The Utah Human Race is a go!
COVID-19 has required us to make a lot of changes so that we can continue our mission of Fighting Hunger Statewide while also caring for the health of our volunteers, employees, and clients. That has included changes to our operations and many of our events, and the Utah Human Race is no exception.
Seeing everyone Thanksgiving morning, many decked out in fun costumes, is one of the highlights of our year, but unfortunately, safety concerns have required us to cancel our regular race. However, Thanksgiving wouldn’t be the same without our annual race, so we’ve switched to a virtual race this year. This way, the tradition can continue, but we’re bringing it to you! Of course, we are also continuing our tradition of supporting our work with all the proceeds from this race, so you will still be able to help us fight hunger with every step.
I’m in! Now what?
Registration is open now, and you can Run With an Attitude of Gratitude any time between November 1 and 27. You can complete a 5K or a 10K, and the cost for either one is $30 and includes a t-shirt.
Once you register, you will receive your t-shirt and bib in the mail, but the earlier you register, the more likely you’ll get your shirt in time for your race. You’ll also get all the tools you need to start a team or to ask your friends and family to support your efforts with a donation. Once you’ve completed your race, you can submit your results online and see how you stacked up against everyone else! Just be sure to register by November 24 at 5 pm, because we will close registration at that time.
We want to see you!
Don’t forget to share this post with your friends and family and tag us in your social media when you race! You can share your run with us by using the #utahhumanrace2020 hashtag or tagging @utahfoodbank. We may even share your social media posts with our followers, ESPECIALLY if you still wear a fun costume! We will miss the fun and community of seeing the nearly 5,000 people who participate every year in person, and we would love to see your posts about the race!
Please join us in making this virtual race a fun and memorable one! Many Utah families are facing empty cupboards instead of feasts this Thanksgiving, and you can make a difference. Your support and participation are what make the Utah Human Race so great!
