RUN SLC Series 5k
February 4, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Join us for the 2017 RUN SLC Race Series– the perfect Utah running race series to beat the winter blues and get a head start into spring. New to running? The RUN SLC Race Series is open to all ages and abilities. Train with some friends and work up from a 5K to 15K…pretty soon you will be ready for a marathon.
All of the races start and end at Salt Lake Running Company (2454 S 700 E) and are fully supported with traffic control and aid stations to ensure a safe and enjoyable run for all. These fun Utah runs go along quiet tree lined streets through some of Salt Lake City’s 1920’s era neighborhoods including a pass through Liberty Park . . . the “Central Park” of Salt Lake City.
Social runners and competitive runners alike will enjoy the flat nature of the course. There are no grueling hills or hot temperatures to deal with on this run. It is perfect for runners doing their first race and for those striving for a personal best. Social runners will enjoy the festive atmosphere and positive vibe. Competitive runners will enjoy competing for glory and prizes against other athletes of their same age and gender. Elite Utah runners will enjoy competing against sponsored athletes and past champions. Professional chip timing will provide all runners with an accurate time to measure their future performance against and see how they stack up on race day. If you used to be a competitive road runner or were on the cross country team in high school or college, this is a fun run to get back into it.
After the race, it’s celebration time with music, local vendors and food trucks in the parking lot. Stick around for great raffle prizes and awards. Non-runners, not-yet runners, and used-to-be runners are welcome and encouraged to participate as spectators or race volunteers.
