We are so excited to see you all again on Thanksgiving morning to Run with an Attitude of Gratitude for the 16th annual Utah Human Race! Registration is open now, so get your team together and get ready for a fun time! We’ve got a new location in Sandy – near The Shops at South Town, with plenty of parking nearby. While the place has changed, the essential things are still the same – this family-friendly 5K/10K fun run is still the best way to work up an appetite for Thanksgiving dinner while helping provide meals for our neighbors in need. Every registration fee and sponsorship dollar benefits Utah Food Bank’s mission of Fighting Hunger Statewide.
Races will not be timed this year, but you will be asked to choose a general pace time group on the morning of the race, which will begin at 8 am for both 5K and 10K participants. If you are running with a group or team, please be sure to all choose the same pace time if you want to remain together. Online registration closes on November 22 at noon, and there is no same-day registration. However, registration will be available in-person during packet pick-up at Utah Food Bank on November 24. When you register, you will have the ability to spearhead your own fundraising efforts within your social group, which will only increase this race’s impact on our neighbors in need.
This race is one of our favorite traditions here at Utah Food Bank. “It’s amazing to see the number of families, individuals, and businesses who care enough about the 1 in 5 Utah children facing hunger that they have made this a Thanksgiving tradition,” said Ginette Bott, President & CEO of Utah Food Bank. “We highly encourage anyone participating to make it even more fun by wearing a costume on race day—one of our favorite things is seeing all the creative costumes participants come up with!”
Big thanks to presenting sponsor Cameron Construction and gold sponsors Discover and University of Utah Health.
