SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4Utah) – One the of the largest 5K/10K events in the state is the annual Utah Human Race/Holiday Food & Fund Drive. It takes place every Thanksgiving morning. This is the 14th year and all proceeds directly benefit the Utah Food Bank.
Last year almost 5,000 participants were all running with an attitude of gratitude in this family-friendly event. In 2019, the goal is to surpass the 5,000-participant count, which would have a huge impact on the 374,000 Utahns facing hunger.
All ages and speeds are welcome! Costumes are highly encouraged.
The race will be held at a new location in Draper, Vista Station Business Park (12921 Vista Station Boulevard).
Also new this year is the starting time for both the 5K and 10K events beginning at 8:00 am.
You can either register online or in-person at our Salt Lake warehouse the day before the race. There is no same-day registration.
Registration fees are $25 per person for the 5K, and $30 per person for the 10K. Register at UtahHumanRace.org
This year’s Presenting Sponsor is Cameron Construction.
