The 16th annual Utah Human Race will take place on Thanksgiving morning, November 25, 2021.
It’s one of the largest 5K / 10K events in the state, and all proceeds go directly to the Utah Food Bank.
Ginette Bott, president and CEO of the Utah Food Bank, said the goal this year is to surpass the level of 4,000 race participants in 2019. She says that would have a huge impact on the 410,000 people of Utah facing hunger.
“After the hiatus from last year’s virtual race, we look forward to seeing everyone in person this year, and especially those who choose to join us in costumes,” Bott said.
The race will take place at a new location in Sandy on the Sandy Promenade, close to the South Town stores.
5K and 10K events start at 8:00 a.m.
You can register online or in person at the Utah Food Bank’s Salt Lake City warehouse the day before the race. There is no registration the same day.
The registration fee is $ 25 per person for the 5K and $ 30 per person for the 10K.
