The inaugural Wings of Justice 5 Canyons 50k Ultramarathon will be held on Saturday, September 21, 2019. We will be meeting at Black Bear Diner (1966 E. 9400 S.) in Sandy, UT at 6:30 AM for a complimentary pancake breakfast before taking a shuttle over to Elbow Fork in Millcreek Canyon where the race will begin at 8 AM.
The run begins at Elbow Fork in Millcreek Canyon and then proceeds up the Mount Aire Trail over Lamb’s Canyon Pass and down Lamb’s Canyon Trail through Lamb’s Canyon into Parley’s Canyon. It continues from Parley’s Canyon along the Sheep Trail and Mormon Pioneer Trail into Emigration Canyon, and then down Emigration Canyon Road to the Bonneville Shoreline Trail. From there, we climb up Mount Wire and then down George’s Hollow continuing on the BST over to City Creek Canyon, finishing at Memory Grove Park. The run includes more than 6,000 feet of vert over 50 kilometers (32 miles)!
The run is FREE. We simply ask that you consider making a donation to the cause. (We are grateful for donations of any size.) In addition to any personal donation you decide to make, you can also ask your family and friends to donate a penny for each foot of elevation you climb during the run. ALL proceeds from the run (and team merchandise sales) go to help the kids.
