Is there an entrance fee?

This is a free non-profit event. There is no entrance fee. 


Do I have to register? Who should register?

1) Registering gives us a heads up on how many to expect and prepare accordingly.

2) If you register as "running" you  are considered a runner and will receive a race bib number on race day.

Is the race timed?

No. There will be an unofficial clock at the finish to view. Participants are responsible for their own times.

Do I have to buy a T-shirt?

Absolutely not.  A fun option to add to an exciting event.

Is there a kid's race?

No, we have decided to concentrate our efforts on the main event, the 5k. Families can walk the race together as a mini pilgrimage back to the temple.

Water Stations will be available at Mile Marker 1 & 2. 

Restrooms available at Kelly Road Park, Jaycee Park, and the stake center.

Parking  Participants need make arrangements to be dropped off if possible at the start location and picked up after the run at the finish location, as there is limited parking at Olive Chapel Elementary and the stake center. Additional parking located at the shopping center across from the elementary. 

Shuttle service will be available for participants that need to return to their parked cars at the start location/elementary.

Drivers can drop off participants at the elementary, then head to the stake center parking lot to cheer loved ones on as they finish the course.

*Once the race begins, the stake center parking lot will be closed until the race is completed for the participants safety, as the course circles the parking lot for the finish. We ask all that park at the stake center be prepared to wait to leave until it reopens. Stay and cheer on your stake family!
