Bring the entire family along to join in on the festivities by participating in the Deseret News Classic 5k on July 24, 2014! The run begins at 7:00 at the Wasatch Elementary School Playground, located at 1150 E. South Temple, Salt Lake City, and finishes at Liberty Park where runners will be cheered on by over 100,000 spectators! This year we WILL be timing the race, 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 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!
Participants will need to park or be dropped off at the start line location by Wasatch Elementary School. There will be shuttle buses at the finish line area lined up along 700 East of Liberty Park to transport runners back to their vehicles. Due to the state holiday, the parade and the race route closures and traffic, these shuttle buses will take some time to make their rounds so plan accordingly.
