Description

Celebrate Salt Lake City's oldest race series, now in its 39th year! Organized by the Salt Lake City Track Club, this legendary, affordable race series gives back to the community. Help us support the Making Strides program to provide shoes, uniforms, and training to help introduce running to the local Boys and Girls Club.

The Races
5K - January 28, 2017, 10 am
10K - February 11, 2017, 10 am
15K - February 25, 2017, 10 am (9:00 am start for slower runners)
The races are well timed to help prepare participants for the Salt Lake City marathon and half marathon. The courses are USATF certified, fast, and record eligible for elite runners, and are also ideal for first time race participants. Because of the later start time (10 am), it's also a terrific race for families.

Check out the bling! Our awards are second to none. We offer:

A cumulative of $2,250 in gift cards from the Wasatch Running Center to the top male and female open and masters runners in the 3 races
Unique medal featuring a 3d engraving of the Great Saltair to all series finishers
