Charity 5K run/walk details

 The 5K begins at 9:30 a.m. and takes place at Wheeler Historic Farm in Salt Lake City, Utah! Wheeler Farms has a USATF certified 5K route we will be utilizing. This will be a chip timed event for the competitive runner looking to win their age group or post a personal record. Or if a morning walk is your goal, you are invited to be a part of the festivities! The course will close at 10:30 a.m.

Mascot Family Fun Run:

Did you know we have a Yeti at Avalaunch Media?
Don’t worry, he’s not the scary kind.

We’re inviting you to bring out your kids to be a part of the Mascot Family Fun Run! Join Eddie the Yeti along with other area mascots at 9:00 a.m. for a fun one mile run. If you are registered for the 5K, you can participate in the fun run at no charge!
