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 series awards are second to none. We offer:

  • $2,250 in gift cards from Wasatch Running Company to the top male and female Open and Masters winners
  • High-quality medal with a 3d engraving of the Great Saltair to all series finishers
  • Championship plaques to the top three finishers in five-year male and female age divisions
  • Jackets to the top Open and Masters series winners
  • Awards to top age-grade performances
  • RRCA State Championship medals for the male and female winners in the open, masters, grand master, and senior grandmaster categories in each race

Other race benefits include

  • Shelter and refreshments in the Saltair facility

We sold out the 5k and 10k at a record number of 500 registered participants.  There are still a handful of entries available for the 15k on February 25th.  Please help us keep the cost of racing affordable and give back to the community by participating in this event.
