Your race bib will include a label with your name, gender, age, shirt size, distance (5K or 10K), the pace time you chose while registering and a colored dot that will correspond to your outdoor waiting area based on your pace.

There will be two 10K waves starting at 7:30  a.m. There will be six 5K waves beginning at 8:00 a.m.

Each wave will start based on anticipated finish times so that the course can be as safe and clear as possible for all participants. You may wait inside the general mall area until approximately 15 minutes before your anticipated distance and wave start time.

Be prepared to use the Kohls/Office Depot/Michaels lot, and possibly lots further out such as Smith's/TJ Maxx, Juan Diego High School, and Lone Peak Hospital (not in the emergency room lot). No parking will be allowed on the route -- especially on the east side of the Draper Spectrum or on the east side of State Street. No parking at or near Cinemark Theatres.

What if the weather gets bad?

The show will go on! Cold temperatures, snow, rain and wind will not be a reason to cancel the event.

Can I walk the 10K?

We strongly suggest that all walkers choose the 5K option. This will allow everyone to promptly complete their race and allow volunteers to clean the area so they can celebrate the rest of their Thanksgiving Day. Everyone needs to clear the area by approximately 9:15 a.m. to accommodate theater patrons.

What is a wave start?

In a wave start, smaller groups of participants are set off at 3 minute intervals. Groups are based on the projected pace per mile as indicated on the registration form. If you wish to participate with family and friends, be sure you ALL select the same race category based on estimated pace per mile. The race will begin with the first wave of 10K runners starting at 7:30 a.m., while the first wave of 5K participants begins at 8:00 a.m.

Do I need to bring canned food to the race?

If you are able to, please remember to bring canned goods to donate to Utah Food Bank during packet pick-up or on race day.  Donation barrels will be available at the information booth as well as a drop off at the Utah Food Bank truck.

Can I bring Pets/Dogs?

No. For your pet's safety and the safety of all event participants, dogs are prohibited. Dogs are also not permitted in the pre-and post-race areas. Thanks for your cooperation and understanding.

Can I participate on roller blades/scooter/bike/skateboard? Stroller?

Strollers are permitted to use during the race. Our event insurance policy specifically prohibits the use of roller blades, scooters, bicycles, and skateboards, so please leave them at home. Please don't jeopardize the future of the event.
