Bring the entire family along to join in on the festivities by participating in the Deseret News 5K. Kids 14 and under get to participate for only $15 (price stays the same right up until race day). The run begins at 50 S. 900 E., Salt Lake City and finishes at Liberty Park where runners will be cheered on by over 100,000 spectators! This event will be chip timed so get your competitive spirit going and prepare to run! For those kids and families who would prefer to walk rather than run, we will be doing two start waves, the first for runners and the second for walkers. Everyone will be timed regardless of if you choose to run or walk and all finishers will receive medals!
