What are you doing May 11th 2019 at 8:00 AM? Help us keep our kids Running Forward into the summer by participating in this years Running Forward 5K event!
At the end of each school year, all Running Forward participants from more than 5 Title 1 elementary schools in Salt Lake gather to participate in a 5K race. Before the event, participating students receive a free Running Forward T-shirt and a new set of running shoes. Each race is followed by live music, lunch, and prizes.
This year, we would like to invite all University of Utah students and other members of the local community to participate in this amazing event! Unlike other programs, 100% of your entry fee proceeds will be used to purchase new shoes for our student participants. You will also receive a complimentary Running Forward t-shirt designed by our kids, get to enjoy live music, and most importantly see all of our kids receive their free shoes before their race!! Entry is only $20.00 for members of the community and $15.00 for University of Utah students with a valid UID.
