This event is a hoot and a holler! Bring the whole family, pick an event (half marathon, 5k or 1k), and run with Pioneer Pete! Afterwards all registered participants can receive a free breakfast courtesy of the Bountiful Exchange Club. Then head to the park for fun and games! Celebrate Bountiful's heritage!Handcart Half MarathonOur half marathon course is a great course! It’s not your typical “downhill canyon” Utah course, but we think that’s what makes it great! It’s mostly flat, with a few slight inclines. (Total gain: 187 ft / Total descent: 161 ft). You’ll get to head out to the legacy trail for about 5 miles of the half and you’ll head back through the beautiful city streets of Farmington, Centerville and Bountiful! The race starts at 6:00am so you can beat the heat of July!Frontier 5KThis is the course we use for all of our 5K races! If you’ve run with us before, it’s fairly easy…. All right hand turns and pretty flat! There will be one aid station about ½ way through which will provide water, Gatorade and first aid to any in need. It is located half way through the race at Porter Lane (1600 N) and Main Street. We do not close any roads for our races, please be safe and know the course!Pioneer Pete 1KFor the 1K, it’s also all right turns! Pioneer Pete will lead the way for all 1K runners. The 1K starts in the parking lot behind our facility. Look for a large sign, that says “1K START” which will be right near the bowery’s north end. The route goes around our facility and ends back in the same parking lot it started in. We ask that all 1K racers stay on the sidewalk, know where to go (the course), and have an adult accompany them if they are under 5 years old. All 1K racers should pay extra close attention to our parking lot entrances! We have volunteers staffed there to direct traffic, but racers need to be aware of their surroundings and cars.
