2021 race guide

Clothing drop. You may drop clothes at aid stations. After all races are complete, the aid station volunteers will return to the start, with the clothes. You can look through the dropped clothes for your items. We are not responsible for lost or stolen clothes, dropped at an aid station. Also, if you drop clothes at the first aid station, it could be 4 hours before your clothes are returned to the start as the first aid station, is also the last aid station. Drop clothes at your own risk.

Finisher medals and awards.

Each finisher of all distances will receive a finisher medal. Age group male female 1-3 for all 3 races will receive an award. Age groups will be determined by the number of runners in each race distance. After your race is over, we should be able to do awards pretty quickly. We won't require you to wait hours to get your award. Results are at RMraceslive.com

The course starts at 1201 S Mountain View Blvd at the Mountain View Park in Woods Cross, Utah. IMPORTANT INFO. While on Legacy Trail, when you get to the tunnel that goes under Legacy Highway, continue under the highway. This area is a trail intersection, you can go 3 ways so go under the highway. We will have signs and spray chalk pointing the way. I hope to have a volunteer stationed there as well, if we have enough people to place there. At the 2nd aid station, you will need to make a right turn. There will be signs and people to help you but please remember 2nd aid station, turn right, do not go straight. Continue to mile 6.55 and turn around. When you come out of the tunnel under Legacy Highway, on your way back, keep right at the trail intersection. Just remember to reverse what you did running out. See maps on our Facebook Page. March Madness Half a Marathon and 5K. If it is snowing, remember to use good judgment and know your abilities. If you need to shorten the distance, please do. 5K runners run to mile 1.55 and turnaround, 10 runners run to mile 3.1 and turn around.

 

Aid stations at mile 1.66, 4,  6.55 9.64, and 11.78. We will have Gatorade and water at miles 1.33, 4 9.64 and 11.78. Mile 3.48 and mile 9.64, will have gels. We will have water at mile 6.55. There will be porta potties at the aid stations, except at mile 6.55. 5K will not have an aid station. 10K will only have one aid stations. Mile 1.66 but you will pass it twice. Once going out and once coming back.

 

All race distances will start promptly at 9:00 am. 5K and 10K courses are the same as Half but turns around at mile 1.55 for 5K and mile 3.1 for 10K on Legacy Trail. You may go down in distance but you can't go up. There will be pizza, water, and other food at the finish line. Pizza will arrive about 10:00 If you were in the 5K or 10K and want to wait, you will be allowed to have pizza.

IMPORTANT. As stated above, race will start at 9:00 am. It will be a chip start. We will only leave the chip start open for about 3 minutes after the last runner starts. So if you arrive at late and run, the chip start will be closed and your time will default to a gun start and you will already have about 20 minutes added to your time. We do this so we can do awards quicker. If we leave the chip start open for 30 minutes, you have to wait 30 minutes after you finish, for your time to be final. To avoid all that, just be on time. Your time doesn't start, until you cross the start line except for runners competing for cash.

 

Thank you for your support. We have tried to keep this race at a reasonable price and still make enough money for the food pantry. See you at the races!

I really enjoyed this race! I thought that the course was great; I am a big fan of flat courses. I thought that the race was organized well. Everything went smoothly, and the race started promptly at 9am. I also thought that the way the organizers posted the results, and did the raffle as the race was going was great. This race was also for a good cause, which is a huge bonus. It was a good experience, and I would do it again!

Great 10k

They forgot my t shirt size when I submitted the registration but after sending an email it was quickly updated. The course was flatter than I liked, but I thought it was pretty cool that it followed the Legacy Parkway.

Half Marathon

Every aspect of this race, from registration, to packet pickup, to the finish line, was very well-organized. Packet pickup was fast and simple. There were plenty of volunteers handing out gels, Gatorade, and water, as well as porta potties on the course. It was an out-and-back course which made it speedy, but not monotonous at all. Bikers and walkers were on the trails alongside us, but they were never in our way. Highly recommend donating canned goods at the race, it is for an excellent cause!

Great Race!

This is a really fun flat course to run a race on. It is a low key race which is nice and there aren't a ton of participants. I love the benefit to the community as well.
