Fun Run  5K & 10K

Each year the Youth City Council organizes the fun run for the Festival. It fits perfectly with the other “healthy” projects the Youth Council does, such as the yearly activity at the Ephraim Elementary where they raise money for the American Heart Association through the Jump Rope for Heart. The Youth Council is encouraging all to develop a healthy heart and the Fun Run is a great way to do this while you are in the “Heart of Utah.”

The run will feature three race lengths: the 5K for the easy going, a 10K and the Half Marathon for the die-hards. The run isn’t just for runners–People are always welcome to come and walk. Registration for the run will start at 6 a.m. (Saturday) at the Snow College Stake Center Parking Lot. There is a $10 entry fee and all participants who register online before May 25 are guaranteed a t-shirt and number. $50 cash for top male and female runners in all races except walk.
