Support the Ashton Food Bank

Ashton Food Bank

The Grand Teton Relay has discontinued, leaving behind a need in the community of Ashton. In the past the GTR has helped collect hundreds of pounds of food for the Ashton Food Bank. The Mesa Falls Marathon has taken up the mantle and asks that each and every runner donate a few cans of food. Donations can be provided at packet pickup prior to the marathon. The Ashton Food Bank thanks you!

Sad Day For The Marathon

Jean Howell

For hundreds of our runners over the years, the aid station at the top of the hill coming up out of Warm River was a very welcome site for two reasons, One, because it signaled the end of the uphill climb, and two; because Jean Howell, the little white haired lady that manned the station,greeted all the runners with great enthusiasm. Sadly, following some health issues, she has passed away.
