Description:

A popular New Year’s Eve tradition, our 38th Annual Beat The New Year 5k really is all about the kids.  A major part of Salt Lake City Track Club’s community involvement is about Making Strides for Kids, a 5-week program hosted in partnership with a local, under-served elementary school.  Your participation helps us provide free running shoes, shirts, running-related instruction, and coaching to these kids.  

So come out for some Puttin’ on the Ritz to celebrate best costume, your fitness goals, or just plain cheer.  Our kids programs will greatly benefit from your participation.  Let's make this a new, New Year's tradition!

Course description:

The course is 2 clockwise loops entirely within Sugar House Park, starting at the Northeast corner of road and including a section of the spur north of the pond.
