Wizards and Witches are invited out for a magical 5K family fun run to remember. The Fifth Annual Potter Run and the Badger's Year! Proceeds benefit Intermountain Healing Hearts.
We invite you to race live with us in West Jordan, Utah or across the wizarding world in your wizard attire. Each Preregistered participant will receive the commemorative medal, which is the third part of a 4-year series. We are highlighting the Badgers this year. You can also order your special performance tech t-shirt in your registration (these can sell out).
Last day to register is July 27 or when slots fill up.
At the live race enjoy a chance to take pictures with your favorite Characters, Watch the Utah Rivalry Quidditch Tournament, meet live owls and snakes, and play on the castle playground. Stick around for the award ceremony and the costume contest; bring your wands!
I Solemnly Swear that I run for Good...
Your virtual or live run will involve a 5 K done at your own pace and time. This event also will include a new element akin to what happens at the end of every Lets Make a Deal episode! We will tweet/facebook/instagram a clue to something from a classic videogame. Everyone who posts and guesses correctly by sharing their guess as a comment or image with #GeeksforGood and #PotterRun will be entered in to win some great Wizard swag! This includes at the actual live event in West Jordan. Come dressed as whatever you think the clue is or bring something to match it and perhaps you'll win!
These events gets funner when everyone shares their stories and encourages others so please feel free to get as engaged in the event as you'd like.
