Join us on January 1 for the 2016 New Year’s Revolution Run at the Utah Olympic Oval to make sure your New Year fitness goals begin on the right foot.
We’ll have a five-hour running party that gives runners, walkers and everybody else a chance to kick off their New Year’s Resolution with style – and with 350 running buddies. Run as many, or as few, laps as you want. This is your chance to start the New Year’s fitness goals with a bang.
New this year, we’re capping registration at 365 Runners – we feel that’s the max to allow comfortable running.
Runners will be given a timing chip to wear and be allowed to start their first big workout of the year at 8 a.m. Participants complete as many laps around the climate-controlled indoor track at the Utah Olympic Oval as they’d like until we wrap things up at 1 p.m.
- New for 2016 will be a 5K RACE to get things started at 7:00 a.m.
The runners with the most laps will be declared our overall winners for the day and receive prize packages. We’ll have overall winners for male and female divisions.
We’ll also have a drawing for dozens of prizes while you’re running. After you turn in your timing chip and grab you snacks and finisher medal, check out the list and see if you’re a winner. Prizes range from t-shirts to free race entries.
Not into running? Check out the 5-Hour Cycling Party that will be happening inside the Utah Olympic Oval while the runners do their thing – the New Year’s Revolution Ride.
We also have the Bike/Run combo for you multisport geeks. Bike starts at 8 a.m. sharp and you can slip off the bike and start your run whenever you’re ready.
So, regardless of your 2016 fitness goals or accomplishments, the New Year’s Revolution Run/Ride is your chance to make sure the year starts right.
In case you’re wondering, it takes 95.5 laps at the Utah Olympic Oval to complete a marathon. All runners will receive a finisher’s medal and anyone who completes a full marathon or more gets custom medal engraving to celebrate their dizzying accomplishment.
