Marathon, Half-Marathon, Relay, 10K and 5K
Runners from all over the country will be in Rexburg, Idaho to participate in the Teton Dam Marathon & Races. The races include a marathon, half-marathon, relay, 10K and 5K. The Teton Dam Marathon & Races takes place every year around the anniversary of the breaking of the Teton Dam.
In Memory of the Teton Dam Collapse
The annual Teton Dam Marathon is a major event for the Rexburg community and surrounding areas. The Marathon is held in memory of the 1976 Teton Dam that collapsed and flooded Sugar city, Rexburg, and many other towns causing five hundred million dollars in damage.
This tragedy was turned into triumph by the victims’ own faith and courage and by an outpouring of aid by many volunteers from Idaho and nearby states. For this reason over a thousand runners flood the streets to take on their own personal challenge of running a race.
