We will offer last-minute registration on November 22 at packet pick up, but prices will be $35/person for either 5K or 10K and shirts are not guaranteed!

Do I need my registration receipt to pick up my race materials?  Bringing your registration receipt to packet pick up will expedite the process, but it is not necessary.

Can I pick up race materials for others, or can they pick up for me? Yes! Just be sure whoever is picking up has the first and last names of all participants they are picking up for, along with their address and their team name (if applicable).



What if the weather gets bad? The show will go on! Cold temperatures, snow, rain and wind will not be a reason to cancel the event.

Can I walk the 10K? We strongly suggest that all walkers choose the 5K option. This will allow everyone to promptly complete their race so volunteers and staff can clean and enjoy the rest of their Thanksgiving Day.

Do I need to bring canned food to the race? If you are able to, please remember to bring canned goods during packet pick-up or on race day.  Donation barrels will be available at the information booth as well as at the Utah Food Bank truck.

Can I bring Pets/Dogs? No. For your pet's safety and the safety of all event participants, dogs are prohibited per Sandy City ordinances. Dogs are also not permitted in the pre-and post-race areas. Please leave them at home on race day as we will have to ask any people who show up with dogs to either leave them in their car during the race or you will be turned away. No refunds will be offered. Please be sure to share this information with any of your race teammates who may not directly see this information.

Can I participate on roller blades/scooter/bike/skateboard? Stroller? Strollers are permitted to use during the race. Our event insurance policy specifically prohibits the use of rollerblades, scooters, bicycles, and skateboards, so please leave them at home. Please don't jeopardize the future of the event.

Where are lost and found items kept? If there are items not recovered at the event, please contact Melanie at melaniep@utahfoodbank.org. Any items not claimed within a week will be donated to Deseret Industries.

Will there be bathrooms available? We will have port-a-potties available.

Will there be refreshments available? Water and light snacks will be available at the finish line for race participants. We will also have a water station located at approximately mile 2.

Are costumes required? No. Costumes are encouraged, and they are a lot of fun, but they are not required!



We do not offer timing chips or awards for the race. That way, more of your registration fee can be used to feed Utahns facing hunger and support our mission! If you wish to time yourself, we recommend using your personal fitness tracker or a service such as Strava or MapMyRun.



Where do my donations go? Your online donations are processed by Utah Food Bank on our secure website. Proceeds will directly benefit Utah Food Bank's mission of Fighting Hunger Statewide. For more information, please visit http://www.utahfoodbank.org.
