Marimus Larsen (born November 15, 1849) was a Latter-day Saint religious leader and politician in Utah.

Larsen was born in Hurup, Als parish, Aalborg Municipality, Denmark. He converted to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) in 1862. That same year he emigrated to the United States, settling in Spanish Fork, Utah Territory in September.

In 1891, when the one LDS Church ward in Spanish Fork was divided into four, Larsen was made bishop of the Spanish Fork 3rd Ward. He served in that position until 1903.

Larsen served for a time as mayor of Spanish Fork. He also served on the city council. He was a member of the Utah House of Representatives for two terms.
