to create an event that focused on providing a world-class athletic experience in the heart of downtown Logan, Utah. Today the Cache Gran Fondo is one of the top ten Gran Fondo events in the USA, and in 2019 - 2021 will showcase the Logan and Cache Valley area to hundred of high-end cyclists from literally all over the the world.
Our goal is to take the great legacy of the Top of Utah Marathon and apply the same level of event structure from these other Downtown Logan events, to create an experience that celebrates the runner and brings the runner community closer together in a festive downtown venue.
We start by closing off an entire block, and for the Logan City Marathon that street will be Historic Center Street between Main Street and 100 West. Then we engage with several Center Street Restaurants who provide a special meal for all the participants, and for the marathon attendees in 2019. We will be serving brunch from great local eating establishments like The Crepery, Stacked Pancakes, Great Harvest Bread, The Waffle Iron, Bluebird Cafe, and Center Street Grill. We’ll also take your running experience to a new level with the Altra Runner’s Festival where running products and services will be showcased to both runners and spectators in a huge party-like atmosphere! Top it off with great live music, plenty of seating, and a photo podium and back-drop to making the entire block a fun and exciting place before, during and after the racing.
