Categories & Awards
We are excited to introduce the gender inclusive category. We value and recognize that gender goes beyond the binary to encompass many different identities, and we will continue to represent these identities throughout the Festival, including the Pride Day 5K.
Awards will be presented immediately following the race at about 9:45 AM. Utah Pride Festival award packages will go to the overall male, female and gender inclusive finishers. 1st place overall award packages include: 2 Utah Pride Festival VIP Passes which will give you and a friend admission to the Festival and VIP Lounge on Saturday and Sunday, as well as 2 beverages each in the VIP Lounge during the weekend. 2nd & 3rd place overall packages will include 2 Festival Tickets for Saturday and Sunday.
The top male, top female and top gender inclusive in each age-group will also receive awards. Age-groups will be broken down into the following categories for male, female and gender inclusive runners: under 18, 19-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70+.
Athletes will start the race on Capitol Blvd. They will then head north on Capitol Blvd., veering right onto Bonneville Blvd. This road will take athletes to the mouth of City Creek Canyon and up to 11th Avenue. Once reaching 11th Avenue, athletes will turn around and head back down Bonneville Blvd. (North towards the mouth of City Creek). Immediately before reaching the mouth of City Creek Canyon, athletes will turn left onto Canyon Road, which will then direct them down into Memory Grove.
