David Bell with Runtastic Events joined Emily Clark on ABC4 today to tell us some more information about the 3rd annual Heber Half Run For Autism that is being sponsored by Kids On The Move & Runtastic Events.

The Heber Half Run For Autism live race will take place on Friday, June 27 in Heber City. All proceeds will go to the Kids On The Move Autism Center.

The Heber Half Run for Autism includes a half marathon, a 5K race, and a half-mile all abilities run and this is the first official autism run in Utah.

Runastic Events and Kids on the Move knows that COVID-19 has added additional concerns for everyone this year. They have made sure that they’ve added extra safety precautions for all.

  • Sanitation stations at the starting line, buses, and multiple locations at the finish line that provide hand sanitizer, gloves, masks.
